Claire Sandbrook is the CEO of Shergroup Limited, which originated from the long- established law firm of Burchell and Ruston and the Sheriff’s Office for Greater London and Surrey.

Claire’s story is one of humble beginnings.  She moved from her hometown of Norwich when she was just 18 to get a job with a London firm.  Her first job was with Burchell & Ruston as an audio typist.  That was 40 years ago.  After 3 years of typing she decided she had all that she needed to get herself to college and complete her law degree.  When she completed this and her Law Society examination, she was offered an article clerkship with Alastair and two years later he made her a partner when she qualified as an attorney. 

In 1992 she took an equity stake in Burchell & Ruston and embarked on designing a ‘Way Forward’ strategy for the firm which would diversify the business away from the reliance of the Office of Sheriff.  Even then she learned that you can never rely on one business revenue to sustain a business.  It is better to have several businesses under your brand to weather the ups and downs of business life.
