Irwin Mitchell has been a proud sponsor of the LBCambridge programme since inception. The feedback over the years from our home team of lawyers and our guest delegates has never been anything but excellent.
As a firm, we have invested in strategically developing a programme dedicated to the “in-house” community. Our sponsorship of LBCambridge is part of a programme that also comprises quarterly General Counsel lunches and quarterly seminars/networking events aimed at junior in-house counsel. Should you wish to register your interest in attending one of our future events please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will provide you with further information.
