Irwin Mitchell rewards Sheffield and Leeds staff with promotions

Irwin Mitchell has promoted dozens of its staff across its offices in Sheffield and Leeds.

Anna Stacey (medical negligence) and Fiona Benoist (IT) from the firm’s Sheffield office have been promoted to partner.

Four senior associates and 19 associates working across Irwin Mitchell’s legal services, financial planning and group services teams have also been promoted.

Across the UK, Irwin Mitchell announced 19 new partners and a total of 75 senior associates and associates. The promotions represent the overall gender split at the firm, with 70% of those promoted being female.

The firm also recently announced that it was adopting a ‘Flexible by Choice’ approach with colleagues free to choose how and when they work subject to the needs of their role and their clients.

Andrew Tucker, group chief executive at Irwin Mitchell, said: “We’re proud of all our promoted colleagues and are pleased to be able to recognise their contribution to the success of Irwin Mitchell both in terms of supporting our clients but also creating the right culture.”

“The promotions show our strength in breadth across both financial and legal services whether acting for businesses or individuals. We’re also delighted to continue to recognise our group services colleagues with several moving up to partner and even more becoming associates. Our business could not be successful without everyone working together in the same direction.

“We’re excited about how all of our leaders can help drive our business strategy and continue to contribute to the long-term growth of Irwin Mitchell.”
