Irwin Mitchell has added to its Private Client Services Team in London with the appointment of partner Sangita Manek. The team describes itself as “the second largest private client team in the country and one of the largest contentious probate teams with 50 lawyers nationwide”.
Sangita has over 25 years’ experience specialising in contentious probate disputes including disputed Wills, breach of trust claims, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975, and administration of estate disputes.
She regularly acts for high-net-worth individuals and represents large estates both in bringing and defending claims on a full range of services from initial pre-action negotiations through to mediation and trial, the firm said.
Commenting on her new role, Sangita said:
“I’m delighted to be joining the Private Client Services team at Irwin Mitchell.
Irwin Mitchell is a successful firm with an incredibly strong reputation. As the largest contentious probate team in the country, Irwin Mitchell is going from strength to strength and I am excited to be a part of that growth. I am, particularly impressed by the firm’s investment in people, both staff and clients and look forward to playing a key role in the growth of its contentious probate team in London.”
Paula Myers, Director of Private Client Legal Services at Irwin Mitchell, said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Sangita to our London office in what marks an exciting time of growth for Irwin Mitchell’s private client team. Sangita has a vast amount of experience in helping clients with a range of contentious probate issues and her joining our London office will mean we can further extend our offering both in London and in the surrounding areas.”
