Hilary Wetherell



I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2000 and became a Partner in the Serious Injury team in Birmingham in 2011. I specialise in high value personal injury claims, particularly those involving brain injury. I have a particular interest in the role of the clinical case manager within litigation and I design and deliver training to case managers across the country.

I am actively involved in fundraising for Headway West Midlands.

I am a senior litigator accredited member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

In my spare time I enjoy reading and singing with the City of Birmingham Choir.
