23rd October 2015

We asked the newest member of the Clinical Negligence team a few questions, beyond her role as a solicitor. So Claire..

How did you first start working in Law?

I just decided after my degree in ancient history to do the GDL, I like reading and writing and organising and analysing so thought it would suit me!!

Client contact and obtaining settlements which will improve their lives after being seriously let down by medical professionals they trusted. It's nice to feel like you have helped make their lives better.

Own a tea rooms and bake lots of cake!

What's the one thing you can't live without?

Sugary treats!

If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have?

Invisibility; I am nosey and would love to be able to find out all the gossip!

What nicknames do you have?

Bear as in Claire bear embarrassing I know, and Boardface instead of Boardman my surname.. not sure why I don't think I have a bored face!!!

What was the last book you read?

I am Pilgrim

If you hosted a dinner party, what three people (dead or alive) would you invite?

2. Colin Firth

3. James Cordon

Question from Holly Clayton-Smith: What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you at work?

Running late for a conference, crashing my car on route and then showing up at chambers with the client and counsel absolutely soaking wet having run through the rain as I couldn't find any car parking spaces nearby! Not my finest moment... Funnily enough all happened on Fri 13th! Unlucky!

Your question for the next blogger:

What is the strangest thing you have every encountered in your job?
