Fees

Our Fees

At Cahir & Co. we are happy to discuss our fees and charges with our clients. We are fully regulated by the Law Society of Ireland and ensure that our clients are furnished with a contract of engagement and a fee quotation as soon as practical in relation to any matter in which we take instructions.

We feel it is important in building relationships with our clients, that they are at all times appraised of the work that we are doing on their behalf, the goals and expectations that they have from the instructions that they are furnishing to us. The costs that will be associated with those instructions and the likelihood of them recovering those costs from a third party. The Law Society have published a useful leaflet titled information in relation to legal charges which we supply to our clients.

We are always happy to discuss any concerns that our clients or perspective clients may have in relation to fees and their ability to pay fees and we believe that open communication strengthens the Solicitor client relationship.

We had an issue regarding a boundary issue with my neighbour; I contacted Sharon for advice on obtaining adverse possession; while Sharon explained the process thoroughly and what the process entails, she also suggested perhaps some easier alternatives, such as negotiation or her preferred choice, mediation. This was something we hadn’t considered ourselves. I was delighted that we had contacted Cahir solicitors as they saved us so much time and hassle in the end.
