Claire Gallacher



Practice Areas


Claire first started working at a law firm in 2003, where she was put on placement for her business admin apprenticeship that she was completing at the time. Claire began as an office junior and worked her way up to become a legal secretary in the Conveyancing department, a role which she held for 5 years.

She then went on to have her daughter, moved to Scotland and took some time out while she was growing up.  After spending almost 10 years in Scotland, Claire then returned to her home county of Cumbria in 2018 to work as a legal secretary/paralegal in Conveyancing.

At the weekends, Claire can be found walking around the lake district with her family or chilling out at home with a good movie and Gizmo the cat!

Claire and Rebecca have been amazing at sorting out the property of the house sale, even when unexpected paperwork had to be signed by my family. I have been telling other people how good the service was. I am so pleased and can't thank them enough for completing the sale and reassuring me when it was needed. I would definitely give a 10 out of 10. Thank you again.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend BG. Solicitors are notoriously busy at the moment due to the number of people moving homes. Claire responded at all hours of the day, was very pleasant and down to earth, and chased other solicitors relentlessly to push my move over the line. Very satisfied with the service.

Berlad Graham was recommended for my house sale. I was assigned Claire Gallacher who was a pleasure to deal with. Her polite and professional manner responding to all queries promptly made this sale easy and stress free. Nothing was too much trouble, keeping me updated throughout with her efficiency and positivity. Thank you Claire.

An excellent service. Claire kept us well informed and reassured about the whole process which was quite comforting as this was our first property purchase and we knew nothing about it to start with. She went through the details meticulously and did her best to speed up the process. Overall we are quite satisfied with the service provided and would definitely recommend to anyone needing of the legal assistance.

We've recently bought our home and used Berlad Graham. We cannot fault the service provided. Laura, Claire and Rebecca dealt with our sale and were all very friendly helpful and professional in their roles and always very prompt to answer any queries or concerns. Would highly recommend and would not hesitate in using Berlad Graham again.
