Kiersten Lucas


A highly regarded member of our elite-ranked team, Kiersten has extensive experience advising clients across the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious employment matters. Clients greatly value her ability to understand their business or personal imperatives, and to work determinedly alongside them to deliver tailored commercial and pragmatic solutions.

Kiersten has extensive experience advising clients on all aspects of the employment lifecycle. Her particular expertise is in high value litigation (having led many cases in the High Court and Employment Tribunal), remuneration arrangements, senior executive appointments and terminations, restrictive covenants/protection of confidential information and advising firms and individuals on the employment law aspects and implications of regulatory contraventions (including LIBOR and FX manipulation and market abuse).

Her work regularly involves matters spanning multiple jurisdictions, including parallel litigation or investigations outside the UK, advising on complex employment/severance arrangements for senior executives whose activities span domestic and foreign regulatory jurisdictions and cross-border business sales and restructurings.
Clients, colleagues and counsel alike value her ability and willingness to give clear strategic advice from the outset, and the energy and commitment she devotes to delivering commercial, pragmatic solutions tailored to their needs.

Kiersten's bespoke client briefings and training sessions (including those she co-authors and presents with our other practice areas and international offices) are very well received.
