Legal 500 - Leading Individual 2017

Amanda is Head of Winckworth Sherwood's Family Law team. She has been a family lawyer for over 23 years, and has extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of family law and especially complex children issues and finances, including offshore trusts, complicated property issues and corporate structures.

She is a committed Resolution member, and an Accredited Specialist since 2005. She believes in resolution without recourse to court proceedings wherever possible, but without compromising on fairness. Amanda is a trained Mediator and uses these skills to find sensible and fair solutions at the earliest opportunity, be it in relation to children or the financial aspects of relationship breakdown.

She has been consistently recognised in Legal Directories, being noted by Chambers (2015) that her clients were ‘…impressed by her knowledge and experience, intellectual and emotional intelligence, efficiency and empathy’, and that she ‘can’t go far enough for her clients’ (2016). She was ranked as a Leading Individual by Legal 500, in 2015 and 2016, being described by her clients and peers as ‘empathetic and pragmatic’, and ‘calm and balanced’. She is also consistently recognised by Citywealth as a prominent figure in the Leading Lawyers Honours List.
