Lucy Greenwood is a Partner at The International Family Law Group LLP.
Lucy has a broad depth of experience and knowledge in resolving family issues for a huge variety of national and international families having specialised exclusively in the field of family law for over 20 years.
Prior to joining iFLG, Lucy worked as a solicitor in a large City firm. Lucy regularly deals with complicated financial cases many of which have an international element where tactical decisions, balanced against pragmatism and the client’s wishes, must be taken very early in the case. Lucy’s cases, often high net worth, involve dealing with off-shore trusts, corporate issues, tracing assets abroad, international enforcement issues and pension sharing (both national and international).
Lucy is a specialist in the drafting of pre-nuptial and post–nuptial agreements having done many such agreements involving different parts of the world. Many of the cases Lucy has handled have necessitated at least initial involvement of advice and sometimes possibly the joinder of lawyers in other jurisdictions. Lucy is also hugely experienced in jurisdictional disputes.
Lucy handles cases concerning all aspects of family breakdown. She is conscientious, meticulous and always ensures her clients are protected as much as possible from the rigors of litigation. Where a conciliatory approach is possible, Lucy will find it, but similarly she has the knowledge and experience to advise when a court-based route is required. Much of Lucy’s work in forum cases requires immediate and urgent action to protect a client’s position.
Lucy writes for websites, legal journals and presents seminars and webinars for the legal profession. She gives lectures both here and abroad, including Spain, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Washington DC and Bangkok and has commented for national and international media.
In The Legal 500 2019 Lucy is described as 'accurate, commercial and fast', in 2017 she was described as 'outstanding' and in 2016 she was ranked as a 'Leading Individual'.
