"...[others] and Lucy Penn – my experience with working all three is very positive. They are constantly on top of everything, always well informed, and don’t mind working in evenings or weekends if required. Their analyses, arguments, suggestions, etc. are usually very good as far as I (not being a lawyer myself) can judge on this." (Legal 500 2021)
