Years of experience


About their firm

Amy Cunningham studied at Oxford University and then trained and qualified as an employment lawyer at CMS Cameron McKenna in 2007, before founding Cunningham Legal.

Amy remained at CMS for 9 years, gaining a wealth of experience of advising both employers and employees on the full range of employment law and HR issues.  During this time she was seconded twice to work in a global investment bank, first as an employment lawyer in the Legal team and later as an employee relations specialist within HR, which gave her a new perspective on the issues faced by both employers and employees in practice, and a fresh approach to her work as an employment lawyer. 

Recognising that there was a gap in the market for a dynamic and entrepreneurial new law firm focused on providing the same high quality advice as larger firms but at a fraction of the cost, Amy founded Cunningham Legal in 2015.

Due to her track record and unwavering commitment to delivering value for clients, most of the firm’s work comes from recommendations from Amy’s previous clients and from referrals from other lawyers.

Amy understood exactly what I needed, she was great. I was a little nervous of engaging a solicitor online, but the process was easy and smooth. I would use this service again.

Amy was incredibly responsive and made herself available to me even at odd hours to help me address an urgent issue. I am very appreciative of her flexibility and expertise in assisting me in navigating UK employment matters from the U.S. perspective. I am very pleased to have Amy to consult with on future matters and greatly appreciate her responsiveness, attention to detail, experience level, and flexibility. Highly recommend!

Amy provided a pair of employment contracts for my small start-up business. She was very friendly, quick working, and through a few phone calls got to understand our requirements very well. She was also able to explain legal issues very clearly and concisely. All in all a great service.
