I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Serious Injury team. I proactively manage a varied caseload of complex, high value cases to settlement. I am client focused and use my interpersonal skills to build effective working relationships with clients, colleagues and other professionals.
My main objective is to ensure that my clients have the best treatment and rehabilitation available to them in order to improve their chances of returning to a fulfilling life. I achieve this by looking at various issues including care, therapies, treatment, equipment, housing, transport and employment and ensure that all of my client’s needs are considered in respect of each of these issues.
The biggest case I have settled is for £17 million. In every case I endeavour to maximise my client's rehabilitation potential in order to ensure they get the best quality of life.

Hema "is incredibly hard-working and committed to her clients. She is operating at the highest level, representing clients in multi-million pound, complex cases." – Legal 500, 2020
"I have nothing but praise. She took time to get to know each of us which put us both at ease at what was a very tense and vulnerable time. Hema made sure that all of my fears and misunderstandings were dealt with in a professional yet very personal way. She was with us from the beginning up to the recovery of damages. I would thoroughly recommend this reputable company and especially the service above and beyond from Hema Rana." – Carole Mattison, client's mother
"Her compassion, obvious care for her clients' best interests, and the commitment she provided throughout the six years, were unwavering. She was always approachable, and regardless of how busy she was, eager to explain anything we were unsure about. I can honestly state we were very fortunate that she picked up our case, because I don't believe anyone could have worked harder and reached the outcome that she did. I know she fought our case above and beyond what was expected and my daughter and I are truly grateful. I would definitely recommend this law firm and highly recommend Hema Rana." – Deborah Moran-Sugden, client
"Five stars... her work was faultless" – Paul Wood, client
"Would like to say how both myself and my brothers case over the last 4 and half years was handled so very professionally by Hema and her assistant Beth. Nothing was too much trouble and throughout the whole complex case everything was explained in a way that meant we both understood what was going on at every juncture..." – Glen, client (read full 5* review on Trustpilot)

"An excellent outcome to our case which is thanks to the diligent and through approach of Hema Rana and her team. Not only was the service provided professional. Hema, was also compassionate, caring and patient, explaining the process at every stage. She was approachable and always happy to make herself available to her client and his family, answering questions, not just about the litigation process.
"Amazing, there’s no better team! Bethany Greenwood and Hema Rana are truly exceptional." - 5* Trustpilot review
Hema was also able to draw on her considerable experience in dealing with traumatic brain injury and offer advice on where to obtain help and support. We cannot recommend her and her team at Irwin Mitchell highly enough. They helped us through a traumatic time in our family’s life and gave us an outcome that will help us long into the future." - 5* Trustpilot review
