Amy specialises in advising family owned businesses and owner-managed businesses, and has experience in advising business owners in relation to a variety of corporate and commercial work including acquisitions and disposals, and shareholder and partnership arrangements, on a wide range of transactions.

  • lead adviser to a private equity backed dental acquirer based in England, in relation to the acquisition by the client of multiple dental practices across Scotland. Amy’s relationship with this client has proven to be a key factor in this consolidator appointing Harper Macleod as its sole legal adviser on its acquisitions in Scotland;
  • lead adviser to a family owned group of companies within the waste management sector on all corporate and commercial matters; and
  • lead adviser to a variety of businesses in the marine economy, fintech, financial services and transport and logistics industries on investment, complex succession planning and transfer of ownership matters.

In addition to managing her legal workload, Amy has initiated and developed a successful business development initiative, and so also plays an important role in our Corporate team in terms of business generation.
