International law firm ONTIER LLP has announced the continued expansion of its London office with the appointment of Amy Harvey as a partner in its commercial litigation team.
Amy joins from Peters & Peters where she was most recently Of Counsel, having spent 11 years at the firm. She trained at Clyde & Co in London. Amy is ONTIER’s third new female partner in London in two months, following the hire of Aoife Keane from Seddons and promotion of Felicity Potter to the partnership in April, and brings ONTIER’s London partner tally to five.
At ONTIER, Amy will represent companies and HNWIs in a range of domestic and cross-border disputes with a particular focus on asset recovery.
Amy has extensive experience of conducting and managing multi-jurisdictional complex litigation, with particular expertise in tracing and recovering proceeds and obtaining interim remedies such as freezing injunctions, disclosure orders and other injunctions related to the preservation and protection of assets.
She has represented a broad range of clients with particular expertise in acting for HNWIs. Her previous casework experience has included acting for the Republic of Mozambique in US$2 billion Commercial Court proceedings against Credit Suisse, acting for a former trustee in multiple jurisdictions in relation to the alleged mismanagement of trust assets and acting for a HNWI in multiple jurisdictions in relation to disputes arising from the build and ownership of various superyachts.
Amy is the President of the Litigation Commission of the UIA (International Lawyers Association) and a Committee Member of the Commercial Litigators Forum.
Derek Stinson, Managing Partner of ONTIER LLP’s London office, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Amy to ONTIER. With her track record of running complex, multi-jurisdictional litigation matters, she will be a tremendous asset to the team. Her appointment reflects our continued commitment to delivering on our ambitious growth plans in response to client demand, particularly in the rapidly evolving digital-currency space. More partner hires are on the horizon as we continue to expand our international reach.”
Amy Harvey comments: “I am incredibly excited to be joining ONTIER and contributing to the ongoing growth of the ONTIER brand and its reputation as the stand-out firm in the world of digital-asset disputes, both here and overseas. I particularly look forward to further building my asset recovery practice within a team who already have an excellent reputation for complex disputes.”
