I'm a Partner in the Birmingham office and provide specialist legal advice for people who've suffered serious injury due to their work.
I specialise in occupational diseases which covers predominantly asbestos-related diseases, such as life-limiting mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer. I also help people who've been negligently exposed to a wide range of noxious chemicals, fumes and dust including silica, wood dust, and paint.
I've acted for hundreds of clients and I strive to bring some justice to those whose lives have been blighted in the workplace where they should have been protected and safeguarded from injury. I have handled many difficult complex cases where exposure has not been so straightforward, including domestic and environmental exposure. I'm committed to ensuring that my clients receive full compensation for their illness and injuries.
What inspired you to get into law?
I guess from a young age I have always wanted to fight for the underdog. A career in law seemed like an obvious choice. It may sound like a cliché but I know that the job I do will make a significant difference to my clients lives.
A career in Law is challenging, where you are constantly learning and growing, with the need to stay up to date on new laws, practice and procedure and I enjoy that aspect of my work. No two days are the same.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is undoubtedly the clients I meet.
I have met some incredible people throughout my career and many of my clients have been an inspiration to me in the way in which they have fought with dogged determination for justice and stayed strong and resilient in the face of adversity.
I have made some good friends through my work and stayed in touch with some clients many years after I have settled their case.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2005. I work with such an incredibly talented team of experts and this is what I like most about working at Irwin Mitchell.
What do you do away from the office?
I like to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy music, reading and sports.
"Satinder is very kind and caring but make no mistake she is a tenacious and very stoic solicitor. She stood firm and rejected unsatisfactory offers where she felt that she could do better for my Late Father. She never lost sight that the claim was to get justice for my Dad. She communicated with us at every step keeping us well informed and up to date... I would definitely recommend Satinder Bains at Irwin Mitchell, Birmingham." 5* Trustpilot review
"Dear Satinder I would like to say what a wonderful job you did for me on my Industrial Injury Claim. Everything you promised you delivered on, leaving no stones unturned, constantly updating and researching every detail I gave you, making certain nothing was missed or misrepresented. You made life for me and my wife Margaret [easy] because the correspondence was clear and precise I can honestly say we never in any doubt that you would come through for us. You were always so professional." 5* Trustpilot review
"From the outset Satinder was very supportive and explained everything clearly. The claim took some considerable time to bring to a conclusion mainly due to some complexities and the time taken by the other side. I was kept informed at every stage and the case was successfully brought to a conclusion. I would highly recommend Satinder and her team." 5* Trustpilot review
"My mum decided to put in a claim after my dad passed away suffering with Mesothelioma. She had been recommended Irwin Mitchell and I'm so grateful that she was. As my mum is in her 80s technology is not her thing and Satinder Bains who took on the case was so understanding, patient and amenable with this. Any emails or scanning that needed to be done (especially during lockdown) I was able to do on my mum's behalf.
Satinder took all the stress away from my mum, yes there were quite a few forms to fill in but Satinder or one of her colleagues were only a phone call/email away if we had any queries and by having my mum's authority she was able to get documents that were needed that my mum didn't have. Nothing seemed like too much trouble for Satinder. We were kept informed through every step and she made sure that my mum understood everything before proceeding. She is highly professional which we can not fault! Thank you Satinder for all your hard work." 5* Trustpilot review
"I used Satinder Bains at Irwin Mitchell to help me fight for compensation for an Asbestos related Lung Cancer. The information that Satinder collected as evidence on my behalf was very complex and if she hadn't been as conscientious and thorough in her investigations I have no doubt I wouldn't have been successful in my claim. Satinder was professional and courteous throughout the whole process, and explained all the issues that came up which was very reassuring." 5* Trustpilot review
