‘I find the Leman team to be very personable and accessible, which is something that separates them from other legal firms we have been involved with. There is a can-do attitude ingrained in everyone at Leman we have been in contact with. It is obvious that this positive attitude flows from the partners through the whole firm.’

‘Leman Solicitors have always provided us with an efficient, concise and speedy service. Their fixed fee approach and commitment to providing a prompt response to our issues is a welcome difference to other firms. The access to partner level at all times is drastically different to how other firms operate.’

‘As founding partner, John Hogan is always accessible and has an infectious enthusiasm.’

‘My contact in Leman Solicitors is Andrew Nagle. I have worked with Andrew for many years and his advices over that time have been invaluable to our company. He has navigated us through some difficult transactions and always provided practical and real-world advice. He understands our business and the issues that matter to us.’

‘Andrew Nagle and John Hogan  are practical and effective and they don’t waste time on items if it is not required.’

‘We have been very impressed by the detailed knowledge of our business and wider property sector possessed by the staff at Leman. We have always dealt with senior solicitors and work has been turned around in a timely fashion, we have never had to chase up to have work completed. The stand out solicitors we have dealt with in Leman are John Hogan, Aoife O’Dea and Gavin Fitzgerald. John has always taken the lead and remained involved in projects, while they were in the very capable hands of Gavin, Aoife or another member of staff. John is a particularly impressive character and the reason we decided to place our business with Leman, a decision we are extremely happy about.’
