Notable cases

Lucy worked closely with her colleague Laura Stocks on the case of H v W [2023] EWFC 120 which deals with enforcement in financial remedy proceedings and an application under the Thwaite Jurisdiction.

"The whole matrimonial team is generally excellent," adding: "They never make you feel as though your concerns are trivial"
