Amy is a Legal Director in our Family team.

Many of Amy's cases involve significant complicating factors such as international issues and assets, as well as trusts, farms, share interests and options, businesses and pensions. 

Her international family law practice has seen her advise on financial settlements following a foreign divorce as well as negotiate international pre-nuptial agreements

Amy advises clients on legal arrangements for children and is experienced in cases that involve the relocation of children either within the UK or worldwide. She also deals with a range of other complex children matters that often include allegations of abuse, parental alienation or fabricated and induced illness. She has been involved in cases where expert psychiatrists and psychologists are required.

The nature of Amy’s work requires her to lend a reassuring and sympathetic ear with a focus on outstanding client care. She acts for individuals and families from all backgrounds across the UK and internationally — often working closely with other advisors like accountants, financial advisors, counsellors and coaches to achieve the best possible outcomes. Amy represents a number of wealthy and high-profile individuals and families, including sports personalities, business owners and landowners.

A member of Resolution and mental health first aider, Amy is committed to resolving family matters amicably and uses all her skills to support clients throughout the divorce process. While she always explores out of court and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options, Amy has extensive experience in dealing with court proceedings and has assembled a network of excellent specialist family law barristers.

After specialising in family law during her Legal Practice Course (in which she achieved a distinction), Amy has exclusively practised family law ever since. Prior to joining us in 2019, she worked at other law firms across the North West of England and London.

An experienced commentator on family law matters, Amy has made regular appearances on TV — including for the BBC, ITV and Sky — as well as on national and local radio. She has written for publications including Family Law Journal and the Resolution Review and has been quoted in The Times and The Daily Mail.

Amy is recognised by The Legal 500 — which has described her as “extremely capable”, “hard working” and committed to serving her clients — as well as Chambers and Partners, which notes that she “has notable expertise in financial remedy proceedings for individuals with high-value and complex assets”

Outside of work, Amy enjoys cooking and eating out as well as spending time walking in the Lake District with her family. She is passionate about the performing arts and enjoys regular trips to the theatre.

Amy is based in our Manchester office but regularly works from our other offices in Liverpool, Leeds and Lancashire to meet with clients.

Thank you to Amy Harris… the time I've had with my children since the hearing has been life changing for all and I cannot put into words what it means to me and them.
