Clarke Willmott Adds Experienced New Partner to Birmingham Office

Birmingham law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has announced the recruitment of new partner John Irving, formerly a commercial partner at Sydney Mitchell.

John joined Sydney Mitchell in 2009 and has been largely credited with building the firm’s commercial offering to the point of being shortlisted as Corporate Team of the Year by Birmingham Law Society in 2016.

John said: “I am very excited to have the opportunity presented by my move. Clarke Willmott has a first class, national reputation and gives me an excellent platform from which to expand my national and international commercial work.

“The breadth of other expertise on which I and my clients will now be able to call is extremely impressive.”

Simon Thomas, Managing Director and Head of Clarke Willmott’s Corporate team, said: “Clarke Willmott already has a strong M&A offering but John’s appointment gives us a very experienced and well regarded operator in the commercial contracting sector.

“His background in manufacturing, trading and service supply arrangements nationally and internationally is exceptional and both broadens and strengthens the services we can offer to our clients.

“We are excited by the potential of his arrival.”

John Irving will be based in the Edmund Street, Birmingham office of Clarke Willmott.

Clarke Willmott LLP is a national law firm with seven offices across the country, including Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
