Profile

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.

SERVICES:

Please see “profile” tab for description of the legal services provided by this barrister.

We aim to complete and return all paperwork within 14 days (2 weeks) of receipt if no specific deadline is provided. We can work to much faster timescales if requested or we can agree a specific target date for each individual circumstance. We will always advise at the outset if counsel is unable to meet any deadline.

Each barrister has a standard hourly rate for their work. The individual hourly rate can be agreed when instructions are acknowledged if preferred. We welcome early discussion as to the suitability of a specific barrister for a specific case. The right barrister will have the relevant expertise to deal with the case but will not be too junior, or too senior depending on the complexities.

We aim to allocate all cases to the correct level of experience & seniority which we believe will prove most to be the most cost effective solution for our clients.

If, due to urgency, we allocate paperwork to a more senior member of Clerksroom, we will charge the appropriate hourly rate for the work, not for the barrister. We welcome early discussion to ensure the correct fee is applied to the case at the outset.
