Lucy Folley

Partner, Company and Commercial

Lucy Foley, partner and commercial property specialist in Brentwood

Logistics sector lead

I qualified as a solicitor in 1994, and started my legal career in London, joining Wortley Byers in 1997.  I became a partner in the Wortley Byers’ corporate commercial department in 1999 and led the team between 2009 and 2012. In January 2014, I was appointed Managing Partner of Wortley Byers, leading the firm’s merger into Tees Law. Currently, I head the corporate commercial department at Tees Law and our logistics sector offering. 

I specialise in a range of corporate and commercial matters across a number of industry sectors, including:

  • mergers and acquisitions;
  • group restructuring;
  • joint ventures and partnerships;
  • management buy outs;
  • employee incentivisation schemes;
  • finance and banking;
  • commercial agreements.

Clients often commend me for providing pragmatic advice that enables them to achieve their desired outcomes seamlessly. Over my years of legal practice, I have acquired extensive knowledge in my chosen fields. My primary objective is to ensure that each client's goals are met, and I take great pleasure and pride in delivering a high-quality service.
