Tara Wright Joins One Of Biggest Family Teams In The Midlands
Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has hired a new solicitor to join its family team in Birmingham, which is one of the biggest in the West Midlands.
Tara Wright joins from Benussi & Co, having qualified in 2017. Tara previously trained at Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth’s Birmingham office under partners Nicola Walker and Clare Wiseman, who now heads the Birmingham family team and who is highly regarded in the West Midlands and London markets.
Tara’s experience lies in advising clients on high-value financial remedy matters, pre and post-nuptial agreements and civil partnership dissolutions among others. Her client base is comprised of high-net-worth individuals and families.
Tara joins an award-winning team: the outfit won the Family Team of the Year award at the Family Law Awards in December 2017. Associate solicitor and family law expert Mark Hands was also named on eprivateclient’s Top 35 Under 35 listing in 2017.
The team which is highly regarded in leading independent legal directories Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 has grown rapidly in recent months, with Gemma Whitchurch returning from maternity leave and appointing associate Gemma Fenton late last year.
Expert Opinion“We’re delighted that Tara decided to return to Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, having previously trained here. It’s a testament to both our reputation in the West Midlands market and the congenial nature of the team.
“Tara has joined us at a very exciting time for the team, which has seen massive growth in the last year and our achievements recognised with leading cases and nominations for multiple awards. With Tara’s appointment we look to servicing our clients even more effectively and ensuring we are the best family law team in the West Midlands – something we have always strived to be.
“I know Tara will settle back in well and I look forward to her getting to know our colleagues across the Private Wealth business, both in Birmingham and nationally within the firm.” Clare Wiseman - Family Partner and Head of International Family Law
