Hando

Amy practices in a broad range of commercial law, regulatory matters and white collar crime.

Before coming to the Bar, Amy was the Senior Associate to the Honourable Justice Croft of the Supreme Court of Victoria, where she assisted his Honour on a broad range of commercial matters, including matters of taxation and arbitration. 

Prior to her time at the Court, Amy worked at Robertson Hyetts in Bendigo.  Her diverse practice was primarily commercial litigation which involved disputes relating to contractual matters, banking and finance, securities, bankruptcy, insolvency as well as a range of other areas.  In her time in Bendigo, Amy also acted in local government and planning related regulatory prosecutions. 

In practice, Amy regularly appeared in the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court and VCAT as well as various other regional courts and tribunals. 

Amy has a particular interest in the areas of: 

  • banking and finance;
  • building and construction;
  • commercial arbitration;
  • commercial fraud and white collar crime;
  • defamation and media law;
  • property and leasing law;
  • regulatory investigations and prosecutions; and
  • shipping and maritime law.

Whilst at the Court, Amy was involved in many matters heard electronically. Amy gained exposure to the use of technology in managing matters ranging from a day or two, up to matters running for several weeks. 

Amy is reading with Andrew Kirby and her senior mentors are Chris Winneke QC and Sally Flynn QC.
