Claire Renney


18 years qualified

Claire studied Law at Northumbria University, completing her degree part-time whilst working as a paralegal. After qualifying in 2004, Claire practiced family law at local North-East firm before moving to Newcastle City Council where she worked in both their Childcare and Employment teams.

Now part of our Employment team, Claire specialises in education, providing specialist safeguarding advice to schools, as well as handling legal issues relating to employment law.

Outside of work, Claire is the Chair of Governors for her son’s primary school. And, as a qualified Ballroom and Latin dance teacher, Claire will no doubt be putting the rest of the firm to shame on the dancefloor, and hopefully providing some free dance lessons to her more rhythmically challenged colleagues.
