No5 Barristers’ Chambers is delighted to announce that Lucy Coulson has joined the Personal Injury and Regulatory Groups. Lucy has expertise in all aspects of personal injury and regulatory matters.

In personal injury law, Lucy accepts instructions on both multi-track and fast-track matters, with an emphasis on employers’ liability and public liability cases. Lucy regularly advises in high value cases involving complex liability, causation and quantum issues. She has built a reputation for her excellent manner with vulnerable clients, being both thorough and approachable.

Lucy was appointed to the Attorney General’s Civil Regional C Panel in 2020. She is regularly instructed by government departments, including the Ministry of Justice, Home Office and Department of Work and Pensions, in legally complex and sensitive matters.

In regulatory proceedings, Lucy is regularly instructed by the Teaching Regulation Agency in professional misconduct proceedings against Teachers. She has acted in a range of cases, including cases involving allegations of historical sexual abuse, vulnerable parties and factually complex multi-handed proceedings. Lucy has also recently been instructed by the Care Quality Commission in the Health, Education and Social Care Tribunal.

Lucy returns to the midlands having practiced from 18 St John Street Chambers, Manchester since completion of pupillage in 2016. She is thrilled to be joining No5 Barristers’ Chambers.

Head of the Personal Injury Group, Henry Pitchers QC, said, “we are delighted to welcome Lucy to No5 and to the PI Group.  In her 5 years of tenancy in Manchester, she has built a formidable practice.  She will be a great addition to our thriving team.”
