Irwin Mitchell launches London family team with Kingsley hire

Irwin Mitchell is growing its family law team with the hire of Kingsley Napley partner Elizabeth Hicks.

Hicks joins Irwin Mitchell at the start of May and will head up the firm’s London family practice, expanding it from its current presence in Leeds, Sheffield and Birmingham.

She will be the firm’s fourth dedicated family law partner and its first in the capital.

Irwin Mitchell’s London office has developed a thriving personal injury and commercial practice since its establishment a decade ago, but Hicks’s arrival marks a new stage of its development.
