Emma Bates



I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence Team based in Manchester. I specialise in helping people to recover compensation for injuries which have been suffered as a result of a medical mistake. I also assist clients who have lost family members as a result of negligent treatment, to discover the truth about their treatment.

What inspired you to get into law?

I have always been interested in the law and its evolving nature. When studying for my degree I realised that I wanted to specialise in an area of law that would help individuals, as opposed to businesses. I enjoy working closely with clients to help bring some normalcy back into their lives.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

Although the clients that I meet have been through potentially a very traumatic period in their lives, the compensation that we can help them to recover can help them get back to normal life. The compensation that is recovered provides more than financial security, it can allow them to try new therapies or purchase aids and equipment which can help with independence.

What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is a very client focussed firm and is made up of very approachable like minded individuals, all striving to achieve the best outcome for their clients.

What do you do away from the office?

Outside of work I like to spend time with family and friends but other than that I can be found on a netball court, in the gym or cooking up a new invention in the kitchen.
