Solicitor Manchester Clinical Negligence
Lucy is a solicitor in the Clinical Negligence department. In addition to managing her own caseload, she assists partner Sally Leonards with complex and high value brain and spinal injury cases.
Lucy graduated from Lancaster University in 2015 with First Class Honours in Law. As part of her degree she completed a 15,000 word thesis with a focus on Articles 5, 6, and 15 of the European Convention on Human Rights and attained the highest mark possible. She then went on to complete her Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School and gained a Distinction. Lucy is also a past winner of the Law Society’s national annual essay competition.
Before qualifying as a solicitor, Lucy worked within the department as both a paralegal and trainee solicitor. She therefore has a wide range of experience and has developed a particular interest in cases involving stillbirth, mismanagement of cardiac conditions, and cases where psychiatric injury has arisen as a result of substandard care.
Lucy is not one to shy away from a charity challenge, having ‘fire walked’, completed the Yorkshire and National Three Peaks, and assisted a wheelchair user to reach the top of Mount Snowdon.
Outside of work Lucy enjoys gardening, pencil sketching, and photography. She also volunteers as a mentor with Young Legal Aid Lawyers.
