“People who come to us for help and advice often do so at a very difficult time in their lives. They may have lost someone they love, or suffered a significant or even catastrophic injury and be faced with a lifelong disability. In my experience what they need in a lawyer is someone who will give them frank, clear and practical advice. Someone they can rely on to fight to obtain answers, recognition of what went wrong and ultimately the appropriate compensation to secure their future.”
Clair has been recognised as a notable practitioner in the Chambers UK 2020 legal directory in which they say: “Clair Hemming ‘s expertise lies in cases surrounding injuries sustained at birth, with a particular focus on Erb’s palsy claims.

"From the moment I met you, I felt so confident in your ability as our legal expert but also was delighted to find that you are such a lovely person which made it an absolute pleasure having you at the helm, navigating our way through some pretty stormy seas. We have nothing but praise for the manner in which you conducted the case and I have already recommended you several times and will continue to do so going forward."
