Kashmir joined Shoosmiths in May 2016, having previously been a Partner and joint national lead for clinical negligence at Thompsons Solicitors.
Kashmir won the accolade of ‘Partner of the Year’ at the Birmingham Law Society Awards 2018, in part in recognition of her work on behalf of patients injured by rogue breast surgeon Mr Ian Paterson.
She also won ‘Clinical Negligence Lawyer of the Year’ at the national Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards in November 2018. Again, her campaign to expose Ian Paterson’s criminal behavior and deliver justice to those he injured impressed the judges who unanimously agreed to award her this prestigious title.
Most of her clients have suffered significant and serious injuries and her extensive experience results in multi million pound settlements. These cases include children and young adults who have suffered brain injury at the time of or shortly after birth.
She has worked on a range of complex cases including amputations, spinal cord, head injuries and fatalities, securing significant compensation.
Her particular expertise is in multi-party actions, having been the lead solicitor in the complex litigation arising from the surgical procedures performed by the disgraced breast surgeon, Mr Ian Paterson.
