‘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.’
‘Sandra Egan has been exceptional. She is very prompt in responding to our requests and explains everything clearly. She is solution focused and proactively works to get complex negotiations over the line for us. Her knowledge, attention to detail and awareness of future risk is excellent.’ ‘Sandra Egan is very knowledgeable and very accessible to us on any query of our real estate business transactions.’ ‘A great business partner. The one-to-one service provided is top class. The attention to detail is excellent. Sandra Egan leads the team extremely well and its clear that her team are getting good sound advice on matters. I would also mention Melissa Regan who is fantastic to deal with.’
‘There is good attention to detail. The objective of the client is firstly identified and the service is tailored to the needs of the client. They value your business in a personal capacity.’ ‘Helpful and friendly, practical advice.’
‘An outstanding practice of long standing. The practice does not interact with clients as solely customers of a solution, process or transaction but as partners with whom the firm participates in mutual long-term benefit and pride. Harry Fehily is totally committed to the best interest of his client. Pat McInerney is a generalist of no limit because his good sense knows no boundaries. Sandra Egan makes complex aggressive transactions in acquisition and business transfer look simple. Caitriona Leahy is always well ahead of the client’s responses and delivery is her strong focus.’
