Harry Yeoward

Harry joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in August 2019 as a paralegal in the Spinal Injuries Team.  In this capacity, he is assisting Alex Dabek and other solicitors in the Spinal Injuries team across a range of cases.

Harry aspires to become a specialist solicitor in the field of clinical negligence, with a particular interest in spinal injury.  Harry is particularly passionate about improving the quality of life for those injured as a result of clinical negligence and achieving the best possible outcomes for them in their compensation claims.

Prior to joining Bolt Burdon Kemp, he volunteered at both the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and the National Centre for Domestic Violence.  In these roles, he provided telephone advice and assistance on a wide range of issues (housing, employment) and helped draft witness statements on behalf of victims of domestic violence.  Being able to provide legal assistance and increasing access to justice is what motivates Harry most.  Whilst studying for the GDL, Harry also volunteered at the Witness Service, guiding witnesses and their families through their day in court.  He found providing guidance and support in these emotive situations hugely rewarding.  It was this experience, coupled with a desire to work in a people-focussed area of law, which led him to pursue a career at Bolt Burdon Kemp.

Harry completed a degree in History from the University of Bristol in 2016.  He subsequently completed the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course, whilst at the same time studying for a Masters in Law and Business, at the University of Law, Chester, achieving distinctions in both.
