Amy joined BTO in 2017. Before joining BTO, Amy completed a varied traineeship with a global full service law firm which included a six-month secondment to the Scottish Government Litigation Division. After completing her traineeship, Amy worked as a Solicitor in the Litigation Team of a Scottish law firm, representing clients in a variety of disputes ranging from commercial contract disputes to medical negligence actions and family matters.

She regularly represents clients at interviews and provides early advice to clients in the immediate aftermath of an incident on the health and safety investigation, enforcement notices and the HSE’s Fee for Intervention Scheme. Where possible, she encourages the early resolution of matters, either by persuading the Crown to discontinue proceedings or by plea negotiation to ensure the best outcome for the client.
