Amy ScollanSenior Associate
Amy has joined Hunters from a well-regarded commercial firm in Leeds. Amy’s focus in recent years has been on complicated finance matters with an international dimension since obtaining an LL.M in International Law (with distinction) from the University of Nottingham in 2014.
Last year, Amy successfully acted on a leading jurisdiction dispute, and is often instructed by clients based abroad.
Amy has a strong experience in domestic finance disputes, especially those with complicated high value asset bases, and when Amy is not dealing with international work this work makes up her main caseload.
In addition, Amy has experience in unusual Children Act work, such as cases where the courts’ inherent jurisdiction is invoked; location orders sought, and where guardians are appointed. Amy also litigates property disputes between unmarried couples and prepared pre and post nuptial agreements.
Amy has also worked on pioneering legal applications. In 2015 Amy was instructed by the Child Support Agency to act for them in defending an appeal on a question which had not been before the court before. And in 2012 Amy obtained the courts’ permission to serve family proceedings by Facebook for the first time. Amy is an active member of Resolution, and Chaired the North and West Yorkshire Young Resolution’s Committee throughout 2016.
