Irwin Mitchell is a nationally-acclaimed law firm offering a broad range of legal services to national and international organisations, small and medium-sized businesses and private individuals.
We act for clients who expect a fast moving, commercial approach with a ‘can-do’ problem-solving attitude. Relationships are key to everything we do and we pride ourselves on building long-term partnerships with our clients. The recent merger with Thomas Eggar has expanded the firm’s offering to include safeguarding our clients’ wealth as well as their business interests.
Specialist teams and unrivalled expertise
At Irwin Mitchell we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why our divisions are divided into specialist teams made up of lawyers with expertise not only in the relevant area of law but also in the business sector in which our clients operate including technology and media, banking and finance, sport and leisure, retail and manufacturing.
Our teams are led by partners who are leaders in their field and include specialist experts in niche areas to ensure our clients experience the best possible levels of service. Our solicitors are well-connected and have real insight into regional differences – experience that they then bring to bear on a national level.
Economies of scale
With a network of offices nationwide, we are able to leverage our national structure to create a depth of resource and cost efficiencies that are passed on to you.
