Conveyancing

Our practice has s considerable conveyancing aspect.

Probate

Our firm has advised people in making Wills from the most simple forms to complex Wills incorporating discretionary trusts for minor children and vulnerable family members. We encourage all our Clients to execute an Enduring Power of Attorneys in the initiation of the Registered Power. We have handled all aspects from the initial preparation of the document up to its registration in the Wards of Court Office. We have dealt with the administration of both small and large estates without the necessity of extracting representation to substantial estates including extracting Grants of Representation where necessary, advising Executors, the removal of Caveats and discharging Capital Gains liabilities.

Personal Injury Litigation

We have advised many Clients who have had the misfortune of being injured through no fault of their own, including requesting Medico-Legal Reports from their General Practitioner, lodging Form As with the Personal Injuries Assessment Board, negotiating settlements with Counsel and taking the matter to full hearing.

Litigation

We have represented both Plaintiffs and Defendants in District Court, Circuit Court and High Court proceedings covering a broad range of issues from small consumer related disputes to defamation cases, breach of copyright, specific performance, allegations of oppression of minority shareholders and suchlike. We have extensive experience in debt collection and bank enforcement matters.

Employment

An area of Law much changed in recent years with the establishment of the Workplace Relations Commission. We have extensive experience and have dealt with numerous employment law matters before the Commission, from drafting and advising on Employment Contacts, to the negotiation and finalisation of severance packages and dealing with issues arising in redundancy.

Landlord + Tenant

Another area of rapid change of late, Landlord and Tenant matters have always been to the forefront of the practice and we have advised and acted in everything from residential tenancies to extensive and complex commercial tenancies in major shopping and office complexes and the subsequent enforcement of such leases. We have advised both Landlords and Tenants on all issues including Schedules of Dilapidations, change of use, rent reviews, forfeitures and suchlike. We have represented our clients’ interests both before the Residential Tenancies Board and before arbitrators in commercial lease matters.

Commercial

We have acted in the disposals of high value assets sales agreements and private companies to individuals and to multinational companies. We have also advised in relation to Franchise Agreements, Banking Contracts, Shareholder Agreements, taking security for loans and liquidations.

Licensing

We annually deal with matters in the Licensing Courts, including the renewal of Club and Public Music and Dance Licences to the acquisition of a Theatre Licence.

General Advices

Prosecutions under the Road Traffic Acts provide a regular source of work and during in the past we have represented an accused in a Dangerous Driving Causing Death Prosecution from the initial appearance in the District Court to the jury verdict in the subsequent Circuit Court Trial.
