A stalwart member of the Family Law Bar and a silk since 2001, Lucy Stone’s recent work shows the remarkable breadth of her skills. One case involved assets in excess of £500 million and ‘just about every complex area of family law’, including overseas trusts and special contribution. Meanwhile, a case in Gibraltar required ‘the untangling of a hugely valuable corporate structure’. ‘Family law requires an ability to bring legal order into the emotional maelstrom which is family breakdown,’ Stone tells Spear’s. With more than 30 years’ experience, she is well placed to note that ‘nothing is ever black and white’. As a barrister, she says her role needs ‘a willingness to listen, an acute eye for detail and a comprehensive knowledge of multiple areas of law’.
