WJM welcomes Irwin Mitchell colleagues as Glasgow and Edinburgh offices combine

Irwin Mitchell Scotland staff have moved into Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie’s (WJM) Glasgow and Edinburgh offices following the firm’s strategic investment in WJM last year.

In Glasgow, 13 Irwin Mitchell staff will now be based out of the Grade A office space at St Vincent Plaza in the heart of the city’s IFSD Central Business District.

This follows the recent announcement that newly-appointed Irwin Mitchell Partner Kim Leslie – who brings 24 years’ experience in personal injury law – would lead a team of complex personal injury specialists based out of WJM’s St Andrew Square office.

Fraser Gillies, Managing Partner at WJM, said: “The combining of our firms has significantly increased the geographical spread of the skill and expertise we can offer our clients.

“We are excited to welcome our Irwin Mitchell colleagues to our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices which will facilitate an even better and joined up service for clients across both firms as we continue to seek growth across the UK and internationally.”

Irwin Mitchell Scotland predominantly work in banking and finance and complex personal injury work, while WJM specialises in corporate, private client, property and asset management.

In England and Wales, Irwin Mitchell provides a full suite of legal and financial services which have now been opened up to Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie’s clients.

Mark Higgins, Managing Partner for Irwin Mitchell Scotland, said: “We’re pleased to confirm our move into our new IM Scotland offices, supporting growth in the region.

“Our developing presence in Scotland helps our legal teams build on existing local relationships and networks to support clients in the region, demonstrating our commitment to meeting the needs of clients across the country.”
