Kate Major



I am a solicitor based in the Medical Negligence team in London, specialising in clinical negligence claims on behalf of patients and their families. I deal with a wide range of claims, including:

  • Orthopaedic cases
  • Fatal cases
  • Birth trauma
  • Delay in the diagnosis of cancer
  • Gynaecological cases
  • Children who have suffered injuries at birth

I qualified as a solicitor in 2006, joining Irwin Mitchell in September 2009. I manage my own varied caseload, whilst also assisting members of the team with complex and high-value claims, often involving birth injury such as cerebral palsy.

I understand that the clinical negligence procedure can seem daunting and complex to clients and their families, so I always make sure that my clients understand every step of the process as their claim progresses.

I studied Law at Sheffield Hallam University and completed my postgraduate studies at Inns of Court School of Law in London. I worked as a Paralegal dealing with personal injury claims, before completing two years training with Russell-Cooke Solicitors in London, where I gained extensive experience in the clinical negligence department.

When I am not at work, I enjoy playing netball.
