The Birmingham office of Irwin Mitchell has appointed an experienced family law partner to its market-leading team in the West Midlands.

Clare Wiseman has joined Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham team from George Green Solicitors where she represented a number of families at the top of their field in sport as well as developing expertise in advising police officers on family law and divorce issues.

She was named as a leading individual in the Chambers UK 2015 guide to law and is a member of the Law Society Family Law Panel, vice-chair of Resolution West Midlands and a qualified collaborative lawyer.

The Legal 500 independent guide to law ranks Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham Family Law team as number one in the region. The firm has recently taken two high profile divorce cases to the Supreme Court on behalf of wives challenging ‘unfair’ divorce settlements.

Nicola Walker, partner and head of the family law team at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office said: “Clare has 20 years’ experience in advising clients going through divorce or experiencing family law issues and her skills will be a great asset for our team as we seek to help more people across the West Midlands.”

Clare added: “I’m thrilled to be joining Irwin Mitchell as we share the same values of putting the clients’ needs first and offering a bespoke and approachable service to people often going through a very tough time. Being able to help them make progress in their lives makes the job worthwhile and with the backing of Irwin Mitchell’s strong national team and resources I’m looking forward to getting started.”

His answer, surprisingly, was claims management companies.
