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!


A big thank you to Claire.

Claire was recommended to us when we selling our house. She was efficient , professional and friendly , and we were so impressed that when we then went on to purchase our new home ,we had no hesitation in asking Claire to do the conveyancing for us. House selling and purchasing can be a very anxious process - large financial transactions are involved, not to mention the upheaval that moving home entails. But with Claire on the case we felt reassured and knew our affairs were in steady, capable hands. A big thank you to Claire and Laura. Anne Harnett

Laura and Claire were professional, efficient and supportive throughout our recent house sale and purchase.

It wasn't the most straight forward, but their perseverance paid off. This is the second time we have moved house with Laura's support and we are delighted with the service. We have recommended the team to everyone we know! Mrs Sarah Hargreaves

I have been most impressed with Claire's dedication to the job.

She stands out because she takes ownership of the case, supporting and defending our interest as if it was her own. With Claire, you can be assured you won't be a file number. Despite the large amount of work, she will make sure to individualise, personalise the contact. She is efficient, competent and swift. The communications are almost in real time. Congratulations Claire for a good job done. Axel Putzeys

Feedback on Claire from a client on September 6, 2021

Both Laura and Claire have been absolutely BRILLIANT.

They have both been very professional and Laura, my solicitor was exceptionally knowledgeable. I have mental health problems and both Laura & Claire where extremely empathetic, patient and instantly put me at ease. The sale of the house was particularly complicated, the house had been bought through a Trust Fund. Laura was the only solicitor who had the experience to help me sell the house. I had tried many solicitors in my area, not one of them had the expertise to deal with it and wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Both Laura & Claire were very quick to reply to my many questions, nothing was too much trouble for them. Berlad Graham should be very proud of them, you couldn't ask for more dedicated employees, they are an asset to your company and in my eyes deserve a pay rise because of their shear dedication to the job. I would recommend them 100 percent. Yvonne Herron

I cannot thank Claire and Laura enough.

I’m sure they where glad to see the back of my purchase! Nothing was too much even though it took a lot more work than it should have to complete. Without the support of Claire I absolutely would have withdrawn my offer and wouldn’t be living in my beautiful house now! Communication was easy, friendly and above all honest. I cannot fault these guys at all! Will be recommending them highly to any friends and family! Thanks again! You’re the best! M Johnston

Laura and Claire were both absolutely brilliant.

They were efficient, hard working, great at communicating, thoughtful, calm, and knowledgeable. I can not fault them. Both my estate agent and the buyers solicitor sung their praises which is a rarity. I used Laura and Claire this year to sell my flat and buy my house and both processes were optimised by their hard work. Although the process of buying and selling was stressful and lots of bumps in the road, none of them were from Laura and Claire and in fact their presence and roles were invaluable. I definitely would recommend them and use them again. Dr Karen Treisman
