Environmental Law

She represented local communities and fishermen in proceedings against Shell subsidiaries in Nigeria for extensive oil spillage affecting their livelihoods and causing long-term damage to the environment.

She acted for a group of farmers in Colombia in proceedings against former subsidiaries of BP for the damage caused to their farms and livelihoods as a result of the construction of the OCENSA pipeline. Claire was involved in the trial in this claim which  lasted six months.

Claire has experience working on large multi-party actions and advises on the strategic and procedural issues which emerge in such proceedings.

Much of Claire’s work involves construction or engineering issues surrounding large infrastructure projects, and in particular linear construction projects. Claire also has extensive experience with contaminated water sources, remedial works for polluted environments and airport engineering.
