Lucy, who has a law degree from Nottingham Trent University and subsequently completed her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at Nottingham Law School, is the daughter of partner and head of the Employment Law department, Martin Bloom.

Lucy says her father definitely inspired her choice of career. “Dad was always so passionate about his work, and I grew up with a real fascination for the law as a result. I cannot imagine doing anything else.”

Martin, who has been with Hegarty Solicitors since 1979, said: “I am incredibly proud of Lucy and all that she has achieved. I am delighted that she shares my passion and enthusiasm for the law, and know she will be a great asset to the firm.  It is great to see her following in my footsteps.”

Lucy completed her training contract at Hegarty Solicitors this year and joined the firm as a fully qualified solicitor in September 2013, specialising in Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate work.

Partner Greg Baker, head of the Trusts and Probate department said "Lucy spent six months within the Trusts and Probate department as part of her training, and really impressed with her positive attitude and commitment to client care. She will be a great addition to the team."
