David Shirt, Press Officer | 0161 838 3094

Law firm Irwin Mitchell has announced a new partnership arrangement with Envestors Limited’s northern office – the specialist corporate finance house for high growth entrepreneurial businesses.

The leading law firm has become a Corporate Specialist Partner for Envestors’ North which incorporated Yorkshire Association of Business Angels (YABA) into the business last year.

The organisation, Envestors North (YABA), provides an introduction service for private equity investors, entrepreneurs and companies seeking finance, typically providing investment of between £300,000 to £1m for younger companies and up to £10m for more established businesses.

As part of the partnership arrangement, Irwin Mitchell will host, attend and help facilitate Envestors’ monthly investment briefings on securing equity investment. These interactive sessions provide an opportunity for businesses from across the region to pitch their business, whilst receiving specialist advice in relation to key issues including important legal considerations.

The best companies are then selected to present their opportunity to a growing network of over 70 angel investors.  The members have a total of c.£19 million of risk capital to invest in sums ranging from £10k to 250k as individuals, however they often form syndicates to share risk and experience.

Andrea Cropley, Partner and Head of Corporate in the North at Irwin Mitchell, said:

Barbara Greaves, Manager at Envestors North (YABA) said: Our corporate specialist partners are chosen for their support and active involvement in the entrepreneur and investor markets and we are delighted to be working closely with Irwin Mitchell.”
