Due to the economic downturn of the Irish economy and the worldwide recession the importance of debt collection has come to the fore as a result of the lack of liquidity in the marketplace. It has been magnified since 2008 with the collapse of many worldwide financial institutions. Consequently, banks have either withdrawn or reduced credit facilities to business and the impact has led to firms being unable to discharge their debts in a timely fashion due to the diminished circular flow of funds. This is a time for careful credit control and we can assist you with debt collection services.
Our firm is skilled and experienced in debt collection procedures and the enforcement of court judgments in Ireland.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is conveyancing?
With regards to property law, conveyancing is a legally required process during the purchase and sale of a property. This process ensures that all parties meet their legal obligations and protects your rights throughout the transaction. A conveyancing solicitor will assist with all aspects of the title transfer and settlement process.
How long does Probate take?
The length of time required to complete Probate will vary depending on the individual circumstances of each case. These variables include the number of assets left behind by the deceased, the number of properties, the size of the inheritance, etc. On average, it takes approximately 4-8 months to fully complete Probate, however, more complicated estates should be prepared for a considerably longer process.
How much compensation can I get for a personal injury* claim?
There is no set amount of compensation for personal injury* cases. The amount of compensation you may receive will depend on the nature of the injuries you have sustained, how long they persist for, who is responsible for the accident, and the contents of the medical reports. Once we have reviewed your case we can advise as to the amount of compensation you are likely to receive.
Can I be fired for making a claim against my employer?
Depending on the severity of the issue, most people will choose to leave the company they are taking legal action against. However, you do not have to do so and you are fully within your rights to make a claim against your current employer while still working for them. By law, your employer cannot dismiss you or force you to leave your job for bringing a claim against them.
