Irwin Mitchell Wins CSR Award

Second Corporate Responsibility Award This Year For Irwin Mitchell Scotland


By Rob Dixon

Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell Scotland has won the Corporate Social Responsibility Firm Of The Year award at the Law Awards of Scotland - the second award for its community work the firm has secured this year.

At a ceremony held at the Raddison Blu Hotel in Glasgow last night, the best legal firms and individuals that Scotland has to offer were honoured at The Law Awards of Scotland, which was celebrating its 10th anniversary as the country’s premier legal event.

Irwin Mitchell Scotland was earlier this year rewarded for their fundraising efforts at the Scott and Co Scottish Legal Awards.

Lawyers and staff from the firm have wowed judges with their dedication to local charities such as Yorkhill Children’s Foundation in Glasgow, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer Support and Child Bereavement UK.

The Glasgow team raised money for charities last year by taking part in a variety of events, such as a 5K run, a cycle ride between Marie Curie centres in Glasgow and Newcastle, an Olympic-themed lunch, a Wii fitness challenge and a relay along the route of the Edinburgh Marathon.

Irwin Mitchell Scotland’s Managing Partner, Craig Marshall, said: “Fundraising for charities which are close to all our hearts is a big part of our social responsibility programme at Irwin Mitchell and the dress down days, bake sales, fun runs and challenges we’ve held to boost the Irwin Mitchell Charities Foundation is a great way for us to give something back to the community. 

“It has been a real team effort and we are absolutely thrilled to win this award, which I’m sure will inspire us carry on our charity work in future.”

Craig added: “To win a second award for our corporate and social responsibility is testament to the hard work all of our staff put in every day for the most important people in our business, our clients, and it’s great to see our efforts recognised like this.”
