Personal Injury

Claire has extensive experience in all areas of personal injury law, including industrial and workplace injuries and road traffic accidents. She accepts instructions at all levels and acts for both claimants and defendants. Claire also undertakes a significant volume of advisory work, particularly in relation to assessing quantum for general and special damages.

Landlord and Tenant

Claire has represented both landlords and tenants in commercial and residential disputes from preliminary hearings through to trial; this is an area of growing interest to her.

Credit Hire

Claire has regular experience of representing claimants and defendants in high-value credit hire litigation.

Other areas of law

In addition, Claire’s common law practice includes contract disputes, insolvency, Inheritance Act claims and Trusts of Land Act (TOLATA) cases.



Personal Interests

Outside of work, Claire enjoys good food and wine and keeping fit.


We and our clients are delighted with the result and I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire Clift and Clerksroom in the future. She did really well to get an absolute possession order first time out.
