Amy Anderson joined the Health & Safety and Regulatory Defence team 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.

Since joining BTO, Amy has specialised in all aspects of regulatory work, representing clients who are subject to investigation by the HSE, local authorities including Environmental Health and Trading Standards, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Care Inspectorate, Trading Standards, Scottish Legal Complaints Commission and the Law Society of Scotland, among others. Amy regularly provides early advice to clients in the immediate aftermath of an incident. She represents clients at interviews and guides them through the investigation in a sensitive and pragmatic way. She advises clients on appeals against Enforcement Notices, representing clients in the Employment Tribunal where appeal proceedings are taken. 

Amy also regularly represents clients who are being prosecuted for regulatory offences and/or are involved in Fatal Accident Inquiries. Where possible, Amy 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. 

Amy also frequently provides compliance advice and delivers training to clients, including preparing and presenting mock Trials. 

Amy is a member of BTO’s Social Housing Unit and specialises in advising Registered Social Landlords on their regulatory obligations.

She is a member of the Health and Safety Lawyers’ Association.
