Law firm expands into Cornwall


The Family Law Company is extending its regional presence with the appointment of a new Cornwall-based director.

Lucy Theobald joins the firm to support its strategy to build on its reputation in the south west. While the firm has clients in the county, until now it hasn’t had a full-time presence in Cornwall.

Her specialisms include divorce and finance, plus children matters and domestic abuse for which she has Resolution accreditation. Although permanently based in Cornwall, she will be able to access The Family Law Company’s Plymouth office as needed, while working remotely means she can visit clients in the more rural communities.

The Family Law Company is considering options for opening a Cornwall office in the future. Director of business development, Rachel Buckley, said: “This is the start of something really exciting. We’re delighted to welcome Lucy to the team and to be able to provide our services further afield.

“Her knowledge of the area includes in depth understanding of the needs of the rural and farming communities, which is an invaluable resource.”
