Rachel RoachIrwin Mitchell

The Yorkshire region is established as a clinical negligence stronghold for Irwin Mitchell. The national firm’s Leeds and Sheffield offices, headed by Sarah Coles and Julianne Moore respectively, enjoy an enviable reputation and a large and varied workload. A total of 59 case handlers from both locations deal with high value cases relating to births, brain and spinal injuries, amputations and mental health, while a dedicated mini-team in Sheffield handles lower value cases from around the country. The department collaborates with charities and organisations to raise awareness of specific conditions and encourage early diagnosis and fast treatment. Rachel Roach, one of three team leaders in the medical negligence team in Leeds, is a key member of the practice.
