Camilla joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in September 2021 as a newly qualified solicitor within the Medical Negligence team. She will be working closely with Hannah Travis, Associate, and the rest of the medical negligence team on a wide range of cases involving delays in diagnosis of cancer, fatal claims, injuries to the senses, amputations and on women’s health related medical negligence claims.
Camilla is passionate about access to justice and fighting for clients’ rights whilst providing the highest standard of client care. Camilla places client care at the forefront of her work, and is very aware of the crucial role she plays in rebuilding trust in professionals at a time when often, a client’s faith in professionals has been damaged.
Camilla’s previous experience, gained during her time as a paralegal and a trainee solicitor includes representing both children and adults who have suffered medical negligence, relating to orthopaedic and surgical injuries, delayed diagnoses and death due to negligence. In the final seat of her training contract, Camilla assisted extremely vulnerable clients, including those affected by negligence, within the NHS Mental Health services.
Camilla volunteered at the Camden Citizen’s Advice which allowed her to develop her client care skills whilst dealing with vulnerable clients with wide-ranging issues.
Camilla read Biomedical Science at Brighton University before obtaining her Masters in Medical Ethics and Law at King’s College London. Camilla then completed the GDL and the LPC at the University of Law. Camilla studied for her LPC at weekends whilst working full-time as a paralegal. She then went on to complete her training contract at a London firm.
