Sharon Williams



I am a solicitor based in the Manchester office and I assist Lindsay Wise, head of the Manchester Medical Negligence team as well as running my own varied clinical negligence case load.

I deal with a wide variety of different clinical negligence claims including neurological injuries, obstetric and gynaecological injuries, amputation, delays in the diagnosis of cancer and fatal claims. I also represent bereaved families at inquest.

I have a particular interest in representing clients who have suffered injury as a consequence of negligent cosmetic surgery. I regularly advise on issues such as substandard breast surgery, adverse outcomes following dermal fillers and other treatments routinely seen within this area.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

When I was young, I wanted to become a doctor, in particular I always believed that I would be a neurosurgeon.  Around the age of 15, I became squeamish and decided that I wouldn't be suited to medicine. I'd always had an interest in the law, and did some work experience in a high street personal injury firm. I quickly became involved in clinical negligence cases there, and I really enjoyed the work, so embarked upon a law degree with the aim of becoming a solicitor.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I like helping people and try to go the extra mile to get the best outcome for clients. I feel very rewarded when I look back at a case and see how a client's quality of life has improved as a consequence of my help. 

I also get great satisfaction from putting together all of the pieces of the case, like a puzzle, and working through it to get the answers that a client deserves. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is a very friendly firm.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking (although I am not necessarily very good at it) and DIY.

    Father-of-Four Given Year To Live, Six Months After Receiving The All Clear

    “Stephen went through one of the toughest experiences someone can go through when fighting bowel cancer, and with the good news he received in February, he thought he could move on from that period of his life. “Instead of now enjoying spending time with Irene, their four adult children and six grandchildren, he is now left fighting cancer once again. “We are investigating the care he received to try and establish why he was not seen within the four months specified at his five-year review and what impact this has had on the timeliness of his diagnosis. The consequences of delaying cancer treatment can be devastating and it is important that if there are any lessons to be learned they are identified as soon as possible.”
