Clare Presley appointed Roche Legal’s first partner

Clare Presley has become the first partner to be appointed at Roche Legal and will play a key role in the expansion of the York-based firm of solicitors.

Presley is a specialised private client solicitor with 13 years of experience of working in the York area.

She is also 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.

The law firm’s founder and managing partner, Rachel Roche, said of the role Presley will play as a partner: “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.”

Presley, who has achieved the Older Client Care in Practice Award from SFE, added: “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.”
