Leena Savjani

Senior Associate

Biography

I am a Senior Associate specialising in medical negligence claims. This is an area I have specialised in exclusively since qualification. I was previously based at Irwin Mitchell's Manchester office (2006 – 2012) and now work in our London office. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

It was always a toss between journalism or law, and law won! I remember reading Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" at school and feeling very inspired by one of the central characters Atticus Finch. I made my mind up at a very young age and have stuck to my decision since!

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Most of my clients have suffered from a serious injury or have lost a loved one due to a medical accident.  The most rewarding aspect of my job is undoubtedly finding answers for these clients and making a positive difference to their lives. Litigation is a daunting prospect for most people and providing my clients with guidance and support through this difficult process is very important to me. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I trained and qualified at Irwin Mitchell and have been with the firm since. Irwin Mitchell is a leader in many specialist areas of law and the service, knowledge and skills offered to clients is second to none.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

In my spare time I like to fit in as much exercise as possible - I enjoy running (mainly 10Ks) and I am also a fan of Bikram Yoga! My favourite holiday destination is Las Vegas and I've been four times so far (and counting!).

    “The last 15 years have been incredibly difficult for RY who has endured countless surgeries, delays in physical development and frustration at not being able to match his peers in their physical abilities. It has also been an immense struggle for his family who have seen him struggle and lose confidence as a result of the injury he sustained through medical errors. “This settlement will now provide RY with the ability to fund any support or rehabilitative treatment he requires to live a full and happy life as independently as possible. “It is important that the NHS Trust continues to learn from the mistakes made and improve its practices to ensure that no other family will have to endure what RY and his family have been through.”

    Parents Call For Lessons To Be Learned After Gifted Son Died Following Asthma Attack Days After They Begged Hospital Staff Not To Discharge Him

    “Michael’s death has left a gaping hole in the lives of his parents, sisters, friends and those who knew him through his extraordinary talent and passion for chess. “It is clear through my involvement with Ayelet and Roy that Michael was an exceptionally gifted child, treasured by those who knew him. “While nothing can change what has happened to Michael, it is disappointing to hear that there were numerous missed opportunities to treat him in the months before he died and we hope that lessons can be learned from his tragic death so that no one else suffers as he did and that no parent suffers the same indescribable loss as Roy and Ayelet continue to feel today.”

    Inquest Into Death Of Gifted Boy Who Died Days After Parents Begged Hospital Not To Discharge Him

    “Michael’s death has left a gaping hole in the lives of his parents, sisters, friends and those who knew him through his extraordinary talent and passion for chess. “While nothing can change what has happened to Michael, we hope the inquest into his death will shed some light on the standard of care he received in the months before his death from GPs, private doctors and staff at The Royal Free Hospital. “It is incredibly important that if anything could have been done to prevent Michael’s death, those involved in his care learn from it so that no one else suffers as he did and that no parent suffers the same indescribable loss as Roy and Ayelet continue to feel today.”
