Jatinder Paul

Associate Solicitor

Biography

I am an Associate Solicitor in the market-leading International Personal Injury team in Birmingham. I have particular experience in group claims and cross border disputes. I manage a team which primarily deals with group actions against UK based tour operators, or single party actions against defendants in foreign countries (often working with foreign lawyers).

I also handle claims which involve illness outbreaks on cruise vessels and outbreaks of illnesses such as E-Coli and Salmonella.

My recent cases include the fatal outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in Stoke-on-Trent in 2012 and numerous illness outbreaks in hotels across the world and on cruise vessels.

I frequently appear in the press commenting on this field and I have been quoted in the Daily Mail, The Sun, The Times and The Daily Mirror. I have also been interviewed by the BBC, ITV and Sky News.

In 2016 I was named as the Young Professional of the Year at the Signature Awards in Birmingham. The Signature Awards celebrates the work of Asian professionals working in a range of industries including banking, accountancy and law.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted to do something that was both challenging and rewarding, and I work in an area of the law that incorporates both of these aspects. It’s great that my work has the potential to change people’s lives on a daily basis.
