Claire Scanlan Director of Legal Services

Often described as Guardian’s secret weapon, I started working with Nickie in 2010 and I guess my role is Chief of Stuff at Guardian! In addition to being the firm’s Director of Legal Services, I look after the finances and operations of the firm and supervise our trainees and paralegals.

My day to day job involves helping businesses manage their people, providing practical and tailored legal advice to numerous organisations large and small. I provide advice on issues including managing performance, dealing with issues of misconduct, handling disciplinaries and grievances, redundancies, TUPE and Employment Tribunal Represenation.

Outside of work, I enjoy weight training, watching football and travelling to weird and wonderful locations. Lots of tales to tell!
