Business Legal Services Growth Continues With Latest Appointment


The Sheffield office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell has further boosted its commercial and transactions expertise after appointing associate solicitor Mark Evans.

Joining the team from Nabarro, Mark specialises in advising on all aspects of commercial contracts.

His specialist areas of expertise include major outsourcing contracts, including in the financial services public and third sectors, and collaboration agreements, working on IT and technology contracts with organisations in the technology and biotech sector, as well as advising on competition and procurement.

“There is real growth, enthusiasm and momentum with the firm right now and I have joined to help build this further over the coming months and years.”
