Law firm Furley Page further strengthens market-leading dispute resolution team

Furley Page has appointed one of its most talented newly qualified solicitors to its Dispute Resolution Team, which is regarded as one of the best in the business and is ranked alongside some of the biggest law firms in the South East.

Lucy Waldron, aged 25, has excelled during her two years spent training with the firm, which is recognised by independent legal guides Chambers UK and The Legal 500. She now specialises in dealing with a range of commercial disputes including contract, company and partnership disputes, intellectual property and construction. Lucy also deals with matters concerning disputed Wills, Trusts and Probate.

Chambers UK recently described Furley Page’s Dispute Resolution Team as “highly respected” and “a regional firm that really punches above its weight”. It is now ranked among the top national and regional heavyweights in the South East, covering Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Peter Hawkes, Senior Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution, who is personally ranked by Chambers UK, is praised by clients as “very thorough, knowledgeable and practical”. The team’s George Crofton-Martin is described as “really thorough and a pleasure to work with”.

Peter says the decision to appoint Lucy reflects Furley Page’s commitment to retaining promising young talent. “Lucy is an exceptional young lawyer and is already proving to be an invaluable asset to the team,” he adds.

“The dispute resolution team is one of the top teams at Furley Page. It has developed an enviable reputation for the depth of expertise held by our highly experienced specialists, and with the addition of talented new lawyers like Lucy I’m confident it will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Lucy completed her GCSE and A levels at Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar in Canterbury before studying for her LLB Law degree at Essex University in 2009, graduating with First Class Honours. Lucy then studied the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Guildford, attaining a Distinction, before commencing her training contract at Furley Page in September 2013.

Lucy, who lives in Canterbury, is a member of the Kent Law Society General Purposes Committee and volunteers with her local Contact the Elderly group. She enjoys running challenges, particularly in aid of local charity events, and netball.
