Unit Chambers is delighted to announce that Jenna Lucas has joined the Unit Chambers family set.
Prior to joining Unit Chambers, Jenna was a Partner at national law firm Irwin Mitchell LLP in London where she was already an established and accomplished family lawyer. Jenna will join Unit Chambers on 7 June 2021 as a Consultant Barrister.
Lisa Edmunds, CEO of Unit Chambers and Senior Consultant Barrister said, “The Unit Chambers board of directors are delighted to have acquired the services of an outstanding new family law advocate and we look forward to Jenna joining us. We are an ambitious new breed of Chambers and Jenna is the perfect fit to head up our ever growing private client portfolio.”
Jenna Lucas said, “I am delighted to be joining Unit Chambers. As a big believer in disrupting the status quo in the legal sector, the prospect of helping shape the future of one of the new breeds of chambers is one I am really energised by and looking forward to. There is incredible potential to be fulfilled across the North West in terms of private client work and I can’t wait to work with Lisa and everyone at Unit Chambers in playing my part to ensure that happens. I can’t wait to get started.”
Jenna has extensive experience of complicated family matters and a varied practice dealing with financial remedy and private law children cases, often involving international elements. She will be leading a new team at Unit Chambers supporting financial and private law work with a particular focus on international matters, broadening Chambers’ offering in this area.
Jenna specialises in complex cases and a considerable amount of her work in recent years has been before the Family Division of the High Court. She has been involved in a number of reported and high profiles cases, including the widely reported Re H-N case in relation to allegations of domestic abuse recently before the Court of Appeal, and Sharland and Gohil, heard by the Supreme Court in 2015.
Whilst at Irwin Mitchell, Jenna worked closely with, and under, the leadership of National Head of Family Law, Rosalyn Bever and has been recognised in the Legal 500 in the last four years; her team were ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
“Jenna is tactically excellent, justifiably confident in her own abilities and extremely hardworking. She is always completely on top of her cases and misses nothing. Clients love her!”
“Strong and very sensible; she works hard to resolve matters well for her clients”
“Although great litigators, the lawyers also work hard with a view to limiting tensions if possible to ensure sensible agreements can be reached. The team has strength in depth and remains accessible. Jenna Lucas is a pleasure to work with.”
Outside of work, Jenna enjoys spending time with her energetic young family. She is an enthusiastic skier, an aspiring yogini and an avid reader.
