UK law firm Irwin Mitchell has confirmed the death of its group chief executive Andrew Tucker.
Tucker passed away on 16 August 2023 following an unexpected illness.
He joined the firm in 1985 and became a partner in 1988 and, then, in April 2014, he was appointed group chief executive.
Glyn Barker, chair of the Irwin Mitchell Group, said: “Andrew’s many strengths, including intellect, commerciality and integrity, have ensured that Irwin Mitchell has grown and prospered under his leadership. His legacy is a robust business with a strong culture and widely admired reputation.
“As well as being a hugely respected leader, Andrew was a much-loved colleague, always with the best interests of colleagues and clients at the forefront of his thinking, and we will miss him hugely.
“We’re working to support Andrew’s family at this very sad and difficult time and request that their privacy is respected.”
