Amy is also recommended in Chambers and Partners for public international law (2014, Band 1) as a junior who has a “very good academic knowledge, but is practical with it and an efficient worker”, “unflappable” and “a good team player”. Chambers and Partners (2013) reported that “her notable prowess in this area sees her caseload span diverse areas such as sanctions matters, human rights and investment treaty disputes”. Amy is also recommended in Chambers and Partners (2012) as a "very bright and hard-working" public international law junior.

In 2013, Amy was named as one of the ten “Stars of the Bar” under ten years call by Legal Week (November 2013). Amy is described as "extremely easy to work with... very keen to get on with the job in hand". The publication quotes instructing solicitors as having described Amy as "bright and very responsive", with one lawyer stating "whether in terms of skeleton arguments or longer written pleadings, Amy's written advocacy is first rate," adding that "her legal and research skills are excellent and exceptional in terms of mastering and getting to the heart of issues".

Amy was appointed Junior Counsel to the Crown (the Attorney General’s Public International Law C Panel) in 2014, and Junior Counsel to the Crown (the Attorney General's London C Panel) in 2013. She is also on the panel of EHRC (Equality and Human Rights Commission) Counsel.
