Claire is the lead lawyer on Ashurst’s pro bono Windrush Compensation Assistance scheme, in partnership with the community legal center United Legal Access. This project, which Claire developed as a response to the Windrush Scandal, the BLM marches, and the death of George Floyd, provides legal help to people who suffered as a result of the UK Home Office’s ‘hostile environment’ policy, which saw thousands of British Black Afro-Caribbean people lose their homes, their right to work and their access to social welfare and healthcare, as well as facing deportation in some cases. Claire worked with ULA to develop legal training for herself and 20 other lawyers at Ashurst, and the team has so far provided over 500 hours of free legal support to ULA and their clients. Claire is also the Co-Founder of Sachiko & Shu, a minority-led enterprise focused on activism through storytelling and events, which released a digital anti-racism charity cookbook “Recipes Against Racism” in April 2021.
