Matt Brown



I joined Irwin Mitchell as a trainee solicitor in 1997 and qualified in 1999. I spent nine years developing my expertise in the field of personal injury litigation at the firm's Leeds office, and was appointed Associate in 2004.

In 2008 I moved to Manchester to help develop our new office there, and this is where I remain, practising exclusively in the field of Claimant catastrophic injury litigation (typically claims involving head and spinal injury, complex orthopaedic injuries & amputation).

Formerly Secretary of the Wakefield branch of Headway, I now sit on the Management committee of Headway Salford and I am a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel. I am an APIL accredited Senior Litigator.

I was made a Partner in the practice in May 2010.

    This latest campaign launched by Greater Manchester Police is undoubtedly spreading a very important message as the festive period approaches. It is vital drivers remain sensible and responsible in the run up to Christmas when it comes to getting behind the wheel. “It almost goes without saying, but driving after consuming alcohol does more than put the driver in harm’s way. It also affects passengers and other road users such as pedestrians or cyclists who are in a vulnerable position. "Having seen all too often the devastating impact drink-driving can have on so many lives, we can only encourage road users to think carefully about their actions and to do their absolute utmost to keep themselves and others safe from harm."

This dragged the criminal proceedings out far longer than necessary having a further impact on David and his family as they were unable to fully concentrate on his recovery. “We are now working with the driver’s insurers to secure the necessary funds to help David with his rehabilitation so that he can begin to get his life back on track."
