Established in 1979 by Owen Ness and Michael Gallagher, Ness Gallagher is proud of it’s history and to be recognised today as a respected leading law firm and a trusted advisor in Lanarkshire. The firm has grown rapidly since it’s inception and we now have almost 30 staff and two offices.
We exist for our clients and always put their needs first. As a full-service law firm, we look after both our clients’ personal and professional needs. We differ from other law firms as our Partners are true legal experts with in-depth experience in all areas of the law. This means that whether you are buying a house, writing a Will, getting divorced or have a commercial dispute or matter that needs resolved, you will have the same point of contact for all your legal matters. This helps us understand your full ‘story’ and allows us to support you, your family, and your business.
Our values of honesty, loyalty, commitment, client focus, and striving for excellence, are integral to our daily decision making and the way we work with our clients, helping to create a positive environment for all those around us. It’s why our clients come back to us, and refer their family and friends to us too.
We try to reduce our carbon footprint and to make a positive difference in all that we do. We invest in our staff and care about their wellbeing, reflected in the low staff turnover we have always had at the firm, with many staff being with Ness Gallagher for over 30 years.
With offices in both Wishaw and Motherwell, supporting our local communities is part of our ethos, and in recent years we have taken part in various fundraising activities, helping to support local charities and good causes. We act for St Andrew’s Hospice in Lanarkshire and participate in their annual Hospice Will Month where we write Wills for members of the public for free in return for a donation to the hospice. Ness Gallagher also sponsors Dalziel Dragons Rugby team in Motherwell and an academic prize at Clyde Valley High School in Wishaw.
