I joined Irwin Mitchell in 1990 and became a partner in the personal injury department in 1994.
I have a special interest in asbestos related disease cases, particularly mesothelioma. I've written and lectured widely on the subject of asbestos disease and personal injury litigation.
I represented June Hancock in the Armley environmental asbestos case and also achieved what was at the time the highest award for an industrial disease/fatal injury case of £4.37m.
To help others in need and to make a significant difference to their lives.
I enjoy spending time with my family, supporting local charities, eating out and walking my dog.

“We are regularly contacted by workers who have become ill because of the failings in their employer’s commitment to health and safety in the workplace, or by bereaved people who have lost a loved one at work whose lives have been devastated as a result.
“The issue of health and safety in the workplace is a crucially important one for both employers and employees. Good health and safety practices are good for business but the issue of workplace health and safety has to be given very serious consideration by all interested parties.
“At Irwin Mitchell we have previously called for a move away from inaccurate, irresponsible ‘health and safety gone mad’ stories before and we repeat that call today. Attention should also be given to addressing the problem of unscrupulous employers failing to comply with the legal requirement to take out employer’s liability insurance.”
“Mesothelioma is an extremely aggressive, and sadly incurable, form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust. It is responsible for the deaths of more than 2,500 people in the UK every year.
“We are investigating Peter’s exposure during his time working on the Sheffield Arts Tower project and hope that anyone who worked on the premises during 1964 and 1965 will come forward with any information about the presence of asbestos and what measures were in place to protect workers from exposure to the harmful dust and fibres.
“We hope to give Pamela and her sons the answers they deserve.”
