About Lucy

Lucy Gibson is a private client trust and tax lawyer. She primarily advises wealthy private clients and trustees on the establishment and restructuring of family and charitable trusts for devolution purposes and tax mitigation.

Lucy's practice is a broad one, advising private clients and trustees, often internationally-based, on a variety of litigious and non-contentious matters including trust variations and compromise proceedings (both contested and consensual), trustee removal proceedings and contested wills.

Lucy has been consistently recognised as a leading individual in her field in Chambers & Partners which has described Harcus Sinclair in recent editions, as a “popular choice for complex wealth management issues” and Lucy Gibson as “widely acclaimed for international trust and estate law expertise,” and "extremely able, highly intelligent"

She is also often asked to advise trustees in the context of claims against them or when trustees become involved, possibly unwillingly, in proceedings ancillary to divorce in London. Lucy is frequently instructed by other solicitors and accountancy firms to give independent advice to particular family members or a specific beneficial class in complex trust and probate cases. She also provides bespoke trust drafting services to a number of trust companies, often international, and financial institutions.
