Legal Expertise

Amelia welcomes instructions to represent families and other interested persons at inquests. She has previously been instructed in inquests involving persons in custody, deaths in hospital and mental health care.

Given her public law practice she has experience of advising on the merits of any application for permission to judicially review decisions made in the coronial courts.

Amelia regularly represents clients in a broad range of hearings, from interim order review hearings to substantive hearings. Amelia has previously acted for registrants and regulatory bodies at multi-day substantive hearings.

Amelia began her employment law practice by representing clients on a pro bono basis with FRU in the Employment Tribunals. Since then she has been involved in increasingly complex cases and has experience in representing and advising clients in employment disputes raising the following issues:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Unlawful Deduction of Wages
  • Constructive Dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Failure to make reasonable adjustments
  • Victimisation

Amelia is regularly instructed in all areas of personal injury work. She has experience of serious personal injury litigation and is adept at drafting complex schedules of loss. She has a broad personal injury practice covering employer’s liability, occupier’s liability, product liability and road traffic accidents. She has particular experience appearing in trials where causation is in issue and where there are allegations of fundamental dishonesty.
