Lucy has been praised by Chambers for “standing out as a solicitor who genuinely understands how technology businesses work” and as an “Associate to Watch in the IT Sector”. She was also hailed by Legal 500 as a “Next Generation Lawyer for IT and telecoms in the North”.
Lucy, whose previous roles include working in-house at FTSE 100 software giant Sage, joins Newcastle-based Sintons as a Senior Associate.
Her professional memberships include the Society of Computers and the Law and the Chartered Institute of IT and Lucy is well known and respected in North East tech circles for her sector-specific work and knowledge.
Lucy’s appointment further strengthens the Commercial team at Sintons, which is recognised by Legal 500 as a “regional heavyweight”, at a time of strong growth for the firm, underpinned by client service excellence and with a focus on the recruitment and retention of outstanding legal talent.
Lucy said: “I am very pleased to move to Sintons, a growing and ambitious law firm whose specialism in commercial work is well known across the North of England. In a region as dynamic as the North East, our tech scene is developing at a phenomenal rate, and through the combination of my specialism in the tech sector and the support and outstanding capability of the wider corporate and commercial team at Sintons, we have a strong proposition to offer to businesses of all kinds, and especially to fast-growing tech companies.”
Karen Simms, Partner and Head of Corporate and Commercial at Sintons, said: “Lucy is a highly respected lawyer, whose recognition by both Legal 500 and Chambers (the go-to guides to the legal market) speaks volumes about her deep and genuine knowledge and understanding of the tech sector and her excellent reputation.
“As a business which understands that people are central to our continuing success, I am delighted that Lucy has chosen to join Sintons, and I look forward to working with her.”
