A strong researcher and writer, Claire brings a high level of attention to detail and thoroughness to the business litigation, education, and healthcare matters she handles. She brings court, corporate, and law firm perspectives to the role.

Claire previously interned as a law clerk for the Honorable David G. Larimer of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York. With a particular interest in healthcare, she also interned in the General Counsel office of an international biopharmaceutical company where she worked on issues of state and federal corporate compliance, contract management, and data privacy.

Claire’s passion for law preceded her law school journey. Before going to law school, she worked as a paralegal at a labor and employment firm, and while in college, worked as both a file clerk at a large multi-state defense firm and an intern at the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.
