Amy joined Shoosmiths in February 2013 as a solicitor in the clinical negligence department.
Amy qualified as a solicitor in September 2009.
Amy works on a wide range of diverse cases across clinical negligence, including injuries arising from birth, psychiatric treatment, complications following anaesthetic, neurological injury, orthopaedic injuries and birth injury claims amongst others.
Amy has assisted families who have lost relatives due to negligence in preparing for Inquests. She has extensive experience of bringing claims following the death of a relative.
Amy's client feedback includes comments such as "I cannot thank Amy enough. She has always been nice and understanding when I became upset. She explained everything to me in a way I could understand." and "It is five years since we contacted Shoosmiths for advice regarding the unexplained death of my husband. Throughout this time Amy has been kind, yet highly professional, in the manner she has offered support and guidance and we could not have got through this traumatic time without her."
Work highlights include:
- representing a family at an inquest and securing a neglect conclusion where the failure to provide the deceased with basic observations led to her death; and
- securing an excellent settlement for a young woman who suffered an injury at birth. The client now has a settlement to enable her to be as independent as possible.
Amy was named as an "Associate to Watch" in Chambers and Partners 2022 and it was noted "Amy Greaves is very knowledgeable and always well prepared. She is also very caring and is brilliant with clients". "She has a real eye or detail. She is very attentive and thorough - nothing slips by her."
In Legal 500 2022 it was noted Amy is "very determined and hardworking. Amy handles complex cases with ease. Amy is very calm under pressure and never loses her focus".
Amy also works closely with charities including National Institute of Conductive Education and Child Brain Injury Trust.
Prior to joining Shoosmiths, Amy was a solicitor with Anthony Collins Solicitors LLP. Amy graduated with a 2:1 from University of Birmingham prior to training as a solicitor.
Outside of work, Amy also enjoys running, playing tennis, socialising with friends and family, reading and buying shoes that she cannot walk in.
