IM LLP Logo 2015The Southampton office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell has revealed its delight after its personal injury experts have been recognised in the Legal 500 UK 2015 Awards.

The office has beaten off national competition across both commercial and personal legal services sectors to be named the winner of the Insurance (Regional) category in the awards.

The Legal 500 conducted thousands of interviews with law firms, barristers and in-house counsel in the UK to pinpoint the most capable, expert firms operating at the top of their game across a number of different areas.

The awards are unique in the legal industry as they recognise each element of the profession equally, representing the very best chambers, silks, law firms and in-house lawyers operating in the UK market.

The achievement is all the more remarkable coming a mere 12 months after Irwin Mitchell opened its Southampton Office in 2014.

Guy Darlaston, regional managing partner of Irwin Mitchell’s Southampton office, said: “We are incredibly delighted and proud to have received this recognition from the prestigious international legal directory, The Legal 500.

“It is a fantastic achievement and even more so when you consider that the office opened a little more than a year ago. In that time we have worked hard to recruit the very best lawyers to ensure that the office provides the leading legal expertise expected of Irwin Mitchell.  We are delighted to offer that service to our clients throughout the region.

“We have achieved a great deal in 12 months.  The prospects for the future of Irwin Mitchell across the South East are very exciting.”

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
