Role at Major Family Law
Lucinda joined Major Family Law in 2013 and is the Head of our Divorce and Finance Department.
Her role encompasses all aspects of family law including divorce, separation and preparing pre-nuptial and post nuptial agreements. Lucinda has a particular interest and focus on financial settlements arising from relationship breakdowns, and much of her work in this field involves business interests, trusts and complex asset valuations and high value pensions.
Lucinda is also an extremely experienced and adept practitioner in children matters, dealing regularly with residence and contact arrangements and the relocation of children, both within the UK and overseas.
Lucinda has practiced exclusively in family law since 2000 and approached every case with diligence and careful attention to detail. She is recognised for her pragmatism and her judgement, honed over 20 years of experience of dealing with varied and challenging matters, enables her to provide constructive advice to achieve the best outcomes for her clients.
Recognised by Legal 500 as a skilled advocate, Lucinda has considerable experience in litigating within the court system but also retains a keen interest in alternative dispute resolution methods, such as arbitration, enhancing her ability to adopt the best process for individual clients and cases. Lucinda has acted in a number of high net worth court cases and arbitrations, and her cases include a well-known TV personality and Premier League footballer.
In the latest edition of the Legal 500 Lucinda is listed as having significant expertise in high value financial cases, again with an international element. She was also promoted to Legal Director in January 2018. Lucinda is listed in the Legal 500 as a Recommended Lawyer.
Outside of work
Lucinda lives with her husband and two sons. When not organising them, she enjoys countryside walks with her Jack Russell Terrier, and cricket (spectating – not participating – in the latter!) or a blissful quiet few minutes with a book.
