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.”

Court modernisation: Court Service spins response to NAO report

Roger Smith

After months of debate on the court modernisation programme led by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service, we now have an authoritative analysis from the National Audit Office. HMCTS chief executive Susan Acland-Hood professed herself happy. The report was “helpful and constructive”. She was pleased that “the NAO acknowledges our ‘early progress’”. Her comments were more reflective of spin than the span of the NAO report. The NAO acknowledges the ambitious nature of the reform. But comments like “HMCTS’s change portfolio presents a very significant challenge” need minimal decoding to reveal a bit of concern.
