Irwin Mitchell’s team covers an array of complex and high-volume claims, notwithstanding some changes on the senior level. Francesca Mayes continues to lead the serious injury subgroup, which has grown and gained a new partner with the promotion of Jane Pyrah in May 2021. Senior associate Laura Mcilduff is ‘tenacious and brilliant’. With Angela Kirtley ’s departure to Ward Hadaway LLP in August 2021, Sarah Coles now heads the medical negligence practice from both Leeds and Newcastle, supported by senior associate Samuel Hill and several new associate hires. Taking the place of Roger Maddocks, who retired in April 2022, as head of workplace injury is Ian Toft who moved from Leeds to Newcastle.
