Client Reviews

Bill Ingram,
SourceChain Marketplace

Where others flapped and embellished, Deirdre cut through the noise, understood our needs and delivered the results we required. Having worked with may corporate law firms over the years their ability to waste time and resource on long winded, jumped up documentation still leaves me flabbergasted, thankfully not the case with Deirdre. Could not recommend highly enough for Data Protection and Commercial Contract support/advice.

Joe Barrett,
Applegreen PLC

We are always impressed with the practical approach and commercial sense that the partners bring to help resolve our legal issues. Their knowledge of employment law in particular is excellent but it is their ‘always reachable’ attitude that impresses us most.

Cormac Manning,

We have many legal requirements from commercial agreements to employment law advice. Sherwin O’Riordan are always there to steer us through all our legal issues and the fee level is always very reasonable.

Derek Byrne,
Electroplus Group

Every time I call James, or one of his partners, I get them and they deal with any issues I have with a minimum of fuss and commercial approach. They also have a genuine interest in my company. As a result, they are now our first call before we make a decision to do anything that might impact our business in any way. Their knowledge and service are second to none.

Justin Cahill,
CMC Platform Financials

We simply cannot fault the service we receive from SOR. They have specialist solicitors in each area where we need advice and we’ve had contact with 4 different partners during the last 14 months, and the experience has been the same each time. Really really good.

Ron Walsh,
Manepa Limited

We were really impressed with the practical approach and commercial sense both partners brought to our transaction. Their knowledge on the financial documents and commercial agreements was impressive but it was their ‘always reachable’ attitude that impressed us most.

Shane Crilly,
Base Pizza

We are an industry leader in the area of high end pizza creation and delivery. We have many legal requirements from commercial agreements to employment law advices. Sherwin O’Riordan are always there to steer us through all our legal issues and the fee level is always very reasonable.

Geoff Ryan,

We are a growing software firm, with an international blue chip customer base. We have found the Sherwin O’Riordan team to be reliable, very responsive in cases of tight deadlines, business focused and have given us sound commercial legal advice.

Carol Boate,
National Lottery Regulator

Deirdre is a superbly able and effective strategy and policy professional. She has the rare combination of not only the ability to understand and distill complex issues but also the skills to communicate with a variety of people across organisations and at different levels. Deirdre has a tremendous depth of knowledge and experience of Irish regulatory, technology and legal fields. I would have no hesitation in recommending Deirdre.
