Having trained at City law firm Travers Smith she moved to Farrer & Co where she became a Partner in 1998. She went on to head up the family team at Penningtons (latterly Thomas Eggar) from 2004 before starting CH-R Family Solicitors with Daisy Hutchinson in 2013.

When court proceedings become necessary Claire will go the extra mile for clients.
