Amanda Hartley - Associate

Amanda is an Associate in our Corporate and Commercial team.

She has wide-ranging commercial skills, gained both in legal practice firms and ‘in-house’ for private businesses. Whether your business is a start-up or a well-established player within its industry sector, Amanda offers pragmatic, well-rounded, clear advice to all levels of management and staff from early beginnings to eventual exit.

Amanda holds an enthusiasm for business outside the purely legal with a strong interest in the economics of the business structure and what drives the commercial endeavour to success. Amanda welcomes working with a wide variety of different industries covering all main sectors, whether within existing ‘accelerator’ business models (for example, as seen over recent years in energy and farming) or within ‘incubators’ (for example, with those within the bio-science R&D medical or environmental sectors). In essence, Amanda can provide small and large businesses alike with a proactive, methodical approach to assisting clients with their general commercial requirements.

Working from our Cambridge office, Amanda is particularly interested in assisting start-up businesses and/or existing businesses who have particular initial or ‘bigger picture’ projects on which they require assistance over a period of time and for which bespoke in-house counsel legal strategies can be developed with senior managers seeking to ensure compliance and effectively manage risk at all levels of the business.

Interpersonally, Amanda enjoys sharing and effectively communicating knowledge and experience, whether for the benefit of clients, students or colleagues, taking a proactive approach to achieving the desired goal collaboratively.

Outside of work, Amanda enjoys family life and the outdoor activities of hiking, cycling, kayaking, swimming and tennis.
