Amelia BauerTrainee solicitor
Trainee solicitor in the personal injury and clinical negligence team
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.
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.
