Irwin Mitchell, which has offices in Leeds and Sheffield, has posted “significant growth” in its turnover and profit in its latest financial results.

For the 2018-19 financial year, turnover for the group was up by 9% to £263.2 million (FY18 £242.8m) with profit rising by 76% to £21.3 million (FY18 £12.1m).

Group Chief Executive Andrew Tucker said the results reflected how all teams across the group were working more closely together than ever before with clients increasingly using more than one service line.

“We have successfully grown turnover for nine consecutive years and that is testament to the hard work and determination of all of our teams to deliver an excellent client service whether that is for businesses or individuals,” said Mr Tucker.

Irwin Mitchell recently opened a new Reading office taking the number of locations in the UK to 15 and is investing in marketing and technology as the firm seeks to grow further.

At the start of 2019 several non-lawyer directors from IT, HR, marketing and operations were also added to the executive board.

This year the firm promoted eight people to partner with 90 associate and senior associate promotions.

Its gender pay gap was amongst the best in the industry and 43% of partners are now female.
