Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has announced that Jeremy Raj has been appointed to the newly created role of National Head of Residential Property for the leading law firm.
Jeremy, who joined IMPW in September as Head of London Residential Property, was previously at Wedlake Bell where he was head of the residential team from 2006 to 2013. He was also an elected board member and one of four practice group leaders with responsibility for the private client, immigration, family and residential property teams. Jeremy regularly handles high-value portfolio acquisitions and residential investments, as well as having strong experience with overseas investors and in high-end London residential property.
Jeremy’s promotion is the latest in a string of national appointments for Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, which is one of the largest private client teams in the country. Earlier this year Ros Bever was named National Head of Family and Nick Rucker as National Head of Tax, Trusts and Estates. The three join Paula Myers as National Head of Will, Trust and Estate Disputes to complete the four areas that Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth encompasses, reporting to Craig Marshall who is Chief Executive of Personal Legal Services at Irwin Mitchell.
Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has seen multiple high-calibre partner hires over the last year across all four of its departments, most recently James Laycock and Claire-Marie Cornford who both joined the Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team in Leeds and London respectively.
Jeremy said: “I am delighted to have accepted the position of National Head of Residential Property. It’s an exciting time both for the firm and for the wider property market with housing at the top of the government’s agenda, as well as a great time of growth for Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth.
“I’m looking forward to expanding the team and creating a centre of excellence for all things residential property that is renowned across the UK and internationally. Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is going from strength to strength, and I’m confident we’ll be able to build on the superb existing foundations the team already has.”
Craig Marshall, Chief Executive of Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, commented: “Jeremy has previously demonstrated a great track record for delivering results and has hit the ground running since joining the firm, forming strong links with our Corporate and Real Estate teams as well as the Private Wealth teams.
“His appointment will ensure that the residential property department grows in strength and depth across our offices and reflects the firm’s ambition to become a leading private client team.
“This latest promotion now also means that there are national heads for each of the four areas that make up Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth – a structure that reflects our dedication to having inspiring and driven leaders across the UK. Combining the high-quality of our lawyers with a strong understanding of what our clients truly value is how we will grow Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth over the coming years.”
