Lucy joined JMW in December 2023 as an Associate in the Business Crime and Regulatory team. Lucy has extensive experience representing clients in complex and high-profile criminal and regulatory matters.

Lucy has particular experience in:

  • Representing clients in a wide range of criminal offences including matters such as fraud, terrorism, misconduct in public office and sexual offences. Lucy has successfully secured acquittals and the discontinuance of prosecutions for clients before trial.
  • Broad experience of representing clients in police station interviews in serious and complex cases.
  • Representing police officers throughout both criminal and misconduct investigations and proceedings.
  • Advising designated persons who have been sanctioned by the UK government, with a particular focus on the Russian sanctions regime.
  • Representing clients in extradition matters, cases raising issues related to mutual legal assistance and applications to INTERPOL for the deletion of Red Notices.
  • Advising clients in investigations brought by regulatory bodies including the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.
  • Assisting on serious criminal investigations such as a large-scale fraud and money laundering investigation by the Serious Fraud Office.

Prior to joining JMW, Lucy trained and qualified with a criminal defence firm primarily representing police officers accused of crime and gross misconduct. Lucy subsequently broadened her practice to focus on white collar crime and extradition in a boutique firm.

Lucy has a first-class degree in Law and Criminology from the University of Sheffield. She was awarded the Centre for Criminological Research Prize and the David Hoath Memorial Prize, both for academic excellence, upon graduation.
