Ros Ashby



For over 25 years, I have specialised in representing both Claimants and Defendants, either in relation to accidents which occur in the UK involving visitors from overseas or accidents which occur abroad. Such claims frequently involve issues of jurisdiction, applicable law and cross border disputes. 

Since 2013, when I joined Thomas Eggar (who merged with Irwin Mitchell in 2016), I have lead a large team dealing with a wide range of personal injury claims, including noise induced hearing loss, international (particularly for Defendant insurers) and both minor and very serious claims.

The team has been listed in Legal 500 and praised as "a well-established practice advising foreign insurers, particularly on accidents."

What inspired you to get into law?

"Problem solving" has always appealed to me.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

Working collaboratively with experts cross border to find the best possible solution to a client’s matter, often in difficult and sensitive circumstances.

What do you do away from the office?

I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the theatre; travelling and going to art galleries.
