In a coup for the North West’s law sector, Irwin Mitchell Operations Director, Richard Clark, has joined independent campaigning firm, berg, as Managing Director.
A strategic business leader focused on developing client focused businesses from the ground up, Richard has been building and leading businesses for a number of years most recently at Irwin Mitchell LLP and turned down another offer from the capital to make the move across the Pennines.
He is a specialist in operations management, business strategy and organisational development, along with programme management. His academic achievements include an MBA from the Bradford University School of Management, a post-graduate Diploma and Certificate in Management from the Henley Business School. Richard is also a member of the Chartered Management Institute.
Richard said: “I know I am joining a Firm which has serious ambition for significant growth.
The senior team at berg have made the Firm renowned for its championing and campaigning for the interests of independent business”.
I want to now contribute to being part of a truly modern professional services law firm recognised for sound and imaginative advice.” berg’s Senior Partner, Reuben Berg commented: “This appointment is a clear demonstration of our intent to be a leading professional services Firm looking after the interests of independent business”.
“Our way of doing business, like many successful industries in the past which came from the North West is founded on integrity, resolve, hard work and the constant desire to get the best for our clients.”
The appointment comes at a pivotal time for the firm as it was also confirmed this week that Managing Partner, Alison Loveday, who has led the firm’s expertise and international profile in challenging banking mis-conduct, moves into her new role as Chief Executive Officer.
