Above all else, Irwin Mitchell is committed to offering clients an approachable and caring environment while operating on a firm foundation of integrity.

History of the Practice

Irwin Mitchell was founded in 1912 as a general practice firm in Sheffield. Walter Erwin Mitchell opened the practice with the commitment of providing the highest quality general law services to the general public. As the firm grew and expanded, partners were added and offices were opened.

Today Irwin Mitchell boasts more than 100 partners and annual turnover that ranks among the top 25 UK law firms. In August 2012, the firm became the first Alternative Business Structure (ABS) in the UK as well as the first multi-licensed ABS. To date they have assisted more than 1 million clients with their legal needs.
