Claire’s path first crossed with James O’Donnell, who runs the firm with his wife Rebecca, as the pair started the academic stage of their career together at University in Manchester 20 years ago.

Claire explained: “My husband is a member of Mossley Running Club and ran the 10k two years ago. We attended the BBQ after the event, which O’Donnell Solicitors sponsored.

“Mark introduced me to James. The rest is history!

“We recalled our university days with fondness and it became quickly apparent that Becky, James and I have the same outlook both on life and on our profession and careers.

“We kept in touch and I’ve been following the brilliant success of the firm and am delighted to now join it.

“I just think it’s a great, vibrant young law firm with a good ethos for getting the job done.”

Claire is renowned through the real estate industry and focuses on residential, new build and real estate finance.

James O’Donnell, director, welcomed her to the team, saying: “This is another major appointment for the firm which will take us to yet another level.

“Claire has demonstrated her tenacity in her field. She is a formidable Property Lawyer and brings vast experience to head up our already thriving Property department.

“Claire’s appointment is another example of local talent coming away from the larger firms to work with the team here at O’Donnell Solicitors.

“There is no doubt that this is another significant appointment in the continued growth of the firm.

“We welcome Claire to the team and look forward to another great year for O’Donnell Solicitors through 2018.”

Claire, who lives locally with her husband Mark and three young children, is secretary of Mossley Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society and has been performing with them since she was 16.

She concluded: “I look forward to being part of O Donnell Solicitors’ continued growth and success and working with local businesses, developers and people.”
