Amanda is a newly appointed Silk with a thriving professional liability and insurance practice. Winner of the prestigious Chambers & Partners Professional Negligence Junior of the Year award in 2014 (and nominated for the same in 2019), she has been described as “a spectacular advocate who has held her own against established silks for years” who produces “well crafted and thorough” pleadings and is “brilliant to deal with – exceptionally bright, very commercial and will speak to clients on their level”. She prides herself on providing an excellent level of service to her clients and those that instruct her and her attention to detail, together with a no-nonsense approach to litigation.
Amanda’s professional liability practice involves high-value and/or complex claims against a wide range of professions. She has particular experience of claims against lawyers (including applications for wasted costs), being regularly instructed by leading solicitors’ insurers and BMIF. Amanda has been involved in several high-profile lawyers’ claims, including the Hotel litigation, Right to Buy litigation, GWM v Templeton, Williams v Thompson Leatherdale, Daniels v Thompson and Brown v Bennett.
Amanda also has a thriving general commercial and insurance practice. The latter dovetails well with Amanda’s experience of claims against insurance professionals and her expertise in the professional liability field and she is regularly instructed on coverage disputes.
Amanda is an editor of Jackson and Powell on Professional Liability and a member of the Professional Negligence Bar Association, and, until recently, sat as a judge on the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal panel.
