I'm a Senior Associate in the Medical Negligence team, based in Irwin Mitchell’s London office. I joined the firm in 2008.
I studied Law at the University of Birmingham before completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law. I am also accredited as a Senior Litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I have a diverse caseload of medical law claims, including cases of negligent misdiagnosis, surgery and delays in referral. I represent families who have been bereaved as a result of substandard medical practice and I also have a special interest in cosmetic surgery cases, regularly advising on the outcome of surgeries including breast surgery, rhinoplasty and abdominoplasty.
I take ownership of cases at the earliest stage, with an immediate emphasis on securing rehabilitation for those clients in need, where interim funding is available. I strive to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients and pursue cases against NHS Trusts, GPs and medical professionals in private practice.
"Marcos Eleftheriou has followed my case and supported me since the beginning. He has always been very clear and helped me all the way. He has also been responsive and answered all my questions timely. I truly recommend Irvin Mitchell and particularly Marcos as I had an outstanding experience with him." -5* Trustpilot review
"Marcos demonstrated empathy and handled the rather sensitive subject matter of my case extremely professionally. He was warm, personable and confident, and realistic about our potential throughout. He believed in our argument from day one, and pushed forward when others disagreed. I'll always be grateful that I found him, he helped me close an emotionally devastating chapter of my life, and the funds received upon my settlement helped me to move forward."-5* Trustpilot review
"Marcos was extremely professional, open yet at the same time came across as very humane, understanding, very tactful and empathetic. All through the process he had been there for me and my family never tiring of explaining each and every step along the way, never pushing but guiding us along. Always there when we needed him, always ready to help and support. Marcos and his team had gone an extra mile and more to represent our interest in this case and needless to say the claim was settled more and beyond what we have hoped for. We are forever grateful to Marcos Eleftheriou and Irwin Mitchel's team for being there for us at this most difficult moment in our life."-5* Trustpilot review
"I have recently won a very lengthy clinical negligence case with Irwin Mitchel. Marcos Eleftheriou, my solicitor, I cannot recommend enough. He has been amazing over the past 4 years, I feel he has always had my best interest at heart, he has given me great advice and listened to everything I have asked. It has been a pleasure to work with Marcos, I am so grateful for the years of hard work he, and his team, have put into my case. I now finally have closure and that’s all down to Marcos." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I have recently won my professional negligence case and know that I would not have received the settlement I did, or indeed necessarily have won the case if it were not for my fantastic team of lawyers at Irwin Mitchell, led by Marcos Eleftheriou. Irwin Mitchell rightly deserves its leading reputation in professional negligence and Marcos had an awesome bedrock of knowledge to bring to the case. He is excellent lawyer; he is very responsive, pragmatic and commercial. He had superb judgment and really went above and beyond. I cannot recommend Marcos enough. Great lawyer and I am jut so thankful to have had him on my side." - 5* Trustpilot review
