Lucy Hart, Director
A senior family law solicitor and director of Sinclair Law, Lucy has overseen a period of rapid growth at the Wilmslow-based legal practice.
Under Lucy’s stewardship, Sinclair Law has grown its client base, taken on several new solicitors and, through the acquisition of Nicola J Tiernan Solicitors, expanded into Bramhall.
“The thing I’m probably most proud of is that, while expanding, we’ve managed to hold on to our caring and compassionate approach to family law.
“We’ve had challenges, particularly with the pandemic and remote work, but we’ve still been able to bond as a team and that’s essential if we want to achieve the best results for our clients.
“In November, one of our solicitors Angela managed to convince 13 of us to join in the Wilmslow 10K Festive Charity Run in sub-zero temperatures. I think some of us nearly lost some toes to frostbite, but it was all for a good cause, helping raise money for The Christie.”
Like the rest of the Sinclair team, Lucy is a big advocate of the collaborative approach to family law. This type of approach sees parties try to work together as much as possible to achieve the best outcomes for everyone.
With collaborative family law, cases generally don’t go to court, which means it’s usually more cost-effective and less stressful for family members – particularly children.
Lucy is a Resolution Accredited Collaborative Practitioner, a process that enables separating couples to reach solutions together, helping ease the pain of family breakdown.
“We’re definitely a ‘collaborate-first’ law firm, but this doesn’t mean we’re pushovers.
“If a collaborative solution isn’t possible then we fight incredibly hard to get the best outcome for our clients and we’ve got some of the best solicitors to do this.”
