Claire Patrick

Partner, Abu Dhabi


“Claire Janvier is my preferred [attorney] to work on any of my deals, regardless of the subject matter. Her intelligence and work ethic are quite literally unrivalled. However, what separates Claire from the other outstanding attorneys is her ability to manage a deal. Deal management is a skill quite separate from simply practicing law. It requires leadership, a high EQ, and legal acumen. She has the natural ability to keep the entire transaction moving towards closure.”
The Legal 500, 2021


Claire is a partner in our Energy, Infrastructure, Project and Asset Finance Group, based in the Abu Dhabi. She has assisted on a wide variety of transactions, with a focus on the energy sector.
