I am a Solicitor in the medical negligence team, based in Irwin Mitchell’s London office. I joined the firm in 2019.
I studied Law at the University of Kent, before completing the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Guildford.
I have my own caseload of medical law claims including cancer cases (relating to delay in diagnosis, misdiagnosis and negligent treatment) and cases involving clients who have become injured due to surgical error. I represent mothers who have sustained injuries following child birth and families who've been bereaved as a result of substandard medical practice.
I also have a special interest in cosmetic surgery claims, regularly advising on the outcome of surgeries including: breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, liposuction and abdominoplasty surgeries.
I strive to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients, with an emphasis on keeping them fully informed throughout the litigation process.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Knowing that I have helped support my clients through difficult times in their lives and helped them to secure the funding that they need to pay for future care and treatment.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy working at Irwin Mitchell because I'm part of a supportive team. Our main focus is achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.
What do you do away from the office?
I'm a mother of my daughter and two crazy dogs! Outside of work I enjoy dancing, travelling to different countries, and spending time with my family and friends.

"My team at Irwin Mitchell worked really hard on my Personal Injury claim. Both Gemma and Niv managed to secure me a great settlement for my claim without going to court. Communication was always prompt and if ever I was in any confusion over legal terms they were always well explained.
Both Gemma and Niv were very sympathetic and understanding about what I had been through with my case which made a very difficult experience much easier for me. Gemma began my case and was very organised and clear about what I should expect from the process and always got back to my queries very promptly, reassuring me and supporting me through a very difficult time in my life... Thank you again Gemma and Niv for all your hard work." - 5* Trustpilot review
