Irwin Mitchell’s Newcastle office has reaffirmed its commitment to growth in the region, amidst great changes on the legal landscape, as it celebrates opening its Newcastle office doors ten years ago.
Irwin Mitchell’s regional hub – which delivers legal services to the North East and Cumbria, opened on Grey Street in the city centre in May 2003 with just 10 staff helping clients with personal injury and medical law cases.
Since then the firm has become a formidable advocate for clients facing a plethora of legal issues such as serious injury, workplace illness, medical negligence and asbestos exposure as well as providing support on public law and court of protection issues.
Known nationally for its commitment to securing funds to provide clients with comprehensive care and rehabilitation packages, Irwin Mitchell’s regional managing partner John Davis said it’s ‘all aspects’ approach to helping clients and the local community had been key to its success and growth to date in the North East.
In the past decade the office has worked closely with a number of local charities such as Headway and Brainbox, which support people with brain injuries, Disability North, Contact a Family and Heel & Toe, as well as the Newcastle office’s 2013 Charity of the Year, the Abbie Harbottle Fund for Sick Children, a charity dedicated to providing equipment for children’s wards in hospitals across the North East.
To celebrate the milestone anniversary, Irwin Mitchell joined forces with youngsters at Hadrian School in Newcastle, which caters for children with complex disabilities and learning difficulties, who released 500 balloons from the school’s grounds, in May this year.
