Amandeep Dhillon

Partner

Biography

I specialise in both international and domestic group illness claims, accidents abroad which involve foreign laws and jurisdictions, and incidents at sea and in air.  I have successfully acted for thousands of people in this regard, and have a great passion for seeking justice which has been translated with many rewarding results.

I have secured damages for passengers aboard the ill fated Costa Concordia vessel, and for people affected by the fatal Grand Hotel Italy outbreak.  My experience also extends to high profile domestic cases such as the tragic Stoke Legionnaires case, and the highly publicised salmonella outbreak at the Newcastle Spice Festival.

I take great pride in securing exceptional settlements for my clients in sometimes challenging circumstances, and great reward from helping them secure justice.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I was inspired to take up a career in law as I have a keen sense of justice and a background in social justice.  My mother has been awarded an OBE for her work in this area, and whilst my familial leanings are more political, I seek to promote fairness and justice on behalf of those wronged in a legal sense, particularly consumers.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is securing justice in challenging evidential circumstances, and helping secure redress for these clients.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is committed to providing exceptional support for our clients, whilst fighting on their behalf with great tenacity.  Compassion and resilience are two of my own core characteristics which make the firm and I an ideal match!

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy playing sports and reading, particularly historical pieces.
