Claire Cox

Solicitor - Dispute Resolution Team

I am originally from Wiltshire, but have lived in Cheltenham since 2013. I studied Law at Cardiff University and qualified as a solicitor in 2009.

I have experience in a broad range of disputes, but have a particular interest in inheritance disputes. These can be claims against estates, disputes between Executors/Trustees, estate administration issues and also breach of trust. In addition, I deal with contentious trusts outside of inheritance disputes, for example in cases where an individual considers that they have an interest in a property not legally owned by them.

In addition, I also cover property disputes, debt recovery, professional negligence, insurance and contractual disputes.

I have been a litigator since 2009 and consider myself to be pragmatic, thorough and approachable, but tenacious. I pride myself on my ability to build strong and lasting relationships with my clients, and I place a great deal of importance upon being a personable lawyer who my clients can quickly place trust in. This is reflected in my reviews, which recognise the personal and supportive approach I bring to my clients, whilst delivering results as a robust litigator.

I come from a long line of twins (myself, my mum and my grandmother were all twins!) however, I was quite relieved to have two singleton pregnancies and my two young daughters Alice and Edie were born in 2016 and 2019 respectively. They are my pride and joy! We also have a cat, Freddie, but he now only comes in to eat his meals (or occasionally drop off a dead rodent) as he doesn’t enjoy being chased by a toddler.
