Oliver Collett

Senior Associate Solicitor


I am a Senior Associate in the workplace illness team in Leeds. I graduated from The University of Birmingham in 2000, before returning home to Leeds and qualifying as a solicitor in 2004.

I have specialised in asbestos related disease claims from an early stage in my career, with a particular interest in mesothelioma.

My aim is to provide a sensitive, caring and supportive approach to what is a very difficult time for clients. I strive to deliver swift and efficient legal advice in order to obtain the best possible outcome in the shortest space of time.


"We engaged Irwin Mitchell to pursue a claim on behalf of my father-in-law, who tragically died from mesothelioma. At all stages of the process the team demonstrated exceptional skills, experience, professionalism and empathy. I would strongly recommend Irwin Mitchell to anyone who is thinking of pursuing a compensation claim for Mesothelioma or any other occupational illness and injury." – Client

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Being able to offer support to people at a time when they are at their most vulnerable and to work tirelessly to deliver justice for them and their families.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Being able to work as part of an experienced and dedicated team of specialists who constantly have the best interests of their clients at the forefront of their minds.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I'm an avid lover of sport, particularly football, rugby and cricket. Unfortunately, my involvement is more armchair than active these days, but I am lucky that my young family keep me busy enough to burn off (most of) the required daily calories.
