Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has appointed another solicitor to its Bristol family law team.

Laura Podger joins from Royds Withy King in Bath, having qualified as a solicitor this year. Laura has previous experience working in corporate and medical negligence law and now handles divorce and family law matters. 

Laura’s previous experience working in a school for children with learning disabilities and having studied modules in child psychology at university provides her with a unique foundation and understanding in cases involving children especially in contested Children Act matters where child arrangements are in dispute. 

Laura joins following the recruitment of solicitor Satya Bagga in September and associate Marjha Golding-Evans earlier this year. The national team has seen rapid growth in the last 12 months following a successful recruitment drive.

The Bristol family law team is one of the top family and divorce law teams in the south west region and is ranked in leading independent legal directories The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners as a top-tier firm in the region.

Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, which has 15 offices across the UK, was also named by eprivateclient as a 2018 top-tier law firm and the only national law firm at the top level. The Lawyer also named Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth as the leading private client litigation firm according to its litigation tracker.

Expert Opinion
“Laura is an excellent addition to the Irwin Mitchell team. Having recently qualified as a solicitor, we’re excited to be attracting new talent like Laura and also Satya who joined a couple of months ago.

“Laura will also work with the national team, which has gone from strength to strength and continues to grow as we recruit some excellent people.

“Bristol has a lot to offer when it comes to family law and the sector is quickly growing. With talented new hires like Laura we’re looking ahead to being at the forefront of the south west region for family law and private client work.”
