Amy Pettitt Fraser Dawbarns

Amy Pettitt

Amy qualified as a solicitor in August 2009 and spent her early legal career working in general practice advising clients on family law, conveyancing and private client.  This gave Amy a wide range of knowledge and a client focused approach as she was able to see her clients through every major event in their life.

It became very difficult to maintain the required level of expertise with such a varied range of work.  Amy joined Fraser Dawbarns in 2012 so that she could specialise in private client work which she had always had a particular fondness for.  Amy now advises on all aspects of private client work including Wills, Powers of Attorney, Deputyship, Trusts, Taxation and Estates.

Amy’s has always had a particular interest in taxation and trusts.  Amy enrolled on the STEP Certificate in Trusts and Estates course shortly after joining Fraser Dawbarns in order to gain a greater knowledge of this complex area.  Amy became a full STEP member in 2015 having achieved a distinction on the course and now mostly advises on trust creation, administration and taxation.

In early 2019 Amy also achieved a distinction in the STEP Advanced Certificate in Trust Disputes.

In her spare time, Amy loves to travel but when she is at home she likes reading, spending time with friends and walking her dog in the countryside.
