He appears for clients in court and in arbitrations, acts for clients in regulatory investigations, and regularly advises clients on contractual issues, statutory and regulatory compliance, law reform and the prevention of disputes. He balances his practice with being a leader of the Russell McVeagh's diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives. Irving is also a mentor to many of Russell McVeagh’s people and has taken a leading role in developing and training its junior lawyers over many years. He also plays a leading role in the firm's technology initiatives and has a strong interest in using technology to improve the way legal services are provided to clients. Irving is quickly becoming a thought leader in financial regulation, and regularly contributes to publications on the topic.
