Clare Durkin

Experience

  • I am a senior associate in the commercial litigation department with over 10 years’ experience.
  • I have extensive trial experience having acted in numerous High Court and Court of Appeal trials, arbitrations and judicial reviews for both claimants and defendants.
  • My expertise includes breach of contract and warranty claims, corporate and partnership disputes which involve allegations of civil fraud and breach of fiduciary duties, professional negligence claims and judicial review.
  • I provide both legal and commercial advice in order to assist customers’ decision-making and navigation through the litigation process. I frequently use mediation and negotiation to resolve disputes where possible, but my extensive trial experience means I am able to offer customers a sound analysis of the benefits and risks of proceeding to trial.
