HOMS Solicitors provide a wide range of legal services nationwide, delivering quality, knowledge, experience and value; collectively working in partnership with our clients, investing in our people while supporting the communities in which we operate.
HOMS Solicitors was founded when the three separate practices of Gordon Holmes, Michael O’Malley and James Sexton joined together. Established in 1970, the firm goes back many years and has since then remained at the forefront of the legal arena.
We provide nationwide legal services from our offices in Dublin, Limerick and Cork in a complete range of commercial and personal legal services through our twenty seven practice areas. In June 2017 we extended our reach outside Ireland for the first time by establishing an office facility in London. The office is situated in the heart of the City of London. We are available to offer advice to UK businesses considering opening an office in Ireland, as well as better serving our current Irish and UK clients located there.
We are one of the top twenty largest law firms in Ireland, having fourteen partners and over forty solicitors, with a total head count of over 140 staff. We are a client focused firm whose experienced solicitors work closely with clients to gain an in-depth understanding of their objectives to ensure that we achieve the best possible result. We continue to grow and are passionate about attracting and retaining the best legal personnel and developing their talent and legal acumen.
We have always had a commitment to quality legal services, delivering legal services to the highest prevailing standards in the profession. We consistently adhere to systems, policies and procedures in order to ensure this standard of service is delivered to our clients. In October 2019 we were again awarded a Gold grade, 98%, in the Q9000 Risk Management Legal Quality Standard Certification after a full and comprehensive audit by the Institute of Legal Research and Standards. The Q9000, which is recognised by the Law Society of Ireland, is the most advanced strategic, risk and quality management standard awarded by the Institute to law firms demonstrating exceptional levels of strategic, innovation and quality management.
The Legal 500, an esteemed legal directory of quality law firms, lists Holmes O’Malley Sexton amongst their top Irish law firms, and has done for a number of years. Also of note is our ranking in the Chambers and Partners legal directory.
We received outstanding recognition and were named winners in the Irish Law Awards 2015, 2014 and 2012. In 2016 we were finalists in a total of three award categories. In 2017 we won the Best Employer: Talent Development and Workplace Wellness Award at the Limerick Chamber Regional Business Awards 2017. We were rated seventh out of the top ten Irish legal graduate employers by Grad Ireland in 2018.
We have a commitment to corporate social responsibility and contribute to the local and national communities and charities through numerous sponsorships and fundraisers, as well as individuals being directors and board members of various organisations. Our commitment to corporate social responsibility and the wider community was recently recognised when we were shortlisted in the Chambers Ireland CSR Awards 2019.
