Clare Presley appointed Roche Legal’s first partner

Clare Presley has been appointed as Roche Legal’s first partner and will play a key role in the expansion of the York-based multi-award winning firm of solicitors.

Clare is a specialised Private Client solicitor with 13 years’ experience of working in the York area and a fully Accredited Member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), an independent, national organisation of lawyers who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable clients, their families and carers.

Roche Legal was set up by Rachel Roche in 2014 and she said: “Like many businesses, we have made changes to adapt to what has been an uncertain time and have brought together a team of bright, energetic, organised, and flexible individuals, who are willing to work together to take the firm to the next level and as a partner, Clare is central to this. “

Clare, who has achieved the Older Client Care in Practice (OCCP) Award from SFE, said: “Client care is central to everything we do at Roche Legal  and we are committed to ensuring the process is as streamlined as possible. Before the impact of the pandemic many clients may not have heard of Zoom, or used WhatsApp, and it is clear that technology  plays, and will continue to play, an increasing role. Roche Legal remains at the forefront of embracing innovative ideas.

“Because Rachel has been ahead of the curve in the way new technology has been integrated into  how we work, we are able to offer clients a range of meeting options and it is about being flexible. People are also very proud of being from York and value a local connection.”
