I am an accredited mediator and family lawyer with 20 years’ experience of advising people on family law matters. I am highly regarded by the UK’s leading law directory, The Legal 500, having been recommended in the Guide every year since 2013 and this is what they say about my expertise: “Claire Colbert is ‘outstanding in every respect, showing consistent dedication and commitment that is both impressive and reassuring”.

As an Accredited Mediator I explore options to resolve issues between couples, often using skills acquired whilst practising as a family law solicitor. I am qualified to meet with children during the mediation process, where appropriate. I am Hybrid Mediation trained.

I work from our Oxford and London offices, dealing with all of the legal aspects of relationship breakdown including divorce, financial issues and disputes regarding children.  What sets me apart from other family solicitors is that I help clients to reach agreements amicably and swiftly.

I deal with complex financial disputes, often involving inherited assets and family businesses. I also have vast experience in dealing with School Appeals and Child Maintenance Appeals and tribunals.

My achievements as a specialist family solicitor were acknowledged nationally at Jordan’s Family Law Awards in October 2013, when I was named Family Law Associate Solicitor of the year.

I am the author of the Which Guide to Divorce and Splitting up (2010) and the Which divorce guide 2015.
