McGarry & Co Solicitors

Your Legal Companion

Welcome to McGarry&Co Solicitors

We are an expanding full service rural law firm with offices in Barnard Castle, Leyburn, Hawes and Sedbergh who have built our reputation upon an excellent level of service where the client is the focus of our attention.

We provide a wide variety of legal services, including Private Client law, family law, commercial and residential property conveyancing and general commercial law with an emphasis on agricultural and rural issues. We are members of the Society of Trusts & Estates Practitioners, Solicitors for the Elderly and the Agricultural Law Association.


We are most conscious that our clients require reliable, uninterrupted service, but in the present pandemic emergency, this may prove to be difficult. Please however be assured that we will do all we can.

In light of recent developments surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the latest advice from the UK Government, we want to share with you the measures which we are taking to ensure service continuity whilst at the same time ensuring the health and wellbeing of clients and ourselves.

Whilst we will try wherever necessary to see clients face to face, there are circumstances where this will not be possible or indeed desirable. In these circumstances we will use telephone meetings, skype and face time. We are trying to ensure that wherever possible there will be “business as usual”. There may be circumstances where remote working is arranged and our technology and infrastructure and business continuity planning ensures that remote working is possible with minimal interruption to normal service levels. That said, we cannot say at this point that we will not be required to close our offices.

As always, we remain committed to supporting you with a high level of service and provide the maximum support we can. We will continue to monitor the situation providing any updates where necessary.

We know that the pandemic presents challenges to our clients. We want to re-assure you that we will continue to be available to support you during this time; please continue to use our normal contact details.

We are taking appropriate steps to re-arrange any up and coming internal and external appointments to a later date where possible and in the meantime we are limiting clients visits to our office to one client or cohort of clients at any one time.

We have found him to be loyal, dependable, efficient and most importantly incredibly caring of our interests and needs as a client. When acting for us commercially he acts as one of the team and when looking after us personally he feels part of the family.”
