‘She’s very cool,’ says one lawyer of Lucy Stone KC, QEB’s eminent matrimonial silk.
Her office has an ounce of rock ’n’ roll, much 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 band's instantly recognisable lips logo.
Stone has had a number of landmark cases during her career, 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 relationship-generated disadvantage’.
