Education:

Lucy read Philosophy at Leeds University, graduating with First Class Honours. She went on to complete her GDL at BPP Law School before completing the LPC, and being awarded a Distinction.

Career:

Lucy undertook her training contract at Vardags alongside studying for her GDL and LPC. This route afforded her invaluable practical experience, giving her the opportunity to assist on high-profile cases such as the multi-jurisdictional divorce case involving former beauty queen, Pauline Chai, alongside her study. Lucy then qualified as a solicitor at the firm, before being promoted to Associate the following year, and then again to Senior Associate. Her current role allows her the privilege of assisting with the training of Vardags’ aspiring lawyers, under Vardags’ Graduate Training Programme.

Testimonials:

"I would recommend Vardags in a heartbeat - from my first point of contact, meeting Simon McKirgan and Lucy Brown, who were so understanding, patient and kind, they have continued to be empathetic throughout. Lucy Brown is an exceptional lawyer whose attention to detail is second to none. She has been my rock, and without her support I would have floundered, but she has kept me positive and strong with her professionalism, eloquence and genuine concern for my welfare. She has carried a lot of my burden and I feel she is always looking after my best interest. I have every faith in her and the team and really appreciate the long hours they have dedicated to the work on my behalf. I have no doubt that I made the right choice when choosing this law firm. The best lawyers with a human touch!" - Ms P (Client)
