Road Transport

Clare is a solicitor in our dispute resolution team who also works closely with our regulatory team, particularly in the context of road transport and related matters.

Clare has experience of advising across a wide range of commercial dispute matters, including cost-efficient management and resolution of the following types of issues:

  • Disputed debt recovery
  • Supplier disputes
  • Business and property insurance disputes

Clare also works as part of the wider dispute resolution team on complex issues arising between business owners (partner, director and shareholder disputes).

Whilst at Shulmans, Clare has worked closely with Richard Wadkin, an acknowledged nationally-renowned expert in the area of road transport law. As a result, Clare has developed significant expertise and considerable knowledge and experience in respect of the effective preparation and resolution of road transport-related claims and proceedings.

Clare works alongside our regulatory specialists on various complex contentious regulatory issues pertaining to the transport and logistics industry, providing assistance at public inquiries as well as in respect of matters before the Traffic Commissioners and courts.

Clare’s approach to thorough preparation and her commercial experience, particularly in supplier and debt disputes between commercial entities, provides a solid platform for clients to achieve effective commercial results in the resolution of disputes by early negotiation and other alternative dispute resolution methods, and if needs be at trial.
