'One of Yorkshire’s leading family law firms', Irwin Mitchell  has a 'formidable presence in Sheffield'. The 'highly capable' and 'good value for money' team handles the full spectrum of family mattes and has particular expertise representing high-net-worth individuals in financial cases which often incorporate businesses with private equity investment and large property portfolios. Zoe Round and Alison Fernandes have taken over as joint practice heads from 'star practitioner' Martin Loxley who remains at the practice as a consultant and arbitrator. Round is instructed in financial matters and children cases, while Fernandes, who is 'down to earth but disarmingly bright', focuses on financial settlement claims, with a specialism for non-matrimonial, pre-acquired and inherited wealth issues. The 'exceptional' Maisie Huynh was recently promoted to associate and is praised for being 'very prompt, knowledgeable and supportive'.
