We asked Claire:

What do you enjoy about your role?

I enjoy working closely with clients and am passionate about becoming a trusted and integral part of the client team.

What can clients expect from you?

A personal bespoke service tailored to achieving their commercial goals and timescales.

What drew you to this sort of work?

I get a real buzz seeing my legal work in real life as clients showcase their new developments and I see the fruition of my legal work for the first time.

What are your interests outside of work?

I spend a lot of my free time being “Mum’s Taxi” for my super sporty son.  I also enjoy hill walking, skiing, running and occasional sailing and champagne drinking anywhere sunnier than Yorkshire!
