I'm a solicitor in the Clinical Negligence team in our London office.
I joined the team in August 2014 and qualified as a solicitor in 2017. I work for clients who have sustained a range of injuries as a result of negligent care. These include brain injuries, spinal injuries, birth injuries, injuries to vision, delays in cancer diagnoses, orthopaedic injuries and issues arising from surgery. I have a particular interest in cases involving brain injuries (in both adults and children) and 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 while we can't undo the harm which has been done to them, it's rewarding to be able to secure a successful outcome which will allow them to take steps towards rebuilding their life after they've suffered injury and loss.
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.
"Our contact at Irwin Mitchell had dealt with our daughter throughout and treated her, and later us, with great care and compassion. Some 5 months after our daughter's passing she was able to agree mediation and effect a payment, although unfortunately no admission of fault. We will be passing the monies to the hospice that cared for our daughter, and us, during the last stages of her cancer." - 5* Trustpilot review
"My experience of Irwin Mitchell during my Medical Negligence claim has been excellent, they could not have been more helpful and professional in dealing with the case. Libby Ferrier our solicitor could not have done more. In fact she worked above and beyond her remit in bringing my case to successful conclusion. At all times she explained everything carefully in a clear and non technical manner.
I would like Libby to be congratulated on the way she managed my case, the dedication to her work, kindness and understanding when dealing with information in private reports. I would certainly be pleased to have Libby's help again if ever it was required. Well done Libby and Irwin Mitchell." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I can’t thank Richard Kayser, Libby Ferrier and the rest of the team enough for how brilliantly they handled my wife’s medical negligence case. I instructed Irwin Mitchell to investigate my wife’s care under Barts Health NHS Trust. I am incredibly grateful for the positive difference made in our lives. I would highly recommend Richard and his team to anyone who needs assistance in negligence case. " - 5* Trustpilot review
