Prior to taking silk, Clair was Counsel to the Crown (civil) for 17 years, seven of which she spent on “A” Panel of Treasury Counsel. She has been in many of the seminal cases in her areas of expertise, in recent years. Recent or current instructions include United States v Assange (in which she is counsel for the United States); Secretary of State for the Home Department v El Gizouli (Supreme Court litigation concerning the death penalty and the so- called Jihadi Beatles); Terra Services v Home Secretary (concerning the investigations in the United Kingdom of associates of former President Trump); EVAW v DPP (judicial review litigation concerning the decline in rape cases being charged and prosecuted); the inquiry into Children’s Homes in Lambeth (as part of her role as counsel to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse) and the East London Inquests (concerning the investigations into the murders of four young men).

Clair has appeared alone before the Supreme Court, the Privy Council and in the European Court of Human Rights. She is recommended as a leading practitioner across six different practice areas (public law, extradition law, inquests and inquiries, professional discipline, police law and civil liberties).
