Our story

At Coulter Roache, we trace our origins back to 1935 when Frank Gargan embarked as a sole practitioner. In 1969 Kevin Roache joined Frank to create Gargan & Roache, which merged with Coulter Burke in 2002 to become Coulter Roache Lawyers.

By investing in our people and our processes, we have become a leading law firm known for providing exceptional service. Our reputation draws talented lawyers and sharp young minds to work with us. Today we use the latest technologies to learn and develop our expertise, manage knowledge across locations, share our insights and communicate with our clients.
