2018 UK Guide Celebrates Strength Of National Team
Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has made gains in the Legal 500 2018 UK guide, with five top-tier practice areas and 15 ranked practice areas in total.
The top independent directory’s results were recently published and confirmed Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth had maintained many of its original rankings, including five top-tier practices across the UK.
There were also three practice areas which resulted in gains for our Southampton Family Law team and our Chichester, Gatwick and Newbury Tax, Trusts and Estates teams. The former entered the rankings for the first time while the latter all moved up a tier in the directory.
Three partners – Ros Bever, Paula Myers and Paula James – were listed as leading individuals while partners Nathaniel Grourke and Sarah Balfour were ranked as next generation lawyers.
The rankings confirmed Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth’s growing market share and regional presence and complement the wealth of awards the firm has recently recognised for including winning National Firm of the Year at the British Wills and Probate Awards as well as being nominated for Private Client Team of the Year at the upcoming British Legal Awards.
Across all three of its divisions Irwin Mitchell was named as a top-tier law firm for 31 practice areas and recommended in 71 others. The results also come at the same time Irwin Mitchell was named as a leading law firm in The Times’ inaugural guide to the best law firms in the UK.
