Alexandra Lausen

Other Legal Expert

Biography

As a paralegal, I assist with a wide variety of cases involving negligently performed surgery, delayed diagnosis of cancer and meningitis, orthopaedic injuries, neurological conditions, birth injuries and gynaecological problems.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I chose a career in law having really enjoyed acting as a volunteer advocate for an adult with learning difficulties and for a student on the Child Protection Plan through my role as a Learning Support Worker. A career in law provides a great balance of work which is both intellectually stimulating and incredibly rewarding. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Working within the Medical Law and Patients' Rights team involves a considerable amount of client contact. I am mainly involved in the early stages of a claim and so enjoy being the initial point of contact for clients and then guiding them through the necessary steps until it is time to issue their claim at court. 

Many of our clients are dealing with the devastating consequences of medical negligence and it is very rewarding to know that the work we are doing is helping to make their lives slightly easier. The compensation which we are fighting for is incredibly valuable to clients who require future treatment, care or rehabilitation. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Everyone at Irwin Mitchell is committed to doing the very best for our clients and there is a positive ethos in the office to continually improve the service which we offer. My motivation to work within the personal legal services sector was inspired by the desire to really make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people who require practical guidance and assistance and Irwin Mitchell is the ideal law firm in which to fulfil that ambition.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Playing sport is a key passion of mine and I particularly enjoy playing netball, badminton and going to the gym. I love socialising with my friends and spending time with my fiancé and family. I am a bit of a foodie and enjoy going to the variety of restaurants which Bristol has to offer and trying out new recipes at home. Having recently travelled around South East Asia, I am also keen to discover more of the world when time and money will allow!
