Amelia BauerTrainee solicitor
Trainee solicitor in the regulatory team
I am a second-year trainee solicitor sitting in the regulatory team, advising clients in the health and social care, education, and housing sectors.
My previous seats were in commercial property and construction. I gained experience in drafting numerous commercial contracts and 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 am the education officer for the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors’ Society (20/21 Committee). My role involves 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 recently chaired a webinar for trainee solicitors on the topic of training and qualifying in the Covid-era.
