Lucy is an Associate in our business crime and compliance team.

She provides pragmatic advice on issues relating to financial crime, confiscation and asset recovery, acting for a range of individuals and corporates that face allegations of criminal and regulatory offences.

With extensive experience of advising on the complex (and often multi-jurisdictional) financial implications that arise under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) in relation to all criminal activity, Lucy is a true expert in her field. Prior to joining Brabners, Lucy served as head of the proceeds of crime department at a well-respected firm of solicitors in Leeds.

Lucy has defended multifarious applications brought under POCA, with experience in defending applications for Confiscation Orders, Enforcement Applications, Account Freezing Orders and Property Freezing Orders in cases brought by the Crown Prosecution Service, National Crime Agency, Environment Agency and Trading Standards. She has also represented third parties in Confiscation Proceedings, recognising the interplay of legal disciplines in this complex area of work.

Lucy has further worked on fraud and money laundering prosecutions brought by the CPS and has experience in representing individuals in criminal proceedings when charged with financial offences.

A member of the Proceeds of Crime Lawyers Association, Lucy joined Brabners in 2023 and is based in our Leeds office.
