Skill, honesty and integrity! Some of the qualities one looks for in a lawyer and i must say i found Attorney Claire to posses all these and more. An attorney with a team that is always willing to go that extra mile in order to assure a superior service to the client. Throughout our professional and business dealings, Mrs. Claire has remained unfailingly courteous but more is her encyclopedic knowledge of the market rules in Uganda. I continue to consult with her especially on matters of contracts law as it relates to the construction sector.
