Fatima Bakare (2018) General Information Fatima has extensive experience having worked as a solicitor in both high street and larger firms before becoming a barrister in 2018. As a result, she has an excellent understanding of the needs of instructing solicitors and their clients and appreciates the importance of a pragmatic and commercially focused approach. Fatima’s particular specialism is in Personal Injury with a focus on Employer’s Liability and Public Liability claims at all levels. She does, however, have experience in more General Litigation matters and so would welcome instructions on any civil matter commensurate with her level of experience. She is based in Greater Manchester and is willing to travel. As a solicitor, Fatima was known for her client focused manner and her determination to achieve the best result in each case. She carried out the advocacy in the cases that she dealt with and so it was a natural step for her to become a barrister. Her experience has given Fatima strong technical knowledge and the ability to rigorously analyse the legal issues in any case. Her extensive knowledge of the law led her to produce training materials at one of her previous firms. This covered a wide variety of topics. Away from work Fatima enjoys social dancing, travelling and likes to keep fit.
