4 New Square (Chambers of Mark Cannon QC)

Position

Clare’s practice encompasses three main areas: professional liability, insurance (including subrogated recovery actions) and commercial litigation. At the cross over of her insurance and professional liability work come cases involving professional indemnity policies. Clare has advised both insurers and insureds on a variety of issues including policy interpretation, non-disclosure and fraud.

Clare believes in taking a tough but commercial approach to litigation and relishes advocacy in all its forms.

Notable cases include:

  • Costain v Tarmac Holdings Limited [2017] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 331: decision on the existence, and application, of an arbitration agreement in a construction contract;
  • Impact Funding v Barrington [2017] AC 73: Supreme Court decision on the interpretation of the trade debts exclusion in professional indemnity policies;
  • Begum v Neejam [9.12.15]: loss of a chance claim arising out of an employment dispute;
  • Kagalovsky v Balmore Invest Limited [2015] PNLR 26: wasted costs claim against Leading Counsel;
  • Travelers Insurance Co Ltd v Advani [2012] EWHC 623: claim in fraud by insurers against former insured; and
