Gateley has promoted commercial dispute resolution lawyer Claire Herbert to associate. Qualifying as a solicitor in 2009, having started her career as a legal executive, Herbert works between Leicester and London and is experienced in dealing with media litigation, contractual claims, professional negligence, shareholder and partnership disputes and enforcement action.
In particular, she specialises in contentious probate/inheritance claims and mediation as an alternative method of dispute resolution.
Herbert is also actively involved in the wider business community as chair of Network LE, an independent networking organisation for Leicester’s professional community, and as organising committee member of L Factor, an annual charity singing contest.
Earlier this year, she was named one of the top four rising stars in the inaugural East Midlands Fastest 40 Awards ‘Fastest in Professional Services’ category. The awards, presented by East Midlands Business Link, celebrate up-and-coming talent in the region under the age of 40.
