When not at work

Originally from Paris, Claire often returns to France to visit her friends and family. Before starting her career in law, she performed as an opera singer and is still passionate about music. She enjoys exploring the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District at weekends, no matter what the British weather throws at her. This of course makes exploring warmer destinations all the more enjoyable!
