Amalia Neenan


Trainee Solicitor

Having started her career at the firm as the Commercial Litigation & Civil Fraud Legal Researcher, Amalia has been exposed to an array of nuanced legal matters which have enabled her to hone her enthusiasm for cryptocurrency-centric litigation and cybercrime in particular, before embarking on her Training Contract.

Called to the Bar of England & Wales in 2015, Amalia then completed a Master’s in International Business Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2019, where she specialised in cryptocurrency frauds and the intersect between the law and technology.

 

Amalia recently lectured on this topic in Cyprus as part of the McNeil International Symposium on Laws and their Applications for Sustainable Development. She also led a webinar for partnership firms throughout the Inn Group Network, discussing the utilisation of existing legal tools to tackle crypto-criminality, and she also co-presented with the Head of International as part of a panel discussing cryptocurrency tracing for the International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators. She regularly co-authors articles in this area.

 

For example, she is frequently commissioned by The Times and The Times Brief, having written pieces exploring the legal ramifications of artificial intelligence and emerging new technologies such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

 

Amalia is also a Professional Mentor for the nationwide charity The Girls’ Network, which partners young women from underprivileged backgrounds with female professionals from a variety of different sectors and industries. Amalia is also the Lead Sex & Gender Ally at the firm.
