Amalia Neenan FitzGerald


Amalia is an Associate in our Commercial Litigation & Civil Fraud department.

Her varied civil fraud and commercial litigation work includes bringing civil fraud claims, working on claims for breach of contract, misrepresentation, Sovereign State disputes and cryptocurrency matters.

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.

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 has lectured on this topic on a number of occasions, including in Mauritius as part of an international conference on virtual assets and money laundering, as well as in Cyprus as part of the McNeil International Symposium on Laws and their Applications for Sustainable Development. She regularly co-authors articles in this area and is frequently commissioned by The Times and The Times Brief, having written pieces exploring the legal ramifications of artificial intelligence and emerging new technologies.

Amalia is also the Lead Sex & Gender Ally at the firm.
