IM LLP Logo 2015A specialist real estate lawyer at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office has got on his bike to help retailer Dobbies Garden Centres celebrate its 150th anniversary, while also raising vital funds for charity.

David Goy, an associate solicitor at Irwin Mitchell, joined staff from Dobbies on 18 June for the 114-mile Chesterfield to Northallerton leg of its mammoth 2,000-mile charity bike challenge running across the UK.

Starting in Edinburgh on 8 June, the event has seen relay teams travel to each of Dobbies’ 35 stores with the intention of travelling back to the store in Edinburgh by 20 June.

The event is to raise money for 21 local and national charities, including the company’s property team charity partner The Wildlife Trust.

Irwin Mitchell has enjoyed a long relationship with Dobbies Garden Centres, with its specialist real estate team providing support to the retailer on a range of its key property deals.

David Goy of Irwin Mitchell said:

“Dobbies’ 150th anniversary is a great testament to the strength and heritage of the business. While the 114-mile ride was undoubtedly tough, we are delighted to have lent a hand to their celebrations and raised vital funds for charity in the process.

“Irwin Mitchell is very proud to have a long-term relationship with Dobbies and we hope we can continue to help them develop for many years to come.”

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
