Two New Recruits Join Expanding Office
Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell today announced its ongoing commitment to growing the firm’s South West presence with the appointment of two solicitors to the Bristol based specialist personal injury team.
As preparations get underway to take more floor space at the firm’s Castlepark office in Tower Hill, Regional Managing Partner Jonathan Peacock announced the arrival of medical law specialist Natalie Jones and solicitor Anusheh Ahmadi, who will be dealing with brain and spinal injuries.
Peacock, said: “It was always our expressed intention to recruit talented solicitors with relevant expertise to enhance our existing team of personal injury and medical law experts when we launched our South West presence last May and I am particularly pleased that we have been able to identify and appoint a number of solicitors from the Bristol and South West area, like Natalie and Anusheh and I hope we can continue to do so.”
Natalie, who joins Irwin Mitchell’s medical law team, from Pardoes solicitors based in Bridgwater, said: “I am delighted to join the team at Irwin Mitchell as the firm has an unprecedented reputation for the quality of its work. I manage a varied case load and have experience working with high value, complex claims.
“Client care is a very important aspect of my role, as my clients have often been through a traumatic experience, and not only need a legal representative, but support and empathy through the process. Irwin Mitchell already has a culture of being very client focused, and I am looking forward to contributing to this culture by supporting my clients whilst providing effective legal representation to recover compensation for their injuries.”
Natalie, was born in Edinburgh, but grew up in the South West and now lives with her husband, David, in Bridgwater in Somerset. She attended Millfield School in Street and completed her A Levels at King Edwards School in Bath before going on to take her Law degree and Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of the West of England in Bristol. Natalie is also an APIL Accredited Litigator.
In her spare time, Natalie is also something of a high flyer as she has taken part in a free fall skydive for charity and completed two bungee jumps. When she is not participating in daring events, Natalie enjoys cooking, eating out, reading and travelling.
Anusheh, who joins Irwin Mitchell’s serious injury team said: “I was delighted to join Irwin Mitchell on qualification. Having wanted to specialise in personal injury, Irwin Mitchell was the obvious choice as one of the leading personal injury firms in the country. I am excited to have the opportunity to develop my career and continue my professional development at Irwin Mitchell where there is real focus on developing their employees.
“I am looking forward to the first hand interaction I will have with my clients and working with them to help secure the best possible outcome for them. I get a real sense of satisfaction and achievement from knowing that I have helped and supported my clients and their families in what is inevitably a difficult and often life changing time.”
Anusheh, who lives in Taunton with her partner Robert attended The Castle School in and, like Natalie, also took her law degree at the University of the West of England, Bristol and her Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the Bristol Institute of Legal Practice.
She is a keen long distance runner and ran the Great North Run in September 2010 for local charity BIBIC who work with brain injured children and their families. She will also be taking part in the Bristol 10k run for the West of England MS Therapy Centre in May. When she is not participating in sponsored runs for charity she enjoys socialising with friends and family and walking her two dogs on the Quantock Hills.
