‘They have the scale required so that the team do not disappear just when you need them to work on another client. Sandra Egan has been very thorough in chasing down at times difficult issues and counterparts. George Kennedy has always been available to talk about stuff when required and help on broader commercial advice. I also see a firm, especially managing partner Harry Fehily, committed to supporting pro bono work and not-for-profit organisations and the broader Limerick environment.’
