The Spear’s Indices
Selected Family Law Barristers
‘She’s very cool,’ says one lawyer of Lucy Stone, QEB’s eminent matrimonial silk, whose office has an ounce of rock ’n’ roll like her reputation in the family law field. On the wall sits a thank you plaque from a Rolling Stone she represented – emblazoned with the instantly recognisable insignia of Mick Jagger’s mouth.
Stone had a number of landmark cases last year, including the reported XW v XH in the Court of Appeal, where a special contribution argument was overturned. Another was RC v JC, where a woman was awarded £400,000 compensation for giving up her legal career for her family, which was ruled ‘a relationshipgenerated disadvantage’.
