New member joins Matrix – Lucinda Cunningham


We are delighted to welcome Lucinda Cunningham as a new member.

Lucinda’s practice focuses on competition law and regulation, public law and human rights, EU law and environmental law. She joins Matrix from the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) where she was a Referendaire assisting the President and Tribunal panels with a range of competition law and regulatory cases, including high-profile collective actions and regulatory appeals. Prior to the CAT, Lucinda spent four years working in-house at two UK regulators. She practised as a barrister at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) working on cases before the Regulatory Transactions Committee, the Regulatory Decisions Committee, the High Court, and the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber). She also spent two years at the Payment Systems Regulator working on enforcement cases involving the Interchange Fee Regulation.

Lucinda completed her traineeship at the FCA, including a secondment to Matrix under the supervision of Jessica Simor KC, Zoe Leventhal KC, Nicholas Gibson and Christopher Brown. Before coming to the Bar, Lucinda was a Research Assistant at the Law Commission of England and Wales where she worked on the Pension Funds and Social Investment project and on proposals for the 13th Programme of Law Reform.

Rachel Holmes, Chief Executive of Matrix, says:

“We are thrilled Lucinda has joined us. She is a great fit for Matrix and will be a huge asset to the team and for our clients. We look forward to working with her and supporting her in the next stage of her career.”
