Amy trained at a large full-service law firm where she concentrated on litigation and went on to qualify into this area, undertaking work in the civil and criminal courts.
In 2012, Amy moved on to Harper Macleod’s newly formed Business Development team where she is now a Senior Associate and specialises in the identification and implementation of new business opportunities and strategies within the firm. In particular, Amy assists with the management and development of Harper Macleod’s HM Connect network – a referral and support network for high street and rural law firms which operates via Harper Macleod offering its full complement of legal services and expertise to such law firms on a fee-sharing, non-client poaching basis. HM Connect has over 380 member firms located throughout Scotland.
Amy sits on the Law Society of Scotland’s Subcommittees for both Complaints and Practicing Certificates and I also tutor on the Commercial Awareness course on the Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Glasgow.
During Amy’s time at the University of Strathclyde Law School she was a student advisor within the Law Clinic and since then, have remained committed to the promotion of pro-bono work within the profession.
