North West Property Lawyer of the Year - Which Lawyer? 2013
It’s an honour to be able to provide this donation to a truly fantastic cause in our local community.
Last year we celebrated 20 years of the IMCF and I am delighted that thanks to the creativity and generosity of Irwin Mitchell employees, we made our anniversary year a record breaking one for us.
Everyone at Irwin Mitchell is passionate about giving back to the communities we operate in and making a real difference to the lives of those supported through our Charities of the Year programme.
We are incredibly proud of what we achieved last year. Hearing how Mustard Tree could use the donation, and the positive impact that will have on those in poverty or dealing with homelessness in the region, is spurring on our staff to think of bigger and better ways to fundraise for this year’s good cause.
“We are extremely excited and look forward to what will be a transformational move for Irwin Mitchell in Manchester.
“One St Peter’s Square is a superb building and this move represents a significant milestone and clearly demonstrates our commitment to our people, our clients and the city.
“We considered a number of properties across the city and decided that One St Peter’s Square’s location, particularly its proximity to the city’s main transport links, offered Irwin Mitchell with the best option.”
“The Charity of the Year initiative has been a fundamental part of our efforts to actively support the local communities where we are based for many years and we are proud to have helped a number of incredible causes along the way.
“Animals in Distress is a fantastic cause and we are already hard at work planning out the range of events which will be held across the year to raise vital funds to support the incredible work it does.”
“While general growth in employment and Manchester’s economy in recent months has been modest, this new report shows how it has an education sector which is absolutely thriving.
“With all of the plans in place to develop this area in the coming years, it is likely to be a sector which is on the rise for many years to come.”
