Purchase and Sale of Land in Ireland

The Irish Constitution guarantees the property rights of every citizen. The transfer of property from one to another is governed by the contractual relationship of the parties involved. Each party to a conveyancing transaction (transfer of property) requires to retain the services of a Solicitor (Lawyer).

Personal Injuries (*)

The most common form of civil action taken in the Courts of Ireland relate to actions for the recovery of compensation for personal injuries caused by the negligent act of a defendant party. Due to the present delays in the Irish Court system it is extremely important that a clients case is pursued with speed and efficiency.

Irish Wills and Probate

Due to our history our system of inheritance is based on the English legal system of succession. This basis was, however, altered substantially by the passing of the Succession Act, 1965. This legislation governs succession rights in the event of intestacy (no will) of the deceased and indeed the Act also provides certain protections for the deceased spouse .

Commercial - Company Law

We can form companies within ten days and tailor them to your needs. Thereafter we will advise you on all aspects of Irish company law, including, rights and duties of Directors and Shareholders, legal aspects of company borrowing/loans, and related matters. The Competition Act and related E.U. directives and decisions of the Irish and European Courts can be a minefield unless expert advice is obtained. These laws are somewhat similar to American anti-trust legislation. Our firm also advises in the areas of:

  • Consumer Law
  • Criminal Law
  • Employment, Health and Safety Law.
  • Family Law
  • Labour Law
  • Licensing Law

As clients requirements will not always follow such traditional divisions, we will assign , if necessary, more than one solicitor to a particular task.

Our firm has for more than fifty years prided itself on its professional but personal approach to its clients and their work.


(*) In contentious business, a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or portion of any award or settlement.
