Awards hope

Leading Sheffield lawyer Martin Loxley has been shortlisted as Partner of the Year at the prestigious national Family Law Awards.

Martin has been a partner in Sheffield for more than 30 years and has led Irwin Mitchell’s family law team for two decades.

He also oversees the firm’s wills, trust and estates disputes team, which helps people with probate issues or who wish to contest wills, and often handles divorces for clients with complex financial arrangements and international elements. He is also a qualified Arbitrator.

Martin said: “I’m proud to be short-listed for this award. The nature of my work means that you are often helping people through a difficult period in their lives, but it is incredibly rewarding when youee them come out stronger on the other side.

The national Family Law Awards ceremony will be held on October 8 in London.
