I am a solicitor in Irwin Mitchell's International Personal Injury team. I specialise in personal injury claims arising outside of England and Wales, for example, where clients have been injured whilst on holiday or whilst working abroad. I have experience in pursuing claims resulting from a wide range of injuries such as spinal injury, brain injury and fatalities in addition to clinical negligence claims.
I work with individual clients as well as groups and I have been involved in managing a number of group claims resulting from incidents such as the Costa Concordia disaster.
I also specialise in claims arising out of cosmetic surgery abroad.

I chose a career in personal injury law as I wanted to work closely with people who had been seriously injured and help them to make the best possible recovery, not only by obtaining compensation but also by providing care, support and access to rehabilitation.
I chose to specialise in International Personal Injury as it is a complex area of law which is at the cutting edge of the legal sector. The law in this area is constantly evolving and every day in the office is different.
Many of my clients are seriously injured and their claims have been on-going for several years. The most rewarding part is seeing their progress throughout the claim and ultimately achieving the compensation they need in order to get their lives back on track.
Every individual at Irwin Mitchell is treated as part of team and each is recognised for their own skills and expertise. There is a strong support network of leading industry experts within each team and my legal knowledge and expertise expand on a daily basis.
When I am away from my desk I enjoy swimming, going to the gym and the occasional boxing class. I also enjoy travelling and have a keen interest in anything food related!
“We have been working very closely with the driver’s insurance company to help Julie deal with the terrible injuries she suffered and to help her recovery as much as possible.
“Julie’s life has been turned upside down by this terrible accident, as not only did she lose her partner John, she suffered life-changing injuries and the prospect of further surgical procedures and being unlikely to return to her job as an estate agent and translator.
“This tragic accident illustrates the impact road collisions can have on those involved, not only in the immediate aftermath, but in the long-term.
"We will continue to work to secure Julie a settlement that will ensure she continues to access the treatments and rehabilitation she needs so she can continue with her incredible progress.”
“The last 18 months have been extremely difficult for Jane’s family and Khalil and Rojin have been left absolutely heartbroken by their daughter’s death.
“We are currently supporting the Khalaf family as they continue to have a number of unanswered questions concerning how Jane came to ingest ecstasy and whether more could have been done to diagnose the severity of her condition and administer treatment which may ultimately have prevented her death.
“We have begun investigations into the treatment Jane was provided at the St Marien Hospital.
“The family would also like to thank the Coroner for opening an investigation into Jane’s death and are relieved that this process has now finally concluded but sadly their quest for answers still goes on.”
