Part of the Military Claims Team
Ahmed is a Partner in our military team. Since joining Bolt Burdon Kemp in 2011 he has developed a strong practice in workplace claims and has led the development of our work on bullying and discrimination cases for members of the armed forces.
A keen negotiator, he achieves the best possible outcome for his clients, whether that means a valuable pre-action settlement or a fight for compensation at court.
Ahmed specialises in defending the rights of service personnel in the workplace against poor conditions, discrimination and harassment. He represents claimants in the employment tribunal and the civil courts who have suffered from stress and depression as a result.
He also manages high value personal injury and clinical negligence claims, often involving serious accidents suffered during training, or through failures to treat and rehabilitate. He ensures that all his clients are seen at an early stage by the right medical experts, so that their injuries can be fully investigated, an assessment made of their future needs, and a strategy agreed for the successful progression of their claims.
In addition to acting for service personnel, Ahmed represents consultants in the close protection, maritime security and other off-shore industries who have suffered accidents at work as a result of faulty equipment or poor training. He works closely with a number of medical and employment experts in these fields. He knows that this expertise is essential in assessing the financial and personal losses that can result from injuries to these highly trained personnel.
