About Nimmisha

My job includes guiding clients through what can be an overwhelming process after suffering a life changing incident. I am dedicated to helping my clients receive appropriate compensation and have early access to rehabilitation in order to ensure they get the best quality of life.

Nimmisha advises clients on a wide spectrum of claims involving both physical and psychological injuries. Her expertise includes catastrophic road traffic accidents, fatal injury cases, accidents at work, criminal injuries and a variety of claims arising from clinical negligence. 

She has a special interest in the evolving area of illegality in civil claims, specifically where mental health failures have resulted in the death of a third party. She has acted for families at inquests and in civil claims in this area of law.  

Nimmisha is advising and representing some of those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

Having begun her career at a local advice centre, Nimmisha is passionate about access to justice and is a trustee for the South West London Law Centres. 

Nimmisha has been at Russell-Cooke since 2012, qualifying in to the personal injury team in 2016. 

Nimmisha Aslam is an excellent junior solicitor who is destined for great things. Easy to work with, approachable and committed to assisting injured people. Good instincts and excellent at assessing risk and managing claims for maximisation of outcomes.
