Cheryl Palmer-Hughes

Senior Associate Solicitor
  • +44(0)161 838 3111


I am a solicitor in Irwin Mitchell's International Personal Injury department. I act for clients who have been injured in incidents abroad – while on holiday, working abroad, travelling by coach, car or sea, or undergoing surgery abroad, for example. 

I deal with high value claims including brain and spinal injuries, multiple fractures, psychological trauma and fatal accidents and clinical negligence cases. 

I also specialise in claims arising as a result of clinical negligence during cosmetic surgery abroad.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I became a personal injury lawyer because I wanted to help people who had been seriously injured to take action against their opponent. I chose to specialise in international litigation because it is a complex area of law, demanding specialist knowledge in order to assist clients.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is helping my clients access the rehabilitation and compensation they need to get their lives back on track. It is inspirational to witness clients overcoming such traumatic events and being able to move forward.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

At Irwin Mitchell, I have fantastic support from lawyers who are truly experts in their field. We adopt a team approach to many of our cases so that we can draw on each individual's experience and, as a result, our clients have the best advice and service possible, as well as the knowledge that their claim is being dealt with by specialist lawyers.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am fluent in French and enjoy visiting France and Spain. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym, going to the theatre and occasionally baking.
