Claire Blakemore

Spear's Review

Highly-regarded Withers partner Claire Blakemore has enhanced her reputation further by taking a key role in the creation of the firm's new 'separation model', Uncouple. ‘In recognition of the need for new ways of resolving disputes, I created a new method by which couples can reach resolutions in a non-positional way,’ she tells Spear’s. Uncouple was officially approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in 2020.

Blakemore regularly acts for members of UHNW families in highly-sensitive cases involving divorce claims, property law and trust disputes. In one such recent case she was able to successfully defend additional financial claims, as well as obtaining children orders which allowed the client to resume contact with their offspring.

Adviser Profile

Claire gets to the heart of situations fast, giving reliable indications of best outcomes and working out a plan from the outset to get clients to their desired outcome.

In recognition of the need for new ways of resolving disputes, Claire created an innovative method by which couples can reach resolutions in a non-positional way. Uncouple provides a means of reaching resolutions without going to Court – a first for family law.

Whilst being highly experienced in difficult litigation, she has a thriving practice as a mediator and collaborative lawyer. Whether working with domestic or international clients, she deals with complex financial claims, children issues, pre/post-nuptial agreements and cases involving trusts.
