About me

Letting a dispute go on for too long is costly, stressful and detrimental to your business. I’m a firm negotiator and aim to resolve your dispute early and efficiently, so you can concentrate on running your organisation.

I’m qualified in both the UK and Australia, and with over 15 years’ experience in commercial litigation, I have acted for developers in both regions, advising on professional negligence matters and complex contractual disputes. I never let my clients chase me, so I’ll always keep you updated on your case.

I work with a wide range of people, including individuals and property developers, but I also specialise in defence and security, helping companies in the sector to remove the barriers preventing them from achieving their potential. I enjoy a good commercial fight, and there’s nothing more satisfying than unravelling the evidence and building a strong case for my clients.

“Exemplary” advice settles dispute on professional negligence

Claire Holford was quick to act when a client came to her with a dispute resolution issue involving professional negligence. Thanks to Claire’s expertise and understanding, the issue was resolved through mediation. The client said: “Over a week now since my story with you has been finalised, and with that I would like to say how amazing you were. HCR are very lucky to have you. “Your professionalism was outstanding, your ability to recall vital information, and depth of knowledge to my case was exemplary. “I cannot speak highly enough of you, and of course your paralegal, Simona, who quietly also knew everything. Enormous thanks for getting me through my story.”

Will we win?

Litigation is risky, so I can never promise that you’ll be completely successful, but I will keep you updated of the risks as your case develops.

Have I got a good case?

When we meet, tell me as much as you can. I’ll then be able to look at the positive elements of your case and determine whether success is possible. However, litigation can be unpredictable, and it’s important to bear that in mind throughout.

I’m not sure if this document is relevant. What do you think?

Give me everything you have, and I’ll decide what’s relevant to the case and what you need to disclose.
