Claire Tollefson joins South East Family Team

Birketts is pleased to announce Claire Tollefson has joined its South East-based Family Team as a Senior Associate.

Claire, who will be working from Birketts’ Sevenoaks office, has almost 14 years of experience and practiced at fellow Kent law firm Cripps for many years. She specialises in advising clients on all aspects of divorce and separation, particularly where there are complex businesses, tax issues, trusts (including offshore trusts) and significant pension arrangements. Claire also has extensive experience advising on pre- and post-nuptial agreements and dealing with complex children matters, including those with serious allegations of harm or parental alienation, as well as cases involving relocation, both domestically and internationally.


Claire is listed in the Citywealth Leaders List and is a member of Resolution.


On her arrival, Claire said: “It has been great meeting all of the team in Sevenoaks, and I am looking forward to getting started. I am committed to achieving the best outcomes for my clients, by providing reasoned advice and family-led solutions that put the people involved at the fore-front.”


Vanda James, Partner and Head of our Sevenoaks Family Team added: “Claire is a fantastic addition to the team here in Sevenoaks, and I know that I can speak for all of our colleagues and clients by saying we are excited to begin working together.”


The Family Team has recently been announced as winners of the Family Law Firm of the Year – South category at the Family Law Awards 2023 and earlier this year Birketts were also recognised at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards as the winners of the Professional Services Firm 2024 category.
