National Tax, Trusts And Estates Team Given Highest Level
The national Tax, Trusts and Estates team at leading law firm Irwin Mitchell has been awarded platinum accreditation from professional association STEP.
The programme, which was founded in 2014, highlights best practices in learning and staff development. There are three levels of accreditation, with platinum being the highest available.
The endorsement takes into account a firm’s quality of training, learning and development and distinguishes Irwin Mitchell, which formed its private wealth arm in 2016, as a quality employer.
Expert Opinion“This absolutely fantastic news is a testament to the strength of our national team, which is not only one of the largest in the country but which is brimming with talented solicitors who go the extra mile every day for their clients.
“Many of the team were already junior and senior members of STEP, so going for platinum status accreditation was a natural step for us, and one we are extremely pleased to have been granted.
“STEP’s platinum accreditation also takes into account the quality of our training and support that we offer to our team, which as we continue to grow has remained consistently high in standards.
“Not only does this prestigious certification from STEP let the private client sphere know about the eminence of our work and team, it confirms our position as a leading presence in the market – hopefully for many years to come.” Paula Myers - Partner
