Irwin Mitchell became one of the first Legal Disciplinary Partnerships (LDP) in May 2010, allowing non-solicitors to become Equity Partners for the first time. In May 2011, we implemented a new two-tier management structure for our business, creating a holding company. Our equity partners became shareholders of this new company, Irwin Mitchell Holdings Ltd, as well as remaining as members of Irwin Mitchell.
