Cunningham Legal was founded by Amy Cunningham, who studied at Oxford University and then trained and qualified as an employment lawyer at CMS Cameron McKenna in 2007.

She remained at the firm for 9 years, gaining a wealth of experience of advising both employers and employees on the full range of employment law and HR issues.  During this time she was seconded twice to work in a global investment bank, first as an employment lawyer in the Legal team and later as an employee relations specialist within HR, which gave her a new perspective on the issues faced by both employers and employees in practice, and a fresh approach to her work as an employment lawyer. 

Recognising that there was a gap in the market for a dynamic and entrepreneurial new law firm focused on providing the same high quality advice as larger firms but at a fraction of the cost, Amy founded Cunningham Legal in 2015.

Due to her track record and unwavering commitment to delivering value for clients, most of the firm’s work comes from recommendations from Amy’s previous clients and from referrals from other lawyers.

Huw Price joined Cunningham Legal in October 2016 having previously worked alongside Amy in the employment team at CMS Cameron McKenna LLP.  

Huw trained and qualified as an employment lawyer at CMS in 2003 and was subsequently promoted to the role of Senior Associate.  He has more than 13 years' experience acting for a broad range of clients in numerous sectors and has specialist expertise in advising on a wide variety of contentious and non-contentious employment matters.  Huw is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and has been recognised in the Legal 500 as a ‘valuable resource’ for clients.

The normal hourly rate for Amy Cunningham or Huw Price is £350 plus VAT

My experience working with Cunningham Legal was entirely positive. They helped me navigate what could have been an unpleasant situation and achieved a successful result. They were straight to the point, managed expectations and were economical too, always being realistic with time scales. Cunningham Legal would be my first port of call in the future and I highly recommend them

At a very stressful time in my life, having been made redundant after 15 years, Amy was a vital link in helping me manoeuvre my way through the somewhat overwhelming mountain of paperwork and process that this entailed. We got through it thanks to her cool head and undoubted expertise.

Cunningham Legal advised me throughout my recent redundancy process - Having not been through this process before I found the advice provided to be focused upon my situation and easily understood. The whole discussion was made a lot easier by their experience, support and guidance - at the time this was hugely appreciated. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

Amy is an outstanding employment lawyer. She is very practical and solution focussed, with an eye for detail. She stands out from others not only due to her fresh approach and thorough consideration of tactics, but most importantly she is a people person as much as a legal adviser.

Amy was very professional, knowledgeable and always provided timely responses. This, combined with her personal service and empathetic approach, makes her stand out from the crowd. I would highly recommend her services.

Amy was a great source of advice for me at a very difficult time. Her considered opinion and clarification of the legalities of the situation I was in, meant I was able to decide what would be my preferred outcome; and she gave the confidence to obtain it. Her efficiency and quick responses avoided protracted negotiations.
I would not hesitate to recommend Amy’s advice and services to anyone. We all hope never to find ourselves in a situation where we need these services, but I would want Amy on my side again were there ever a ‘next time’
