1 Garden Court

Practice Overview

Lucy specialises exclusively in children law, in the public and private law fields. She is described in Legal 500 as ‘An outstanding junior, who exhibits a blend of natural talent, hard work and strong client care’ and by Chambers and Partners as ‘phenomenal. She’ll be a QC one day. She makes others look inefficient and has an incredibly good way about her. She’s painstakingly thorough, does brilliant notes and is just fantastic.’

In the public law arena she is instructed on behalf of parents, Local Authorities and children and frequently appears in cases involving serious allegations of domestic violence, non-accidental injury, children with complex needs and more recently the radicalisation of children.

In the private law field, she has extensive experience of complex child arrangements disputes and is regularly instructed in intractable cases, as well as having experience acting on behalf of the child and in cases involving alternative families.
