The team at Abacus Legal are pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Lavelle and Lavelle Partners LLP as our Business Solicitor Dublin. The backing of over thirty-five years’ experience of legal practice in business and commercial law, Lavelle Partners has an industry wide reputation for achieving results for commercial clients.
As a mid-size practice, it has the flexibility to be accessible and approachable to small and new business, whilst also meeting the needs of large corporate clients. Its partner-led approach to client relationships and its focus on the key deliverables of high-quality legal advice and first-rate service are the main drivers of this long-established commercial law firm. It prides itself in particular on its support for new and emerging SME’s in Ireland. From its Managing Partner Michael Lavelle to its varied team of commercial lawyers, the firm is more reactive and less bureaucratic than its larger counterparts. Access to the Partners is often a key component of business leaders and decision makers. Whilst larger firms often apply a multi person team, this cost heavy model may not suit medium sized business working within a budget. At Lavelle Partners LLP their client relationships are established with this in mind.
Reflecting on the year that was Michael acknowledges the challenges going forward with Covid-19 in Ireland for the firm’s client base. He in particular is concerned about the firm’s SME clients who not only have to pivot to the new commercial landscape but also must now deal with the many outstanding issues that the temporary business closures have raised. He anticipates a large component of 2021 will involve restructuring, mergers and acquisitions for many businesses in Ireland. The firm has positioned its business and commercial lawyers to be ready for this outcome. It is also ready to advise and protect potentially insolvent businesses and their directors of their options for business continuity. Any new business that is expected to follow would be well advised to start their business journey with the proper advice from the outset.
The addition of such an established commercial law firm in Dublin to our Network is something we are pleased to confirm. The first-class business support that clients of Lavelle Partners LLP can expect made them an obvious choice as our Business Solicitor Dublin.
