I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham, and I live in Coventry. I trained with one of the largest law firms in the world and qualified as a solicitor in 2006.
I represent clients in a wide variety of areas, including:
- Stillbirths and neonatal deaths
- Catastrophic injuries
- Brain injuries
- Orthopaedic and spinal injuries
- Gynaecological and obstetric issues
- Urological issues
I'm privileged to be the Instructing Solicitor for the family of Margaret Keane, in their appeal to have an Irish only inscription on their mother’s gravestone in Coventry.
In 2019, I won the Irwin Mitchell Community Spirit Award for the work I do for local charities and the community. The Birmingham Law Society also shortlisted me for a Pro Bono Award at the 2019 Legal Awards, for providing free legal advice clinics at the Birmingham Irish Association.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I've always been intolerant of injustice and so a career in law was always the only option for me.
I started off on the student council at my local secondary school in Coventry and did lots of voluntary work at a local solicitors’ firm when I was a teenager. Now I’m proud to specialise in medical law and patient rights at one of the UK’s top law firms
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I became a lawyer to help people. It is so rewarding being able to help clients move on with their lives and I'm frequently inspired by their bravery.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I’m proud to work with some of the most respected, successful and dedicated lawyers in the country who provide a compassionate and professional service.
In particular, I’m very proud of our values - this is a firm where diversity and inclusion are cherished.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Family time is really precious and we love spending time together on days out, particularly if they incorporate my little boy’s obsession with dinosaurs, Coventry City FC, or my passion for history. I’m also learning to speak Irish in honour of my Irish roots.
I'm proud to be on the Board of Trustees of the Birmingham Irish Association. I am passionate about access to justice and I have managed free legal advice clinics at the Birmingham Irish Association since 2017.
I joined the committee of the West Midlands Irish Business Group in 2020.
Caroline is dedicated to helping those who need advice and support. She has managed free legal advice clinics at the Birmingham Irish Association since 2017 and she joined the Board of Trustees at BIA in 2019. Her dedication and passion to enhance the lives of those around her is infectious and she is a much loved member of our organisation'. - Maurice Malone, CEO of the Birmingham Irish Association
“As a charity we have found Caroline to be a very approachable, professional and thorough individual to work with.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our relationship with her and look forward to building this relationship further in the future.” - Ryan Jackson, Director & Founder of The Lily Mae Foundation
“I cannot fault the service we are experiencing from Irwin Mitchell, Caroline Brogan is such an asset to the company. The case is very sensitive and emotional case, but Caroline has handled every meeting with us with such thoughtfulness, kindness and the upmost sensitivity she has given myself and my family…
…Caroline will go that extra mile to explain every step through our case and nothing is too much trouble even if I have asked her the same question over and over again, Caroline will continue to explain until we all understand. As a family we are so lucky we have been granted Caroline for our case. Thank you for your professionalism and support Caroline.” – 5* Trustpilot review
"My solicitor, Caroline Brogan has been there from the start and still is currently. I find her helpful and instructive if I don't understand what is going on, she's always a phone call away and always gets back to me on any issue. She's always been a friendly ear for the whole process of my case no matter what the issue has been. I have had contact with a few of her colleagues over the years and everyone is polite and helpful as well. I would highly recommend Irwin Mitchell to everyone."- 5* Trustpilot review

I have been in contact with Caroline Brogan and Amy Smith on a medical negligence case for the death of my baby son, they have both kept me updated the whole way through, and made the situation so much less stressful than it already was.
