She also has a well-established wealth protection practice advising clients on pre-and post-nuptial agreements.

Claire has great experience in private law cases relating to a child’s living arrangements, significant decisions regarding their care and applications by one parent to relocate within the UK or overseas with a child.

Claire has a particular interest in managing the reputational aspect of relationship breakdown and protecting the balance between personal and private life. Described as “one of the very best partners“, “out performing her peers” and whose negotiating skills are “second to none“, Claire is adept at ensuring that her clients feel supported in what is often a pivotal time in their lives, working with them to achieve the best possible outcome, enabling them to move forward with confidence.
