I am Chief Executive of the firm’s Personal Legal Services (PLS) division encompassing a broad range of legal services for individuals, including:
These teams provide legal services to private individuals either directly or via a number of banks, insurance companies, building societies and other financial services organisations. In addition to our financial services partners, we partner with a host of organisations from the retail, charity and utilities sectors.
Many of our Personal Legal Services teams are ranked in the top-tier of firms by leading independent legal guides the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2007 as part of a merger with Golds, my former firm. I was Chief Executive of our Private Client Legal Services Division, which comprises our Private Wealth, Court of Protection, Conveyancing, and Retail Lending Services Probate teams, from May 2011, before taking over the reins of PLS in May 2014.
“We have a fantastic heritage across all four businesses with strong track records and great expertise in Berkeley Law, Berkeley Hurrell, Thomas Eggar and Irwin Mitchell.
“The launch of Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is the next stage of our journey to becoming a market-leading service for private individuals. It builds on the fantastic reputation our teams already have for their expertise and client care.
“We have strength in depth as well as being able to offer clients access to the broader range of Irwin Mitchell’s legal services and expertise, and we will be looking to further strengthen our new team and increase our range of services over the coming months. We think that is a compelling offering which will be attractive to our existing clients and those who choose Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth in the future.”
"It’s fantastic to see so many of our lawyers personally recommended in the guide by their clients and peers but what is most pleasing is that the comments show that as a whole we are providing personal legal services at the highest level across the whole of the UK.
“We are incredibly committed to putting our clients first at all times and to be independently recognised as being at the top of the industry makes me very proud.
“It’s encouraging that our newest offices in Southampton and Cambridge are ranked so highly as they continue to grow and that several of our private wealth lawyers from Berkeley Law are also recognised.
“We will now seek to build on this by achieving even stronger rankings next year.”
“Our extremely strong performance in the independent Legal 500 rankings shows that our personal legal services lawyers are very highly regarded. We have some of the best legal experts in the country working in our personal injury, private client and public law teams and they are achieving excellent results for our clients.
“Throughout the year we have regularly taken cases to the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court as we fight for the rights of our clients, and we will continue to do so to further the best interests of the people we represent.
“This has been an exciting year for Irwin Mitchell as our new acquisitions and new offices have bedded in and we are pleased that they have been recognised for their excellent work already. We are delighted to post improved rankings and cement our position as the number one consumer law firm in the country.”
