Clare joined the Firm in 1999 and qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and initially specialised in Private Client and Employment work.

Clare became Managing Partner of Turner Coulston in 2007 when the Firm was expanding the business and building the extension to its Northampton office.  She had a leading role in the merger between Turner Coulston and Borneo Hughes Martell in December 2012 requiring involvement in the legal merger of the two firms as well as directing the physical relocation of personnel, the rebranding, marketing and IT and telecommunications projects.  Clare continued as Managing Partner following that merger.

Now overseeing compliance in the Firm and dealing with regulatory matters, strategy, marketing and recuitment, Clare works closely with the Firm's Practice Manager, Helen Penny who undertakes the day-to-day management of it.

Clare's interest in private client work remains and she advises and assists on wills and probate matters and powers of attorney.  She is a member of the Wills and Probate Department and has been the driving force behind the Firm's efforts to obtain and retain Law Society accreditation under the Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme.  One of Clare's focusses across the Firm has been on providing an excellent standard of client care and this is particularly true in relation to her own client work where she delivers a friendly, professional and empathetic service to clients.

Outside work, Clare reads, bakes, going to the theatre, socialising with friends and spending time with family.
