I'm a specialist lawyer in the Asbestos Disease team based in our London office. I represent clients who are suffering from illnesses caused by exposure to asbestos including Mesothelioma, Pleural Thickening and Asbestosis.
What inspired you to get in to law?
I've always wanted to work in law, and specialising in personal injury allows me to do so while helping people.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I've always been passionate about helping people. Including, people who've been injured or become unwell, as a result of an accident or incident but particularly as a result of their working life. I know that with our clients, it’s not always about the money, seeking justice is paramount to them. Helping my clients to seek justice is paramount to me.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I love working for Irwin Mitchell because of the family ethos and their care for their clients, staff and colleagues.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my children, and our family dog.
"Irwin Mitchell were exemplary in the execution of my husband’s claim. I was kept in the loop every step of the way and their professionalism and compassion was way beyond what I expected. My sincere thanks goes to all concerned." - Susan, Client
"Emma was fantastic, she answered all my call and questions efficiently, nothing was to much trouble for her! I'd highly recommend Irwin Mitchell. Thank you to Emma and Ian for everything they’ve done." - Debbie, Client
"The service and compassion my family received from Emma at Irwin Mitchell was outstanding. Emma visited my Dad when he was diagnosed with Mesothelioma (asbestos related lung cancer) and as a family we instructed Irwin Mitchell to pursue a claim.Dad passed away before the claim was settled but it has helped secure Mum’s income going forward after his untimely death (Dad’s pension ended when he died). I would recommend Emma Guy and Irwin Mitchell whole-heartedly." - Alison, Client
"My claim for industrial injury against the Government due to asbestos exposure was fought with Barristers, Doctors and very skilled employees at Irwin Mitchell. Due to the length of time ago it was very hard to research this claim. But they spoke to ex employees who were all getting on in years and with much effort managed to secure a successful outcome." - John, Client
"My brothers and our Mum wish to thank Ian Bailey, Emma Guy and the team for all the hard work carried out in the successful claim for our late father who became ill and past away with this terrible cancer. Emma in particular is very personable, always responded to our questions and kept us updated.
Even though the team had numerous cases being dealt with, our Mum felt she was treated like a human being with Irwin Mitchell unlike the defendants insurance company! We would thoroughly recommend Emma, Ian and team." - Angela, Client
