Andrew Walker, Partner in the Insolvency team said: “We are delighted with this award in what has been both an eventful and challenging year for the insolvency world – this affirms us as a serious player in the Leeds marketplace. It will be a boost to the team and is testament to all their hard work as well as reassuring us that we are developing this business area in the right way.

“I am particularly proud of a couple of comments made in relation to this award that our team were top professionals that take time to care about the detail, and that we are hard up on the coat tails of the more established firms.”

Kevin Cunningham, Partner and Head of the Corporate team at Irwin Mitchell in Yorkshire, said: “Our intention is to build on this recognition. We are continuing to recruit and will be announcing new appointments this month as we continue our expansion into 2010. I like to think that our increasing client portfolio is because of our down to earth advice and unrivalled breadth of expertise.”
