Position

Claire successfully completed pupillage in 2005 in Liverpool, covering all disciplines where she gained substantial experience in family, criminal and civil law. Claire joined Chambers in early 2010. Within a very short period of time here at Chambers, Claire established herself with a number of local firms specialising in family law, indeed on her first day of tenancy she represented a child in care proceedings impressing both the guardian and solicitor immediately with her thorough preparation, advocacy and manner. Needless to say Claire’s family practice has gone from strength to strength culminating in her decision in October 2010 to specialise solely in family law with a particular interest in public law Children Act proceedings. Claire accepts instructions and regularly appears on behalf of a number of local authorities, parents, family members and children’s guardians. She provides written and oral advice to local authorities and private clients pertaining to all aspects of public and private law proceedings and also accepts instructions to represent applicants and respondents in all aspects of private law proceedings, including contact and residence applications.
