Lawyers from Birmingham firm Irwin Mitchell swapped legal documents for running shoes at the weekend by taking part in the Norman Laud Association 7 Pools Run.

Five legal experts from the firm took part in the 10k run in Sutton Park on Sunday (9 June) to raise funds for the Norman Laud Association which provides quality short break services for children and young adults with special needs, and support services for their families.

In all, 315 runners took part including Anupa Patel, Taninder Choda, Lydia Arntzen, Andrew Bryan and Ryan Blake who all work at Irwin Mitchell’s Office on Temple Street.

The firm also sponsored the organising of the event and Ryan Blake from the Medical Law and Patients Rights team handed over the fastest male and fastest female prizes to Mike Bouldstridge and Kelly Murphy.

He said: “The event had a great turn out and we hope lots of funds were raised for such a worthy cause.

“Many Irwin Mitchell clients need specialist one-on-one rehabilitation and support after they have been the victim of medical negligence or serious injury and we share a common goal with the Norman Laud Association to help these people reach their full potential and have the best quality of life possible.

“Irwin Mitchell is committed to being a socially responsible organisation and encourages its staff to take part in a variety of projects as part of a comprehensive community programme, that includes raising attainment in schools, supporting vulnerable groups and offering pro bono support to those who need it the most.”
