The Corporate team within national law firm Irwin Mitchell has announced a new partnership with Directorbank.
 
As part of the arrangement, Irwin Mitchell will be sponsoring Directorbank’s annual Private Equity drinks event focusing on the northern region which takes place later this month in Leeds.
 
There will be around 80 guests present – a mix of leading management from the region – typically Chairs, Chief Executives, Non-Executive Directors, Finance Directors, and Chief Operating Officers - and private equity investors with regional interests.
 
This event is one of a series hosted by the organisation across the year, and provides guests with an ideal platform for developing relationships, sharing experiences and identifying opportunities.
 
Founded in 1998, Directorbank introduces high calibre entrepreneurial directors to the dynamic private equity industry. In addition to providing valuable networking opportunities, it offers executive search and pre-deal recruitment support.
 
Chris Rawstron, Head of Corporate at Irwin Mitchell, said:
