Position

Amy has a broad commercial practice with a particular interest in public international law; international arbitration; human rights; employment law. The Legal 500 (2013) describes Amy as ‘outstanding’ and says she is ‘potentially the brightest rising star in a set which has many bright stars’. In 2013, Amy was named as one of the ten ‘Stars of the Bar’ under ten years’ call by Legal Week (November 2013). Amy is described as ‘extremely easy to work with… very keen to get on with the job in hand’. The publication quotes instructing solicitors as having described Amy as ‘bright and very responsive’, with one lawyer stating ‘whether in terms of skeleton arguments or longer written pleadings, Amy’s written advocacy is first rate,’ adding that ‘her legal and research skills are excellent and exceptional in terms of mastering and getting to the heart of issues’. Amy was appointed Junior Counsel to the Crown (the Attorney General’s Public International Law C Panel) in 2014, and Junior Counsel to the Crown (the Attorney General’s London C Panel) in 2013. She is also on the panel of EHRC (Equality and Human Rights Commission) Counsel.
