“The ‘outstanding’ Amy Fallows is praised for her ‘professional approach’ and ‘straight-forward and pragmatic advice’” – Legal 500 2019
Amy advises on all aspects of family law. She especially enjoys acting for clients who are working abroad, resolving their childcare issues or financial disputes. Amy has experience of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE in this context. She is equally happy guiding grandparents or other relatives through tricky Special Guardianship applications for children. She loves exercising her brain with complicated trust issues arising from cohabitation disputes or family company divorces. She has recently dealt with a number of ‘parental alienation’ childcare cases.
Whilst Amy is happy to ‘fight the client’s corner’, she prefers her collaborative work, valuing the skills and resolution techniques which truly assist clients at what is inevitably a difficult time. She never loses sight of what is important to her clients and the value of an agreed outcome.
Amy’s clients value her straightforward, pragmatic approach. She is unfazed by complicated cases and relishes the challenge of achieving a solution that is both fair and practical.
