My role

I am a trainee solicitor in the personal injury and clinical negligence team. I represent claimants in all types of this sectors claims. I also assist claimants who have suffered as a result of negligence or abuse, either as a child or a vulnerable adult. This includes civil claims under the Human Rights Act 1998.

My previous training seats were in regulatory, construction, and commercial property.

My experience

During my training at Anthony Collins Solicitors, I have gained experience in contentious and non-contentious matters. I advised on a variety of health and social care regulatory matters, including inquests, CQC regulatory matters such as factual accuracy challenges, wilful neglect and safeguarding investigations, and health and safety advice. I have experience in advising education providers on their regulatory obligations and advised on safeguarding policies. I have also drafted numerous commercial contracts and have worked closely with our contentious team on high-value litigation matters relating to poor workmanship and non-compliance with building and fire safety regulations.

In addition to my role as a trainee solicitor, I was the education officer for the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors’ Society (20/21 Committee). My role involved delivering webinars and networking sessions at local universities, colleges and schools to raise the profile of the Birmingham legal community and encourage a more diverse industry. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, I chaired a webinar for trainee solicitors on the topic of training and qualifying in the Covid-era. I currently assist the Birmingham Law Society’s Pro Bono Committee as acting secretary.
