Client-centred, professional,  cost-effective services

We represent employers and employees in the areas of Unfair Dismissal, Bullying, Stress in the Workplace and compliance with Employment Legislation.

The law in relation to employment has changed dramatically in the last number of years when Ireland’s membership of the European Union gave rise to additional employee rights and employer obligations. We have the necessary experience and knowledge to advise our clients in relation to employment issues from both an Employer and Employee perspective.
