Amy Scollan joined our family law team as an associate five years ago. She has extensive technical knowledge in both general and international family law and deals with all aspects of family law, specialising in complex private law, Children Act disputes, unmarried couple property ownership disputes and matrimonial finance disputes on divorce.
Amy was Shortlisted for the Law Society’s Excellence Award - Junior Lawyer of the year 2010 and is considered to be fast emerging as one of the top family lawyers in Leeds and Yorkshire. Last year she achieved a distinction in her Masters in International Law and is a member of the British-German Jurists’ Association.
Employment law specialist Deborah Warren joined Clarion as a trainee in 2007 and qualified as an Associate in 2009. Deborah deals with employment matters of all kinds for employers, including day to day advice regarding discrimination, absence management, whistleblowing, protected conversations and the application of TUPE as well as the defence of employment tribunal claims. However, much of Deborah’s work consists of large-scale complex projects, including the management of holiday pay issues, restructures, collective redundancies and changes to terms and conditions. Deborah has developed particular expertise in the complicated field of the application of employment law in insolvency situations and brings a commercial common sense approach to such circumstances.
Roger Hutton, managing partner, commented: “Amy and Deborah have both provided consistently excellent levels of service and their practical, solutions-focused approach makes a vital contribution to their clients. As a firm, we place great importance on supporting our team and enabling colleagues to progress within their field of expertise.”
