What can Claire do for you?

Claire is Mills & Reeve’s managing partner responsible for driving the firm’s strategy that has seen above average growth for the last three years.

Her legal experience spans the full spectrum of corporate work, from acquisitions and disposals, to joint ventures and restructuring. Claire has particular expertise in funds creation work and also specialises in work in the education sector.

Supporting your ambitions

Claire recently advised three London colleges on a major merger. It was a complex project that also involved IP, real estate, banking, employment, pensions, regulatory, environmental and data protection advice. This was a great example of how Mills & Reeve really gets to know its clients and understand the business, including the pressures, the challenges and the opportunities.

Claire also advised 18 University of Cambridge colleges create a first-of-its-kind finance deal, raising over £400 million from institutional investors.  The deal was described as “very innovative and very 21st century... the kind of deal that is an industry trailblazer”.

What do others say?

A client recently commented that Claire “has a sharp mind, a wealth of experience, cuts through the rubbish and shows how she really sees it from the client’s perspective”.

The Legal 500 2018 describes Claire as a “leading light” with “niche expertise in both the education sector and investment funds formation”.

What else should you know?

If Claire wasn’t busy being managing partner of a leading UK law firm dedicated to developing its reputation for innovative and exciting work and providing a supportive, flexible and agile working environment for its people to truly thrive in, then she would have liked to be a garden designer.  She enjoys creating, nurturing and seeing things grow.
