I am the Regional Managing Partner for our Birmingham office, and also head the very successful Medical Negligence team based there. This is an area I have specialised exclusively in for the last 15 years. It is an area of law that is both challenging and rewarding and although it still has the capacity to make me very sad I can't imagine practising any other type of law.
Irwin Mitchell is a fantastic firm to work for, they are and always have been totally committed to this work and the resources we all have to call upon make the job a much easier one for lawyers and clients alike. As well as heading the team I now work just on cases for children with cerebral palsy and I'm sure there can't be a more inspiring group of clients to work with.

My father, I'm not even sure I can remember how or why since he isn't a lawyer and neither was anyone else in the family but I blame him.
Undoubtedly the clients I have had the privilege to work with over the years who remind me constantly what is important in life.
The excellent lawyers I work with who make me look good and the support services that surround me which make my job so much easier than it otherwise would and enable me to provide a comprehensive service for my clients.
In the occasional spare moments that my husband and three children haven't planned out for me I love to read, exercise, watch films, travel and drink good wine although probably not in that order.
“These awards recognise lawyers and firms at the very top of their game and to be shortlisted among such impressive and inspiring candidates achieving incredible things for our profession is a true honour. I am grateful for the support from my IM colleagues and wider professional network with the nomination and I look forward to representing the IM family on the night!”
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to provide this donation to such a fantastic cause within the local community. Our Charity of the Year initiative has always been something that our people are very passionate about and they worked extremely hard throughout 2018 to ensure we delivered as much as we possibly could for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice. We are particularly delighted to have raised more than any other office this year and have already set ourselves the target of doing the same again in 2019.”
“Joining forces with CBSO in its centenary year is a natural fit for Irwin Mitchell. We are delighted to be working with an orchestra with such a strong international reputation, in a partnership spanning all service lines of our business. The relationship provides a platform to engage with a range of clients, from business legal services and Private Wealth to personal injury, while supporting the orchestra that pioneered the use of the arts to give a sense of direction to Birmingham and beyond.”
“We’re really pleased to have won three awards at last night’s Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards, this is fantastic news for our office.
“This is a huge achievement and it’s testament to the energy and talent within our teams at Irwin Mitchell.
“It’s great to see our people and the firm being recognised externally as there is a great deal of competition in the region. Well done to everyone involved on this massive team effort.”
