AFG LAW appoints two new Directors as Firm continues growth

Friday March 1, 2024

Leading North West Law firm, AFG LAW, have announced the appointment of two new company Directors in a move which will support the continued growth of the firm.

AFG, with offices in Bolton and Bury, is a long established, multi-disciplinary law firm providing a range of services across the region and beyond. With experts in aspects of law including Family, Conveyancing, Commercial Property, Dispute Resolution and Wills and Probate, it is built on traditional foundations combined with modern values and a fresh, forward-thinking approach.

The new Directors, who are part of the existing management team, are Stacy Fox and Kate Bullen.

Stacy Fox joined the Family Law team in 2018 and is a Children’s Panel accredited representative and a High Court advocate, having gained the Higher Rights of Audience qualification in 2022 which enables her to represent her clients and children in family cases within the High Court, including matters such as Deprivation of Liberty Orders and applications made under the Inherent Jurisdiction.

She said:

“I am proud and excited to become a Director at AFG. Having worked for the firm for over five years, I have seen it grow rapidly, in the family department where I work and across the firm as a whole.  I am looking forward to working with all the Directors to continue to support the firm to thrive, for the benefit of our fantastic team and our clients.”

Kate Bullen joined AFG just 18 months ago to build a new Commercial Property team, which has gone from strength to strength. She commented:

“I am delighted to have been invited to become a Director at AFG and it is an exciting prospect to become part of a young, dynamic and forward thinking management team. I am looking forward to the future and further successes for both my team and the firm.”

The appointments reflects AFG’s ambitious strategy for growth across all areas and reinforces the firm’s continued focus on delivering exceptional service to it’s clients and employees, with both new Directors contributing considerably to the success of the firm moving forward.

The new appointments come hot on the heels of an incredibly busy six months for the firm, which saw several new staff, a move to a new, modern office in Bolton and a win of a top business award for the Family Law department.

AFG LAW has a rich 126 year history and is led by joint Managing Directors Anita Boardman and Greg French.

Greg French who is also a solicitor in Commercial Property said :

“We are thrilled to announce these new appointments as we move in to 2024. AFG is built on long-standing values with a modern approach and we feel that Kate and Stacy can bring great things to the board with their energy and dynamism.

Emma Cordock, Head of the Family Department said:

‘’I am extremely pleased that Stacy has joined AFG  as Director, her hard work and commitment shines through; I am looking forward to her being part the continued development and growth of the family department and the firm as a whole. I am also looking forward to working with Kate on the Board, having only heard positive things about her from my fellow Directors.”
