Amy’s work focuses on complex commercial litigation, with an emphasis on antitrust. She represents Fortune 500 companies in antitrust matters as plaintiffs and defendants in both federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels, and in other high stakes commercial disputes.

Clients rely on Amy’s ability to develop and evaluate the facts and legal theories in cases, and to assess their relative strengths and weaknesses. She provides strategic guidance to achieve favorable outcomes in all phases of litigation, from preparing or responding to a complaint through appeal. 

In addition to her litigation work, Amy provides strategic counseling to clients concerning, for example, ways in which they can improve their practices based on lessons learned during the course of litigation, as well as the contours of the attorney-client and work product privileges. She also has participated in presentations to the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission on antitrust issues on behalf of clients. Her antitrust work has been recognized by Global Competition Review
