Clare Pearson



I am an Associate in the International Personal Injury team specialising in group action work as well as dealing with highly complex individual matters. I deal with claims from the first point of contact through to conclusion. Over my 15 years with Irwin Mitchell I have worked on some of the largest group action claims against tour operators, securing millions of pounds worth of compensation for people who have suffered illness and whose holidays have been spoilt.

I have a proven track record at trial and have worked on ground breaking cases including the case of Eldridge and Others, which resulted in a judgment against a large UK tour operator when our clients became ill after holidays in Majorca.

I've dealt with a number of complex legionnaires cases where people have been left with significant injuries and have also experience in dealing with fatal accident claims. I have dealt with a wide variety of cases where people have suffered injury after an accident abroad.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I chose a career in law because I have always had a strong sense of justice and really wanted the opportunity to work with people on a day to day basis.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role? 

I am passionate about helping clients get the best possible result and I love the thrill of a successful negotiation and the team approach that is taken to the work I do.  

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I love the diversity that IM offers and the passion and empathy that is instilled in the team that work for IM. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love live music events and any opportunity to have a dance. I enjoy camping and walking. I also enjoy theatre and comedy and am an avid reader that can often be found with my head buried in a crime thriller.
