Leading Family Lawyer John Nicholson Joins Irwin Mitchell In London

Family Law Team Expands South East Offering



Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell has announced a further boost to its prestigious family law team this week with the appointment of Partner John Nicholson.

Recognised by industry guide Chambers & Partners as “a classy negotiator with an assured manner that enables him to quickly build a rapport with clients”, John has joined the national law firm’s growing team as it continues to progress its strategic plans for a network of leading family teams across the UK.  He is based in the London office.

The move has seen him switch to Irwin Mitchell, from his previous role as Partner at international law firm Speechly Bircham where he had practised since 2008.

John, a fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, said: “This is an opportunity that was too good to miss. Irwin Mitchell has a national team of market-leading family lawyers and I saw it as the perfect home for me to continue to provide an approachable, first-class client service.” 

He will also shortly be joined by colleague Kate Clark, a highly experienced assistant who worked alongside John at Speechly Bircham and will add further strength to the Irwin Mitchell London team. 

Elizabeth Hicks, head of the London based family law at Irwin Mitchell, added: “We have delivered a major part of our strategic plan which is to have first-rate family lawyers right across the country, in all our offices, for our clients to call on when they need them.

“John is another excellent addition to our team and I look forward to working with him and continuing to build a leading family team in London and the South East.”
