A law firm in Leeds has been named a tier 1 law firm in the 2018 eprivateclient Top Law Firms rankings.
The rankings, which are highly regarded in the private client sector, named just 12 law firms as top tier. They also revealed that Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth had the most solicitors out of all top ranked firms as well as the second-highest amount of partners. Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is also the only national law firm to have been listed in the top tier.
Irwin Mitchell’s Private Wealth division has seen substantial growth in recent months with development of its key leadership roles, such as Nick Rucker and Jeremy Raj being named National Heads of Tax, Trusts and Estates and Residential Property respectively. The leading law firm also named National Head of Family, Ros Bever, as Regional Managing Partner for its Manchester office last week.
Craig Marshall, CEO of Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, said: “I am delighted to see that Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has been recognised by eprivateclient as a top tier law firm. We’ve gone from strength to strength since our launch in early 2016 and it has been made possible by the hard work, commitment and passion demonstrated at all levels.
“The fact that we’re one of the biggest private client law firms is testament to the hard work of our people and a targeted recruitment drive across the country, which has seen us bring in talented lawyers who really understand our approach to clients and working together as a team across all aspects of Private Wealth.
“I’m very proud of everyone here at Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth who has contributed towards making it such a success, and know that the years ahead will hold more of the same diligence and dedication from the Private Wealth team.”
