After founding The Fold in 2003, Claire led the expansion from our general insurance origins into wealth management, credit, fintech, blockchain and beyond. Now chairman of our board, she proudly oversees The Fold’s mission to simplify regulatory complexity and provide affordable legal solutions to financial services businesses.
Renowned for her ability to find novel and elegant answers to old problems, disregarding norms is a specialty. As one of her long-standing clients puts it, “I always enjoyed working together as you were one of the few lawyers who had the guts to call it as it is.”
An uber-connector and recognised thought leader on regulatory and governance issues, Claire deploys her strategy-first approach and vast knowledge of financial services as a consultant, start-up adviser, and non-executive director with a handful of carefully selected companies.
And although we don’t see as much of her as we’d like, she’s always on hand to chew over a thorny problem or find a way past an obstacle – just try and stop her!
If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.
