Biography

Amy is the chair of the firm’s Antitrust, Trade and Commercial Litigation Department. She has previously served on the firm’s Executive Committee, on the Board of Partners, as the Managing Partner of the McGuireWoods Chicago office, as co-chair of the Life Sciences Industry Group and as co-chair of the firm’s Recruiting Committee.



Amy has extensive experience handling criminal and civil antitrust matters for international and U.S. companies, as well as individuals, in federal and state courts and arbitration tribunals throughout the United States. Her cases involve international cartels, price fixing, market allocation, bid rigging, tying arrangements, bundling, monopolization, attempted monopolization, and Robinson-Patman Act claims. In addition, she regularly advises clients on distribution relationships, compliance matters, and other antitrust issues related to day-to-day business operations. She is a frequent author and speaker on numerous topics relating to antitrust, government investigations, compliance issues, and the life sciences industry. She also has designed and implemented numerous national and international compliance programs.

Amy’s practice also focuses on complex commercial litigation, including class actions, breach of contract actions, commodities litigation, multi-district litigation, healthcare litigation, civil RICO litigation, real estate disputes, and intellectual property disputes. She has first chaired arbitrations, trials and appeals, and recently argued an appeal before the Eleventh Circuit. Her arbitration practice includes international, domestic, and class action arbitrations before various tribunals.

Notably, as part of the McGuireWoods team, Amy helped secure a May 2010 victory on behalf of Jo Tankers before the U.S. Supreme Court in Stolt-Nielsen v. Animalfeeds Int’l, 130 S. Ct. 1758 (2010), which held that the respondents could not be compelled under the Federal Arbitration Act to engage in class arbitration where the arbitration agreement was silent on the issue of class arbitration.
