Amy deals with all aspects of family law and has particular expertise in divorce and finance cases which often involve complex trust and company arrangements with an international dimension.

Amy has represented many high-profile clients in exceptionally high-value and complicated litigation.  However, complexity is the theme of her practice rather than the value of the cases she works on.  Amy attracts clients from all over the country, and internationally, who seek her out to find a solution to the most difficult legal issues concerning finances, cross-border disputes and children matters.  Many of Amy’s clients are the result of referrals from other lawyers who know her to be an exceptional problem solver and a talented litigator.

The majority of Amy’s time is spent dealing with cases in court proceedings but she also has an active practice of drafting pre and post nuptial agreements and conducts professional negligence claims with a family law element.

Chambers and Partners describe Amy as ‘an incredible lawyer with forensic attention to detail and solid interpersonal skills.’  Legal 500 say that her ‘attention to detail and research capabilities are outstanding.  Amy is a first-class lawyer and leaves no stone unturned.’ Amy was also listed in the 2019 Spear’s 500 guide.

Amy is a committee member of the European Circuit, an organisation of lawyers who specialise in cross-border litigation.  She has a Masters (Distinction) in International Law from the University of Nottingham and has a general interest in both public and private International law.
