Lisa Cox


I am a Solicitor in the Court of Protection and Inheritance Disputes team in our Colchester office.

I studied the LLB Dual Qualifying Law degree at Dundee University in Scotland before completing the Legal Practice Course at BPP University in London. I then completed my training contract at Birkett Long where I spent time in Wills, Trusts and Probate, Residential Real Estate, the Dispute Resolution team and the Court of Protection and Inheritance Disputes team.

I enjoy working with, and speaking to, individual clients as my ambition to become a solicitor derived from my want to help people.

Prior to moving to Colchester I danced competitively for 18 years, both as an individual and as part of a team. During this time I represented Scotland in a number of international competitions including the world freestyle championships and the American All Star Championships, where I placed as a double American champion. I also performed twice in Disneyworld Florida as part of the Disney Performing Arts Company.

I have now retired my dancing shoes and enjoy cooking and travelling.
