Amelia Clegg


Amelia Clegg concentrates her practice on general litigation matters.

Amelia studied Classics at the University of Oxford before completing her English legal training in London, where she then practiced as a barrister (no longer practicing). She completed her pupillage at 23 Essex Street, London before accepting tenancy there. Amelia prosecuted and defended in criminal cases in bench and jury courts. She also acted as sole/first chair for both the prosecution and the defense in bench trials across a broad range of offenses, including witness intimidation.

Amelia also completed a lengthy secondment with Baker & Partners, a litigation boutique in Jersey, Channel Islands, where she gained experience in offshore litigation. Amelia assisted at very short notice with a successful application for an ex parte freezing injunction and was retained to work on the subsequent U.S. $12 million breach of contract claim. During her secondment, Amelia gained experience in judicial review applications, cross-border litigation, and anti-money laundering law.

Amelia came to the United States to complete her L.L.M at the University of Pennsylvania Law School as a Thouron Fellow. During her L.L.M., Amelia served as an associate editor of Penn Law’s Journal of International Law and was a student member of the New York City Bar International Law Committee. She was a member of the Penn Law Acapellants and a judge for the annual Quaker Mock Trial Competition.

Amelia served as a law clerk at Blank Rome before joining as an associate.
