Clair is a Corporate Tax and VAT specialist and was promoted to Partner and Head of Corporate Tax in the practice in 2022.
Clair leads our team of Corporate Tax advisors and works closely with other partners and staff in the firm to ensure that clients receive the corporate tax support they need. Clair also specialises in VAT matters including UK, cross border and customs duty issues.
Clair joined Alliotts after spending two and a half years at a Top 30 firm in central London where she looked after both inward investment companies and various entrepreneurial entities. During this time Clair built on the knowledge she gained over the previous 10 years at a large regional practice whilst training as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, (and achieving prize-winning scores in her final ACA exams).
Clair is passionate about investing time in understanding her clients and their businesses to be able to provide advice which is practical and appropriate to clients’ circumstances, whilst ensuring that the clients understand matters thoroughly and receive the personal service that they each deserve.

Clair recently became a new mother to Patrick and enjoys most of her spare time these days with him and her partner, Gary. They also have two spaniels, so their home is a busy one to say the least!
Clair is a keen car and Land Rover enthusiast, owning a collection of 5 currently of her own that she looks after and often fixes herself! She loves to take her land rovers off road when possible and enjoys touring, walking and camping expeditions with her family. She is also a DIY enthusiast and will try her hand at most things, most recently building a brick garden wall and plastering some walls in her home. She’s certainly not afraid to get her hands dirty and muck in when there’s a job at hand!
Alliotts was founded in 1869 in the City of London
