"Thank you for all your help on my and my family's affairs. I greatly appreciate the interest you take and the time and trouble you put into looking after us. This is invaluable."
"We were delighted to learn you had been inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame and send you our warmest congratulations on the recognition which you so well deserve."
"It's clear when you deal with Clare that you're benefiting from a huge breadth and depth of experience. When you couple that with a pretty impressive eye for detail, it's very reassuring. She's very straightforward to work with, partly because she knows exactly what she's talking about, so one's not needing to examine what she's saying because one's confident that it's right."
