Position

Lucy Taylor became a tenant in Chambers in 2018 after completing her pupillage at Albion. Her pupillage covered all areas of chambers work and her supervisors were drawn from the employment, crime and family teams. Lucy practises in these primary areas and has begun to develop her profile in Court of Protection matters as part of this growing team. Lucy is instructed for both prosecution and defence in Magistrates’ and Crown Courts across the West Country. This has given her a broad foundation in criminal litigation and court advocacy, including being instructed in Crown Court jury trials. Her instructing solicitors have particularly noted her down-to-earth approach and her real expertise and talent in dealing with youths, vulnerable witnesses and clients. Lucy has a keen interest in cases with a modern-slavery aspect and delivers seminars on the subject. She is a CPS Grade 2 prosecutor. Lucy has a growing employment practice and is instructed by claimants and respondents in equal measure. She has garnered a national practice over the last year, having been instructed for cases in Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds covering a wide range of issues. Lucy’s Court of Protection case-load is increasing, appearing throughout the West Country either in-person or as part of telephone hearings. Lucy’s practice includes MOJ stage 3 hearings, fast track trials, civil applications, injunctions and small claims.
