Reading Office Marks Expanding Business Opportunities For Leading Law Firm
Irwin Mitchell has opened an office in Reading, further expanding its reach in the Thames Valley region.
The leading national law firm has opened its latest office in the heart of Reading’s town centre, which will complement the existing and well-established Newbury practice.
The Reading office will open with a tax, trusts and estates (TTE) team while the current Newbury office which has a TTE team and a residential property team, will also move to new premises within Newbury in September.
The new office will be Irwin Mitchell’s 15th office with a presence in most major cities across the UK, having recently moved to new premises in Manchester and confirming an office move in Birmingham.
The TTE team that will be operating from the new Reading location recently expanded to appoint solicitor Robert Mulvany, who joined from Blake Morgan, with the office looking to grow significantly in the future in both private client and business legal services.
The team has a significant presence in the local area and is highly ranked by leading independent legal directories Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500, the latter describing regional managing partner Sarah Phillips as ‘the consummate professional with the bonus of a caring nature’.
Expert Opinion“We are all hugely excited by this news, which gives us a great opportunity to continue to work together and also expand to be able to help more clients across the Thames Valley region.
“Our clients are increasingly using more and more different services with us, whether that is on an individual basis or for their business. Opening our reach out to Reading - which already has a strong legal market - gives us the opportunity to provide not just private client expertise but also to support businesses as well, so we can give our clients the full-service we have in our other major offices.” Sarah Phillips - Head of Lifetime and Estate Planning in the Thames Valley
