Lucy is a Senior Associate solicitor in the Family team. Lucy is also a trained Family Mediator.

Lucy is renowned for her expertise in both financial matters and child law.

Lucy has obtained the Law Society Advanced Accreditation in complex financial settlement and children cases. Lucy is also a Member of Resolution and committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.

With over 15 years’ experience in family law, Lucy can support clients with the resolution of their divorce and on related financial issues including pensions, businesses, and pre-acquired marital wealth.

As a trained family Mediator, Lucy can offer a bespoke mediation service to assist in any children or financial disputes. The sessions can either be remote or face to face at one of our 23 national office locations in the UK. Mediation is a means of resolving disputes in an amicable, non-confrontational manner that meets the needs of both participants. Mediation can often be a quicker, more amicable, and less stressful process than the more traditional route at resolving disputes, such as going to court. Lucy is registered with the Family Mediation Association.

With extensive experience in child arrangement related matters in family disputes, Lucy supports on issues such as residence, contact, prohibited steps, specific issue orders and leave to remove cases. She has worked on complex cases including those with an international dimension and local authority involvement.

Examples of how Lucy has supported clients include:

  • securing a shared care order in relation to the time spent by a father with his children, in a case involving parental alienation by the mother.
  • obtaining a leave to remove order for child to be taken out of the jurisdiction to live abroad; and
  • securing an advantageous financial settlement for a client, in circumstances where her un-matched financial contributions were ‘ring-fenced’ by the court.
  • advising on complex financial issues involving pensions and significant pre-acquired marital wealth
