Senior Costs Lawyer
Since starting her costs career in 2008, Lucy has developed a reputation for her ability to understand claims alongside the commercial needs of her clients; her attention to detail; and proactive approach.
An active member of the local legal community, Lucy is former chair of the Women Lawyers Division and remains on the committee; she is also a member of Bristol Law Society. Lucy splits her time between Bristol and London and is a member of London Young Lawyers Group and the Civil Litigation Section of the Law Society.
Over the last few years Lucy has taken over primary responsibility for much of the training provided by Paragon Costs and has been a guest speaker at Bristol Law Society's Dispute Resolution Conference as well as at Paragon's own annual conference, run in conjunction with Guildhall Chambers. Lucy spends a lot of her time providing in-house training to clients and non-clients alike, on a number of costs related subjects.
Lucy is experienced in dealing with all areas of costs and has recently specialised in commercial, and banking and finance litigation having undertaken work for a number of leading banks. She has also dealt with costs in multi-million pound personal injury and clinical negligence cases.
Acting for both paying and receiving parties, Lucy is highly skilled in drafting bills and statements of costs but now focusses the majority of her time on preparing complex costs budgets, undertaking high value paying party work, and providing bespoke advice to clients.
Lucy’s knowledge and experience means she can be relied on to achieve the best possible results. She is skilled in negotiating settlements, but also in recognising when negotiations are no longer effective and the court's input is required. Her sound understanding of accounts means that Lucy is able to assess the commercial implications of settlements for her clients. Recently, Lucy has prepared a significant costs budget and provided advice to her clients in a matter which spans two jurisdictions and where costs were incurred both in the UK and abroad.
