Amanda is a solicitor and collaborative lawyer in the Family team.  She specialises in resolving disputes arising from divorce and separation.  Her cases often involve significant assets and have an international or trust element.

She has wide experience in every aspect of family law, with a particular focus on private children cases such as those involving international relocation, residence and contact issues, and child abduction.  She advises a number of high profile individuals, including politicians and those from the entertainment industry, as well as city and business professionals.

Amanda combines an eye for detail with a client-centred, creative and diplomatic approach.  She frequently works with colleagues from other teams to provide a rounded service.

She trained at Mishcon de Reya and worked at Payne Hicks Beach and Camilla Baldwin before joining Forsters in 2014.

The Legal 500 (2012 edition) referred to Amanda as 'highly rated'.

 

"We benefit from a partner-level service but always with really strong junior members of the team to do the heavy lifting. They are consistently one of the best firms we use."
