Amy has always had a particular interest in Clinical Negligence, as she finds the work to be very rewarding, unique, and challenging. She was therefore happy to join the Clinical Negligence Department to work as part of the team upon her qualification.
Amy manages her own caseload as well as providing supportive services to the Solicitors within the Clinical Negligence Department, including: evidence gathering, research in a wide range of clinical negligence cases, negotiating settlements with Defendants, interviewing and advising clients on their claims, and setting up the funding for claims.
At home Amy is interested in exercise and nutrition, which stems from her days as a competitive swimmer. Amy swam at numerous UK National finals and was a member of the British Swimming World Class Potential Squad. Although Amy no longer swims competitively, she still loves to keep fit and enjoys trying out new healthy recipes in the kitchen.
