Emma joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in July 2023 as a newly qualified Solicitor in our Abuse team.
Emma specialises in bringing civil claims for compensation on behalf of survivors of abuse and assault.
Emma brings to the team five years of experience in Human Rights & Civil Liberties, having worked, trained, and qualified at a leading Human Rights firm. Prior to this, Emma studied at the University of Bristol where she obtained her undergraduate degree in English Literature and then a Masters in Law.
During her career to date, Emma is proud to have worked closely on high profile civil claims, representing victims of the 1982 Hyde Park bombing and another claim involving the 1984 shooting of WPC Yvonne Fletcher from inside the Libyan embassy. More recently, Emma has represented the UK victims of social media personality Andrew Tate.
Emma is passionate about representing individuals whose rights have been violated and assisting survivors of abuse in giving them a voice to speak out. Emma has worked closely with survivors of abuse from all walks of life, and understands the importance of justice and what this can mean to an individual; whether it be compensation, an admission of guilt, an apology, or simply getting the truth out there.
Emma is a sensitive and empathetic listener and always strives to put her clients at ease during the legal process. Emma works hard to build a relationship of trust with her clients and will always aim to secure the very best outcome.
