Irving specialises in complex financial divorces involving international law and offshore trusts — but he is also ready to fight disputes over family dogs if clients need, as happened recently. Thanks to the firm’s well-respected reputation management department, he often acts for celebrities, politicians and sportspeople. ‘The most rewarding part of our job is representing the underdog and coming out on top,’ he says. Perhaps that’s why he is enjoying a case where he represents a woman who set up — and then sold — a business with her husband. While she was crucial to the development of the business, the husband is arguing that the company grew thanks to his own merits. ‘It’s a long, hard slog to get through it, he says, ‘but they can be pretty rewarding.’
