Overview

Our lawyers take the time to get to know the businesses and people we support. We work closely with our clients, to partner with them and understand how best to create bespoke practical and commercial solutions. We pride ourselves on always striving to add value by actively working with our clients to design practices, procedures and solutions that are tailored to their business, their strategy and their people. 
 
We recognise that most clients want to avoid disputes with their employees. We are creative and experienced in using mediation and collaborative dispute resolution methods where appropriate to bring parties to a commercial resolution.
We also recognise that clients sometimes need a swift and strong response to protect their businesses and their key talent. We have a wide range of experience securing injunctions for clients to protect their interests and defending injunctions brought by employees and directors. 
 
Our team has extensive experience advising on all aspects of Irish employment law, benefits, incentives and immigration. We represent clients in high value corporate transactions, complex High Court proceedings, WRC claims and complex investigations. We support a wide range of clients to design and implement best practices for their workplaces.
