What can Claudia do for you?

Claudia is a principal associate in our family team. She advises clients about the financial consequences of relationship breakdown, whether cohabiting or married. Claudia also has a substantial practice in advising parents in private law children cases, particularly those which are considered high conflict and/or with an international aspect. Legal 500 considers her the "name to note for private children cases" in the region.  

Supporting your ambitions

Claudia works hard to understand what her clients want to achieve, providing valuable, robust and straightforward advice.

Recent highlights for Claudia include:

  • Advising a father in the Court of Appeal, and advising a mother in complex children proceedings which included a two week long fact find hearing.

          In both cases, Claudia kept the focus on the child(ren) throughout. 

  • Negotiating a favourable agreement for a multi-generational farmer with significant arguments regarding the accrual of pre-marital wealth.

Claudia works closely with Philip Way who leads the Leeds team. Commentators state: 

"Mills & Reeve are the stand-out quality firm in Leeds. They are a notch above everyone else. The quality of their work is unparalleled"


"They are the go-to team for resolving large financial disputes, incredibly thorough in their analysis of the detail and desire to achieve the right result for their client, who is completely safe in their hands."
