Irwin Mitchell managing partner Howard Culley has announced that he has decided to retire from the firm – just eight months after being re-elected to the role.
Culley, whose successor will be announced in December, has been the firm’s managing partner for the past 20 years and was at the forefront of a push to take advantage of the Legal Services Act.
Irwin Mitchell senior partner Michael Napier said: “I fully understand Howard’s wish to hand over the managing partner baton and have nothing but praise for his truly magnificent contribution and business acumen, on which we’ll continue to draw as Irwin Mitchell prepares for the opportunities of the new legal services marketplace.”
Culley will relinquish his role at the end of April 2009 and continue as a partner until at least May 2010.
