Brief overview of my career:
I trained as a solicitor
with a Big 5 firm in Dublin where I also completed the Institute of Tax exams,
after which I specialised in the area of tax for seven years in Dublin.
In 2007 I moved to
London and made the change to property in a large West London firm where I
worked in the areas of commercial property and banking before returning to
Dublin in 2015.
A desire to raise my young
family in Ireland brought me back home and I was delighted to join the team in
Lavelle where I lead the Property and Banking department.
Professional memberships & accreditations:
- Admitted to the Law Society of Ireland
- Admitted to the Law Society of England & Wales
- Member of the Irish Tax Institute
What I offer my clients:
I have extensive
experience in the Irish and UK markets, having worked for a significant period
in London. This gives me the ability to offer comprehensive advice to clients
across both jurisdictions in property, tax and banking matters. I can identify
and explain issues early in transactions, provide a path to completion and
ensure my clients secure the best deal possible.
Why I love what I do:
I love the satisfaction
of completing a transaction for a client, whether straightforward or complex. I
enjoy giving commercial advice and problem-solving.
Personal interests :
I love reading, skiing and travelling to far-flung destinations. However, due to young children, these pursuits are on hiatus, having been temporarily replaced by providing a combined children’s taxi, hairdressing and general dogsbody service. I love listening to podcasts on my daily commute and am always searching for new recommendations.
