Lucy, who has been practising in the Island for almost five years, has experience in a broad range of financing matters, including securitisation and structured finance deals. She also works on real estate finance and fund finance matters.

Lucy trained and qualified with BPE Solicitors LLP in Cheltenham before moving offshore.

She joins the team led by partner Nigel Weston and group partners Jon Le Rossignol and Julia Keppe.

Nigel said: “We continue to grow and build out our team in response to increasing client demand. Lucy’s experience across the full range of financing matters under Jersey law makes her an excellent addition to our busy team.”
