Widely recognised as one of the country’s leading young family lawyers, Lucy Loizou undertakes complex financial disputes. She has worked on a number of cases involving HNW issues, several of which with have involved a significant international dimension.
‘I’m dynamic, forward thinking and a committed family lawyer,’ Loizou tells Spear’s. ‘I adopt a conciliatory approach when required, but when cases are within the Court process, I am tenacious and fight hard for clients to get the best possible outcome.’
She has enjoyed a ‘successful and industrious’ year acting for many high profile clients, with an undoubted highlight being the settling of a long-running HNW case spanning multiple jurisdictions. She describes the outcome of the case as ‘excellent’. Spanning four years, the result boosted both her and the firm’s profile.
She has also continued to build and expand on her profile as a ‘go-to lawyer’ for cases involving a Greek and Cypriot element.
‘This includes attending numerous networking events, hosting my “Family Law Show” on London Greek Radio, and also meeting the President of Cyprus in February 2019,’ the lawyer explains.
‘My fortnightly radio show has aired since 2010, and involves me answering questions on family law matters to assist the Greek-Cypriot community’. In 2019 Loizou also spoke to delegates from around the world at the annual Private Banking and Wealth Management Conference in Cyprus.
Both Loizou and the firm are exceptionally well-positioned to deal with the difficult international issues that can arise from divorce and separation cases when it comes to talking practicalities. She is a part of a strong team including specialist accredited English lawyers and arbitrators, embedded in an international network of specialists around the world. The firm’s approach is to always settle cases through a ‘sensitive, proactive, settlement -focused and conciliatory’ manner.
Elsewhere, Loizou is noticing that the uncertainty surrounding Brexit is causing clients to adopt a cautious approach. ‘The market is relatively static at the moment, as people are waiting to see what happens following our departure from the EU,’ she explains.
Renowned for resolving cases with speed, effectiveness and discretion, the lawyer counts a number of high-profile figures among her clientele, and has advised clients with difficult corporate and trust interests. She also has had experience of dealing with challenging partnership issues.
