Christopher Clayton

Associate - Dispute Resolution and Litigation

Christopher is an experienced commercial dispute resolution solicitor. He has experience in a wide range of commercial disputes including shareholder and director disputes, breach of contract, commercial fraud, misrepresentation issues, insurance related disputes and professional negligence claims. Christopher also has experience in representing clients in alternative forms of dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration.


Christopher graduated with a History degree in 2008 before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in 2010.

Christopher qualified as a solicitor in 2016 and joined us from Freeths, a large national firm. Prior to qualifying, Christopher worked as a legal costs specialist so he is well placed to advise clients both on the legal and cost implications of their disputes. More recently, Christopher became a Solicitor-Advocate allowing him to represent clients in all courts, including the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

In his spare time, Christopher enjoys playing the piano, running and walking the Lakeland fells. He has recently taken up golf, which is very much a work in progress.
