Notable cases

AA & 25 Ors (Children) [2019] EWFC 64 - Amy represented her client who was at the forefront of an ‘unprecedentedly complex case’ involving four local authorities, 24 respondents (21 of whom where alleged perpetrators of sexual abuse involved allegations of an alleged inter-familial pedophile ring) and numerous children. The case also involved complex legal argument regarding the respondent’s application to dismiss proceedings at ‘half time’ (after the applicant’s evidence had been heard).
