All legal persons, be they human or corporate, are endowed with numerous rights under Irish law. In a society where so many parties interact it is inevitable that claims by interests bestowed with competing rights will result in disputes.
Resolving such disputes can be stressful, time consuming and expensive. It is therefore essential that you have access to advisors who will listen to your needs, concerns and goals and offer clear pragmatic advice to ensure your rights are protected.
At M.E.Hanahoe solicitors we have been assisting clients resolve disputes and enforce their rights since we opened our doors in 1939. Since then our dedicated Dispute Resolution Department has acquired a track record for successfully representing private and commercial clients in both individual and group disputes and has established a firm reputation for both excellence and reliability.
We have advised our clients in conflicts against individuals, private companies, healthcare providers, professional service providers and state bodies in numerous complex and high stake litigation matters. High profile work has included a state appointment to represent the victims and families of the Stardust disaster and direct negotiations with the Department of Education and Science for the establishment of the Residential Institutions Redress Board before which we represented over 1300 clients.
We have advised our clients in disputes against individuals in the District, Circuit, High and Supreme Courts as well as the Solicitor’s Disciplinary Tribunal, the Irish Medical Council and various Accountancy bodies. We annually institute and defend hundreds of litigation matters ranging from Road Traffic Accidents to Breaches of Contract.
