About Lucy

Lucy Greenwood is a Partner at The International Family Law Group LLP (iFLG). She has specialised exclusively in the field of family law for approximately 20 years and advises on all aspects of family breakdown.  Prior to joining iFLG Lucy worked in a large City firm.  Most of her work has an international element.  She deals regularly with complicated divorce, jurisdiction and financial cases where action is often needed urgently to seek to secure the best jurisdiction for a client.  Many of her cases involve high net worth individuals and often include consideration of off-shore trusts, companies and their structures, asset tracing, pensions etc . Consequently her work often necessitates advice from lawyers in other jurisdictions and from other professions/disciplines (e.g. accountants, estate specialists, tax planners or property specialists).  Lucy writes for legal journals and she has presented a number of seminar and webinar updates for the legal profession. She has also appeared on TV.
