About Catherine Cole

Following a career in hospitality, I began working in private client law in 2002. I joined Goughs in 2017 and within 2 years I was promoted to an Associate. I have an empathy with clients and their situations and use the law to work with them to help them to achieve positive outcomes.

What I like about working for Goughs

I am proud to work for Goughs. We have an excellent reputation locally and are committed to providing excellent service to all clients. There is a genuine spirit of cooperation and shared goals all revolving around helping our clients. We all support each other and work together to offer creative feedback and then make ideas a reality. I have a great degree of control and freedom within my role, constantly evolving and every day is different.

Accreditations / certifications / panel representation:

Holder of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Certificate in Advanced Will Drafting and Certificate in Trusts and Estates

Member of the Dementia Action Alliance

Member of the Calne Chamber of Commerce committee


I deal with all aspects of private client work, with a particular interest in Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Administration of Estates.

I am a trained Dementia Friends Champion and I encourage others to make a positive difference to people living with dementia in the community by giving information about the personal impact of dementia, and what they can do to help.

I am a member of the Dementia Action Alliance in Calne and I volunteer at the Calne Memory Club.

I sit on the Calne Chamber of Commerce committee.

Greatest Achievement

I am a keen runner and cyclist and belong to a local triathlon club. My greatest sporting achievement is running four marathons including the Virgin London marathon twice. I am an England Athletics Leader in Running fitness. I set up the ‘Goughs Galloper’s – a running team open to all employees. During the Covid-19 lockdowns, I set various challenges for employees to encourage exercise and promote mental health and wellbeing.

Supported by...

I am supported by Lauren Dade, who is an experienced, secretary/administrator. She is organised and conscientious and I have full confidence in her. She is well respected by clients and co-workers. I could not do my job efficiently without her!

Testimonials from clients

My recent cases

I have recently been dealing with a particularly complicated and onerous estate for a deceased gentleman who owned a portfolio of properties, including one in Spain. Having worked on a couple of other cases involving Spanish properties, I engaged the services of an excellent Spanish lawyer who I have worked with previously and between us, we are dealing with all the hurdles of selling the property on behalf of the beneficiaries.
