During David Lavelle’s tenure as Managing Partner, over a period of 18 years, the firm grew from being a small country practice, to one of Ireland’s leading and most progressive law firms, employing 19 solicitors and more than 43 staff.

He is committed to building on this going forward in order to ensure the firm grows from strength to strength.
