I am a solicitor based in Irwin Mitchell’s London office, having joined the firm in August 2016. I practice within the Medical Negligence team.
I studied Law at the Queen Mary, University of London before completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law. I qualified as a solicitor in 2010, specialising solely in medical negligence.
I always make sure I am accessible to my clients. I understand the process of making a clinical negligence claim can be very daunting and stressful so I try to take that stress away by ensuring that my clients understand every stage of the claim and are updated regularly.
I focus on securing rehabilitation and resources as soon as possible for my clients where interim funding is available. My role is to ensure I achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.
What inspired you to get into law?
I decided to enter the legal profession because I believe in fighting for justice. Specialising in medical negligence enables me to get the best of both worlds as I am passionate about medicine and the law.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The ability to make a difference to a person's life and help obtain the compensation they deserve.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell is the leading medical negligence firm in the country. We have such a large team with extensive experience which means we can share our knowledge to work together to secure the best outcome for our clients. We have the resources and expertise to give our clients an excellent service.
What do you do away from the office?
I love to travel when I am not working. My aim is to visit as many countries as possible. I also enjoy good food and dining out with friends and family. Additionally I am a Manchester United fan and enjoy watching football matches at Old Trafford.
"I contacted Irwin Mitchell regarding my Father's death relating to an NHS negligence claim. Alisha Puri was very understanding and helpful from outset providing me with a good understanding of the procedure to be undertaken and complete transparency regarding costs. She has been professional at all times and a pleasure to deal with." - 5* Trustpilot review
