Authoritative organisational and personal services in employment and pensions law.


Authoritative organisational and personal services in employment and pensions law provided by our specialist solicitors

Employment law is a rapidly evolving area. Not only has there been a huge amount of legislation in the past number of years but the establishment of the various authorities and tribunals, and the demands of the modern workforce, mean that employers have to be ever more flexible and vigilant in their approach to employment law. Our solicitors are able to advise on all aspects of the employment relationship from recruitment and selection through to termination of employment.

  • Recruitment, application, interview and selection processes
  • Employment contracts, consultancy agreements, staff booklets and workplace policies and procedures
  • Employment law advises on a day to day basis (including health and safety, equality, industrial relations, bullying and harassment, leave entitlements, notice periods, fixed term and part time workers)
  • Grievance, disciplinary and investigative processes
  • Termination of employment, including unfair dismissals, severance agreements and redundancy
  • Courts and tribunals representation
  • Corporate transactions and TUPE.


The Pensions Acts 1990 – 2008 and the establishment of the Pensions Board heralded a new era of pension regulation in Ireland.  We provide advice on all areas of pension compliance to companies, individuals and trustees.

  • Trust deeds and rules of pension schemes
  • Roles, obligations and responsibilities of members, scheme auditors, employers and trustees
    Pensions Acts
  • Pension corporate governance
  • Pension provisions in employment contracts
  • Corporate transactions.
