Robert Amey

Called to the Bar 2012

Robert specialises in business and finance law, with a particular emphasis on insolvency/restructuring, banking law, company law and general commercial litigation. He is ranked as a Leading Junior by Legal 500 in three different practice areas: Insolvency, Civil Fraud and Offshore.  He is also ranked by Chambers & Partners for Restructuring/Insolvency.

The core of Robert’s practice is insolvency/restructuring work, particularly in relation to banks and other large corporates.  Robert enjoys both the highly technical nature of this work, and the challenging factual disputes which often arise, involving allegations of fraud or breach of duty against company directors and professional service providers.  He also accepts instructions in relation to high-value bankruptcies.

Robert has also appeared in a number of high-value commercial trials and arbitrations outside of the insolvency context, most notably the 4-month trial of Primeo v HSBC, a US$2 billion claim which involved the cross-examination of 28 witnesses. Robert is equally comfortable with appellate advocacy, having appeared numerous times (both led and on his own) in the Court of Appeal and other appellate tribunals.

Although he predominantly practises in England, Robert has also been admitted to practise in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and the Dubai International Financial Centre, and around half of his clients are based outside the UK.
