Practice Overview

Amy Rogers is a leading junior with a broad litigation practice, featured by the directories in each of commercial dispute resolution, employment and public law. The directories say: "sparklingly intelligent, she works her socks off and is the junior du jour for a number of top commercial silks, as they know Amy will show them off to their best advantage", "very astute commercial judgement and is very good with clients", “a wealth of praise from commentators”, “a charming, yet tenacious and determined litigator”, and “especially adept at claims relating to conspiracy and economic torts, and proceedings addressing allegations of breach of fiduciary duty”.

Amy was featured as one of Legalweek’s 10 ‘Stars’ of the junior commercial bar in 2014, described as “the real deal” and “a talented silk in the making”.

Previous directory entries include: “superb”, “super-talented”, “highly sought after”, with “an extraordinary ability”, “[practising] beyond her level of call”, “absolutely fantastic”, “experienced beyond her years”, “somebody to watch”, a “real star” who is “dazzling everyone in sight”, “phenomenally bright”, “fantastically hardworking”, “extremely astute”, an “exceptional drafter”, “she just does not drop the ball”, and “clients really feel she is fighting for them”.
