Clare’s hallmarks are her calm, confident approach and her belief that excellence of service forms the backbone of a good client relationship. IT and a commercial awareness have underpinned much of Clare’s work over the past decade. This experience has enabled her to apply legal expertise to deliver innovative, cost saving or efficiency benefits for clients.
Clare has advised a wide variety of businesses ranging from global corporates to local start-ups on the legal aspects involved in both large and small scale commercial ventures. In addition to being involved in the legal negotiations herself, she has also managed and coordinated the teams involved in large commercial projects (including outsourcing) both in the private and public sector.
Prior to joining Novalex, Clare was a member of the outsourcing, trade and technology team at the Birmingham based law firm Wragge & Co. Before that, she trained and qualified at the London branch of Garretts, a member firm of Andersen Legal. While working in private practice, Clare was seconded to a number of key clients. Working in-house while being on secondment has given Clare a commercial approach to providing legal solutions.
Clare is fluent in Italian and speaks good French and Russian. She also gained international experience in IT and commercial contracts when she spent six months working in Andersen Legal’s Milan office (Studio di Consulenza Legale e Tributaria).
