Lucy Colter named one of Legal Week’s 2017 Stars at the Bar

Lucy Colter has been named as one of 12 Stars at the Bar by Legal Week. Lucy’s entry, based on references from leaders and solicitors, states that those that work with her “describe her as “a brilliant advocate”, “one of the most talented barristers I have ever seen,”; “really skilled – both as a junior being led, and on her own”, and “very cool under pressure.” She sees off difficult opponents with both dignity and steel according to her peers and attracts judicial praise as she does so. Her written work has seen her draft “highly complex and difficult pleadings and submissions in technically complex and legally challenging cases, which are outstanding”, while managing the cross-examination of multiple construction experts, evidencing her “ability [to] assimilate and use effectively complex factual and technical material”. One lawyer says “some of the cross-examination material she prepared, is amongst the best I have seen.””
