Lawyer Profile - Lucy Robinson

August 27, 2015


Name:        Lucy Robinson

Position:    FCILEx – Charity Team

How long have you been practising?

For three years as a chartered Legal Executive.

When did you join LLB?

In 1997. Before qualifying I was a legal secretary / paralegal before retraining to qualify as lawyer. Before qualifying I was primarily assisting as a paralegal in the charity team so know my way around charity law well!


What is your role here? 

I’m a charity lawyer and I am the main contact for charities. On a day to day basis I deal with:

  • Charity formations
  • Charity incoporations
  • Advice on charity governance
  • Advice and formation of CICs
  • Charity property

I advise organisations that are household names right down to small not for profit organisations.

Do you have any specialisms in your field?  

The whole charity field is a specialism!  There are very few lawyers that actually have in-depth knowledge of charity law, so the service that I can provide to charities and not for profit organisations is more well-rounded than lawyers who just dabble in the area. Added to the expertise of the other lawyers in Lawson Lewis Blakers I think we can offer a better service to clients under one roof.

What do you do in your spare time? 

Reading, baking cakes, dog walking, running.

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself?

I used to spend my school holidays travelling on merchant ships with my Dad.
