Hunters is delighted to announce that Amy Scollan has joined the firm’s Family Department as an Associate.

Amy joins us from Clarion Solicitors in Leeds and has received recognition throughout the legal sector for her stand-out case work and is referred to as a “star of the future” by The Legal 500 UK 2014.   Most recently Chambers and Partners 2017 praised Amy, commenting that she has “impressive experience in international cases, with a primary focus on European matters. She is acknowledged by market sources as “an incredible lawyer,” with forensic attention to detail and solid interpersonal skills.”

Amy has made a particular name for pioneering applications such as her 2012 application for permission to serve proceeding via Facebook, the first time such an application has been made in family proceedings, gaining attention in the press with the headline ‘Clarion makes legal history.’

Amy brings to Hunters considerable and proven experience in HNW financial provision on divorce and the division of complex asset bases with an international legal element. She also has particular expertise in variation applications, confiscation proceedings, enforcement and wardship applications.

Amy said: “I am delighted to be joining Hunters’ Family Team. Each individual within the department is a stand-out leader in the field of family law, with a range of specialities which will enable me to enhance and grow my practice further.”

Henry Hood, Head of Hunters’ Family Department, commented: “Amy’s strong reputation in the family law arena speaks for itself. Her experience and knowledge of financial provision matters is a valuable addition to our team.”
