Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell has boosted its personal injury team with the appointment of a specialist asbestos-related disease Solicitor in the Manchester office.

Having completed a training contract at a previous firm, Megan Christie has now joined Irwin Mitchell, ranked number one for personal injury law in the recent independent Legal 500 guide.

She studied Law at the University of Manchester and abroad at the Melbourne Law School in Australia before completing a Legal Practice Course at the College of Law Manchester.

Megan joins as a Solicitor in the Asbestos Related Disease team in the Manchester office working on mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening claims.

She said: “I’m looking forward to building my expertise within this field and using my determination and skill to achieve justice for the victims of asbestos-related diseases and their families.

“It’s really important, particularly in terminal illness cases that victims have access to the best possible medical treatment, care and equipment, and that any financial worries can be eased to provide peace of mind for both themselves and their families.”

Geraldine Coombs, Partner and Head of the Asbestos Related Disease Team at Irwin Mitchell’s Manchester office said: “We’re delighted Megan is joining us as a Solicitor. Because of the sensitive nature of the work we do representing victims of asbestos-related cancer, it is important we are approachable and caring as well as tenacious in the pursuit of justice for our clients.

“Megan is very passionate about achieving the best results for our clients and I’m sure she will fit in very well with our team.”
