We prefer straight talking – clarity, not complexity.
Make no mistake, the law is a complex business. But the way we speak about it and explain it shouldn’t be.
The same goes for our approach to problem-solving – which is, in effect, what clients ask from us. The most direct route to a solution is not only the most efficient, we believe, it’s often the most cost-effective too.
Clients respect us for that – clients ranging from major PLCs, private equity providers, banks and private companies to large-scale property developers, leading retailers and international media organisations.
The market respects us too: we’re regularly commended in professional directories for the high quality of our services and our distinctive approach.
We’re based in Northern Ireland but we work everywhere. Through an association with leading Dublin law firm Byrne Wallace, we offer a seamless and superior all-Ireland legal service.
Many of our lawyers are qualified to act in both Northern Ireland and England. This means we are able to carry out property and corporate transactions based in England and Wales.
As many of our clients like to have us by their side when negotiating deals in foreign jurisdictions, we are regularly involved in high-level corporate and commercial transactions in Ireland, Great Britain, mainland Europe and indeed worldwide.
So wherever you need us, there we are.

We deliver that in a number of ways.
No business operates in a vacuum. We’re all connected to the communities within which we live and work.
We regularly provide extensive pro-bono support to local businesses, charities and community organisations. We also actively encourage staff to involve themselves in community-focused causes.
Our staff take part in the Belfast Marathon each year in support of local charity, which for the past two years has been NI Children’s Hospice. Staff also regularly participate in local volunteer days; and every year the firm raises funds and donates toys to the St Vincent de Paul and Salvation Army joint Family Appeal.
We are now supporting PIPS charity.
We acknowledge our responsibility to carry out our business in a sustainable way, and we continue to strive for best practice in terms of:
There’s always more that can be done, we know. But we’re getting there.
