About Claire

Claire provides proactive, high level support to the Browne Jacobson Barristers Team, taking ownership of diary management, marketing and ensuring that our clients expectations are exceeded.

Our team of barristers and advocates is professionally clerked by Claire Smith, who joined in 2020, bringing over 16 years’ experience from Chambers in the North West. Claire provides an excellent standard of service to our clients, ensuring our in-house barristers’ team is on par with the traditional chambers model. She uses her experience to cater to both the individual barrister’s strengths and each client’s needs, ensuring specific relationships are built.

Communication with the courts and other external partners is imperative to the smooth running of the team. Diary management, advanced planning, and able to problem solve under time pressure are just a few of Claire’s core strengths.

Claire and her role have been instrumental to the growth of Browne Jacobson barristers (the team have doubled in size in the last 10 years). Her business development acumen enables Claire to work closely with the firm to strategically grow and service target areas.

Outside of the office Claire can be found coaching at Stoke City FC (although an Everton fan) and has recently passed the UEFA A Licence qualification (the second highest qualification in coaching) and has been directly approached by FIFA to appear on their website to provide a pre-recorded educational coaching session.
