Clare is a partner with over 30 years experience of acting for clients on intellectual property (IP) and commercial disputes.  She is an accredited mediator and her aim is to achieve clients objectives as cost effectively as possible. She has held management positions as Head of Litigation and as a member of Partnership Council.

In advising clients Clare not only looks at the issues involved in a dispute but also the surrounding commercial backdrop to find the best strategy for clients to attain their objectives whether it be protecting and enhancing the value of their commercial/IP assets or leveraging their position in negotiations. Her familiarity with key legal documents whether corporate, commercial or real estate enables her to skillfully find pragmatic solutions to IP and commercial issues. Where litigation/arbitration is the best approach Clare's drive and determination make her a formidable opponent. She has acted successfully on many leading reported cases in the fields of misuse of confidential information/trade secrets, duties of trustees and professional negligence.

Clare acts for a range of clients from multi-national household names to start-ups.
