Comprehensiveness, thoroughness, lucidity, candidness and trustworthiness are the main attributes I associate with the Lavelle Partners team based on my experience with them to date. They excel at (a) setting out and contextualising the legal concerns associated with disputed issues, as well as (b) exploring alternative engagement and resolution options, and (c) skillfully advising and expeditiously following-through on appropriately selected courses of action.’

Ciarán Leavy is the outstanding partner. Ciarán is, without doubt, the best solicitor I have encountered in my 45 years dealing with that profession. He is extraordinarily shrewd and sharp in respect of the pertinent legal issues but he is also exceptionally discerning about the related human and ethical dimensions of those issues as they apply ab initio and in the context of unfolding circumstances. In short, he combines efficiency and effectiveness with thoughtful considerateness, along with being both approachable and an especially clear communicator.’
