Lucia is a Partner in our Family Law team in Edinburgh. 

Individuals and Families expertise

She is an accredited specialist in family law, and has particular expertise in resolving financial disputes arising from the breakdown of a relationship. 

She frequently acts in cases involving high-value assets such as businesses or farms, and in cases with an international aspect. 

Lucia understands that separation can be a stressful experience, and aims to support clients as best she can through the process.  She successfully resolves many of her cases through negotiation, but also has considerable experience litigating in Court. 

She is a dual-qualified lawyer (England/Wales and Scotland) and helps clients in complex cross-border cases.  She advises on matters of jurisdiction, and has acted for clients based in the U.S., Asia, Middle East and Australia, including ex-pats.  
Lucia regularly advises upon preparation of pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation disputes and child-related issues including international relocation. 

As well as acting for clients in Scottish cases, Lucia also represents clients in cases relating to divorce and finance proceeding under English law or in the English courts.
