Explains how firms like Irwin Mitchell & Dickie Dees are able to get DLA partners, when normally they wouldn’t look at making such a move.

Will Nigel join Irwin Mitchell? Reply Link Anonymous 22 October 2012 at 22:23 This is curious given the strength and history of the relationship betweem Weighman and Knowles.

So, may make room for associates, but what work do they intend to do! Looks like a decison has already been made by Tony Angel, to start the northern ofice cull. The Irwin link must be Paul Firth, ex DLA Sheffield OMP, now Irwin’s. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
