About Lucia Rye

I qualified in 2008 and joined Invicta Law from Sheffield City Council where I was a member of the Education Legal Team.

I assist in advising on all major outsourcing projects with expertise in setting up and incorporating public sector trading companies including drafting required governance documents such as Shareholder Agreements, Articles and Memorandum of Association and directors’ roles and responsibilities.

I have experience drafting a wide range of contracts covering works, goods and services, IT, Intellectual Property and Data Protection, funding and grant agreements and consultant contracts. I advise clients in relation to pensions when private sector companies are seeking to be admitted to public sector pension schemes.

I also have extensive experience providing training to clients, producing a series of training presentations to assist in the compliant procurement of goods, works and services.

Areas of expertise

  • Construction
  • Contracts

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
