Message from Managing Partner, James Sherwin

Since the founding of our firm in 2002, we have prided ourselves on providing superior legal representation and dedicated service to clients. David O’Riordan and I started our firm with two defining characteristics: a relentless focus on the best interests of our clients and a commitment to long-term planning that ensures that the firm continuously evolves at a pace that best serves our clients' business needs

This approach has helped the firm grow to a vibrant firm consisting of 13 Solicitors with substantial experience in a wide range of legal disciplines and a client base ranging from individuals, SME’s to large companies.

The diversity of our practice, our strong work ethic, respectful treatment of our clients, and prompt responsiveness to their needs all have contributed to the firm’s success. We value our relationships with our clients and commit ourselves to building those relationships on mutual trust, focus on objectives, and results.

Through a collaborative approach with our clients, we provide sound advice and guidance. As Managing Partner, it is my privilege to ensure that our firm continues to serve the needs of our clients and remains true to the principles that have sustained us for two decades. We look forward to continuing to work with our existing clients and to earn the trust of new clients.

We look forward to hearing from you.

James Sherwin
