Alexandra Fordham

Legal Executive


I am a Chartered Legal Executive in the Southampton office. I have worked in the field of personal injury law since 1997 and have specialised in noise induced hearing loss since 2007.

Before the merger with Irwin Mitchell, I was involved in the development of the Noise Induced Hearing Loss Department at Thomas Eggar, Southampton, to include supervision and training of junior members of the team.

I possess a sound knowledge of the subject matter and am a pro-active and crucially organised lawyer.

What inspired you to get into law?

I studied a maritime degree at Solent University which included pathways of environment law and energy resource law. Having completed my degree I worked for a number of Legal 500 firms in Southampton area whilst continuing to study to become a Chartered Legal Executive at the same time.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I am an experienced lawyer in the complex nature and varied arguments that are associated with claims where clients have damaged their hearing having worked in heavy industry.

What do you do away from the office?

I enjoy horses, cooking, shooting, car clubs and socialising.
