The Birmingham office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell has appointed Real Estate partner Martin McQueen as part of its ongoing investment to expand its business team.

Martin, who moves from Shakespeare Martineau, is qualified in Scotland and England and specialises in property development and finance matters.

Joining a team headed up by Ben Acheson, Martin regularly advises clients in relation to development, acquisitions and disposals, landlord and tenant and refinancing projects.
 
Commenting on his arrival, Martin McQueen said: “Irwin Mitchell’s Real Estate department is very well respected with significant strength in depth and I am looking forward to working with and being part of such a strong national team.

“This is an exciting time to be joining Irwin Mitchell. The firm has recently merged with Thomas Eggar, but in addition to this, here in Birmingham it has continued to make significant investment in building a first class business legal services team.”

Ben Acheson, Head of Real Estate at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office, said:

Expert Opinion
“Martin is a well-respected operator in the West Midlands. He has great cross-border property development, acquisition and refinancing expertise and I have no doubt that he will be a huge asset as we continue to build and invest in the team.”

Last year, Irwin Mitchell announced and completed the merger with Thomas Eggar. The deal creates a £250m legal services business, a top-five private wealth legal team and a platform for Irwin Mitchell to significantly grow their combined business legal services operation across the UK.
