Libby Ferrier

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor in the Clinical Negligence team in Irwin Mitchell's London office.

I have been working in injury law since 2010 and before joining Irwin Mitchell I worked as a paralegal at a specialist litigation firm assisting solicitors with personal injury cases for clients who had sustained catastrophic brain and spinal injuries.

I joined the Clinical Negligence department at Irwin Mitchell in August 2014 and qualified as a solicitor in 2017. I manage my own cases and also assist the senior solicitors in my team with complex and high value cases.

I have gained experience working on a wide range of medical negligence cases including claims involving spinal injuries, birth injuries, wrongful birth, oncology, orthopaedic, surgery, cardiology, mental health and fatal cases.

I have a particular interest in claims involving brain injuries in adults and children, issues concerning anaesthesia and maternal/fetal injuries which have arisen from pregnancy and birth.

What inspired you to get into law?

I was drawn to law because each working day is different and you are always being presented with new challenges. I chose to work in medical negligence because it is people-focused and every case and client is unique and engaging. We are able to assist clients who have experienced injury in a practical way that can have a real impact on their lives.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I enjoy working closely with clients to build their legal case and the satisfaction of achieving a good outcome on their behalf. Our clients often come to us at very difficult times in their lives and it is rewarding to know that you have been part of securing a successful result which will allow a client to take steps towards rebuilding their life after they have suffered injury and loss which could have been avoided.

What do you do away from the office?

Outside of work I enjoy reading, music, watching a good box set, spending time with friends and family and trying to train my dog to stop destroying everything I own.
