Commercial dispute resolution

Having achieved a number of high-value outcomes for clients at an early stage of her career, Clare is an up and coming lawyer who is becoming known for her tenacity as a litigator. Admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2020, she gained extensive experience in both NSW and Victorian legal systems after qualification.

Before joining Robinson Gill, Clare handled a wide range of matters spanning a breadth of civil and commercial litigation, intellectual property, property, family law and criminal law. She hit the ground running with the firm, spending her first six months leading a multi-million dollar value partnership dispute. She has now widened her focus to include shareholder disputes, construction disputes, and property disputes.

Seeing things through

Clients, barristers and colleagues alike praise Clare for her attention to detail and dedication to seeing matters through. Taking every claim seriously, she treats matters as though they were her own - and is no stranger to putting in late nights to achieve a positive outcome. Highly organised and prompt in her communications, she is a lawyer who never needs to be asked - or told - twice.

An eye for business

With her background working as a legal consultant for international businesses, Clare understands the nuances of the commercial world- and the concerns that matter most to her clients. Having handled complex intellectual property and lease disputes within the cosmetics industry, she has developed an analytical eye, and has a knack for picking up on key details that others may miss.

Clare holds a Bachelor of Commerce from Adelaide University. She also holds a Master in Business Law and Juris Doctor from the University of Sydney.

She is fluent in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
