Amy practices in general commercial law, including contracts, business sales and acquisitions, wills and estate planning, probate and trusts.

Amy appreciates that commercial transactions extend beyond the legalities and works closely with both clients and third parties to ensure that matters are dealt with practically and expeditiously.

Amy has a particular interest in property law and is routinely involved in all aspects of property transactions including the preparation of, and review and advice on, contracts for sale, transfer duty advice, due diligence and settlements. Amy acts for a wide range of clients on matters ranging from the sale and purchase of residential property though to the acquisition and disposal of large scale commercial properties, farms and vineyard properties. Amy has a strong working knowledge of the ins and outs of the Office of State Revenue and Landgate, who both play key roles in property transactions.

Amy has also developed a practice around personal property securities law. Following the introduction of the Personal Property Securities Act, Amy has worked with clients to ensure that their business practices, including their terms and conditions, are up to date and their security interests are protected.

Amy is a member of the Law Society of Western Australia, the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and the Anglo-Australasian Lawyers Society (Western Australia) Inc.
