Lucy Stewart-Gould


Spear's Review

A popular lawyer among HNW businesspeople (and their spouses), Lucy Stewart-Gould regularly acts for well-known figures in entertainment and sporting arenas.

She says the potential, or actual, media interest in clients’ personal lives during her cases ‘adds a layer of complexity to an already stressful situation. Ultimately, these clients need someone savvy, discreet and effective – which is what we do at Stewarts.’

All of Stewart-Gould’s cases involve connections with at least one other jurisdiction and, for the majority, multiple jurisdictions. Highlights include one judgment in which she and her team successfully defended a client against claims of a sham trust, and another in which she acted for a ‘very high-profile’ individual in a private children matter across numerous countries.

Having practised in Hong Kong, Lucy retains good connections to that jurisdiction as well as having particular experience of Anglo-French cases.

The clients with whom Lucy works have complex lives and they require effective and strategic advice. Her aim is to cut through the complexity and to focus, not on every issue, but on the fights that matter to achieve the best possible outcomes for clients.
