Claire Newcombe



Claire qualified in 2000 and joined legacy firm Andersons in 2005.

Claire has extensive experience of personal injury litigation both in the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session. 

As a qualified solicitor advocate, she has right of audience in all civil courts in Scotland as well as the Supreme Court in London. 

She has experience in road traffic claims, employer's liability, public liability and commercial claims. Her exposure to these claims in the highest courts has given her a unique insight into fraudulent claims and fraud strategies to be adopted in these cases. 

She now heads up the firm's Claims Validation Team in Scotland handling fraudulent claims of all types. She liaises with Specialist Fraud Counsel to ensure implementation of client strategies. This role also includes carrying out fraud training both internally and externally, and developing and expanding CVT into Scotland.
