Testimonials

‘Availability, reliability and technical knowledge of the practice area (litigation and personal insolvency) are industry leading. Fulfil the brief in being a competent, responsive and dependable partner to our business.’

‘Emma Keegan has delivered hands on personal service to our organisation from the inception of the working relationship. Making herself personally available to troubleshoot complex issues and to work collaboratively to form efficiencies in the day-to-day case management. This means that the service provided by Beauchamps is client-specific and targets our particular needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.’

‘Thomas O’Dwyer is a stand-out partner – interested, energetic, and always available to do what’s best for the client.’

‘Beauchamps has continually delivered exceptional service to our organisation over the last three years. I find their ability to form pragmatic commercial solutions to complex legal issues a real benefit to their clients and something which sets them apart from their competitors.’

‘Co-operation and knowledge sharing between partners is excellent. We have found a relatively seamless process to brief one partner and to receive follow up support from a separate technical expert who has an in-depth understanding of our requirements.’

‘Our primary contact is with Barry Cahir. Barry has shown himself to be fully committed to support our business and has demonstrated excellent understanding of the key challenges that the business has faced. He has also supported each of the members of our team in managing these challenges. ’

‘Beauchamps are always on hand and available to give sound advice which meets our business needs, they make it easy for us to find solutions to complex issues.’

‘Stephen McLaughlin’s knowledge and expertise on statutory interpretation and judicial review are highly valuable to our business. He is strategic, pragmatic and solution focused.’

‘Ed Lyons is highly competent, strategic and knowledgeable about the way we do business and this is highly valuable in the context of dispute resolution.’

‘Sandra Masterson Power is expert in her field and we value her advice which is always well reasoned, pragmatic, strategic and solution focused. ’

‘The team are extremely knowledgeable on legal and business issues. However what makes Beauchamps stand out from other panel firms is their responsiveness, transparency and they are respectful of cost-sensitivity issues that can arise from time to time. They have a great understanding of the commercial and personal business, and so from a legal perspective they can work out an appropriate strategy at the very early stages of any litigation. As an add-on to the provision of legal services and support, they also provide us with a tailored ‘Knowledge Update’, which I and others on the team certainly find very informative and useful. Beauchamps provide us with wonderful customer service. In order to stand out from the crowd, panel firms in today’s legal environment need to put customer service at the heart of everything that they do. This is where Beauchamps excels. The team are extremely courteous and genuinely care. They are great at taking ownership of the issues and continuously follow up. They display great teamwork, which is so important when managing litigation cases.’

Testimonials

‘The energy team in Beauchamps spend time to get to know our energy projects individually and therefore can be (and are) proactive in providing advice on issues as they arise and certainly before they can become critical.’

‘We work with Ainsley Heffernan; Ainsley is the reason we moved to Beauchamps from our previous adviser and the reason we are still with them. Apart from the benefits of his long experience in the wind sector Ainsley has a very commercial approach to complex issues – this instinct cuts to the key points and facilitates a faster resolution of issues. Ainsley is also a very personable individual, a good person to discuss industry churn with at any time.’

‘It is reassuring to know that Beauchamps have considerable experience and expertise in the field. They understand the commercial subtleties of complex legal agreements which is invaluable.’

‘Ainsley Heffernan is an expert in the energy sector who is able to quickly identify the key issues and present deliverable solutions. I would have no hesitation in putting him in to bat on any energy project.’

‘Ainsley Heffernan is both a highly specialised renewables lawyer with in-depth knowledge of the Irish renewables market and an extremely capable corporate lawyer. Generally, our experience of other firms is that you need two separate lawyers to deliver the capabilities that Ainsley brings to the table. In addition, the team has been strengthened in recent years with excellent new hires in the team both at junior, mid level and senior level to support and complement Ainsley.’

‘Ainsley Heffernan brings unique skills to any transaction. In addition to the skills, his passion for the sector, his personal engagement with clients and his sincerity are second to none. Alongside Ainsley, Maire Cunningham has equally stood out around our more general corporate legal matters where, like Ainsley, Maire brings a passion and skill to her trade.’
