Linklaters congratulates Clare Moulder on her historic appointment to Justice of the High Court, Queen’s Bench Division

Linklaters celebrates the appointment of Clare Moulder to Justice of the High Court, Queen’s Bench Division. Clare, who joined Linklaters as an articled clerk in 1982 and was elected Partner in 1991, is the first ever female solicitor to be appointed to the High Court without having practiced at the bar.

Charlie Jacobs, Senior Partner, Linklaters said: “This is an historic day for the UK legal profession and we all at Linklaters are proud to congratulate Clare on her achievement. Her appointment is an important milestone for the UK legal profession. It is proof that talented solicitors can make the transition to the highest ranks of the judiciary. I am certain that many other talented lawyers will view Clare as an inspirational role model and follow in her footsteps.”

During her time as a Partner at Linklaters, Clare had a broad finance practice spanning banking and capital markets work, most recently focusing on sophisticated financial products. She was a key relationship partner for some of Linklaters’ most significant bank clients as well as a pioneer for a new flexible working arrangement within the Firm.
