Claire Clutterham is experienced in providing legal, commercial and contracting advice in the construction, defence and mining industries. Claire has almost 20 years of Australian and international experience, having spent close to a decade acting for government and private enterprises in international arbitration proceedings in the Middle East and Asia.

Claire has particular in-house expertise in the defence industry and has a deep understanding of the complex regulatory regimes governing that industry, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act (as applicable to Government Business Enterprises), in addition to privacy, freedom of information, WHS and whistleblowing legislation.
With a strong understanding of corporate governance issues, Claire holds a number of Board positions and is an elected councilor for the Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Council. Claire also teaches in the Practical Legal Training course at the Leo Cussen Centre for Law.
