Buying or selling your house or apartment can be very stressful and is one of the most significant events in a person’s life.For some of us it represents the biggest financial decision we will ever make.
Clarke Jeffers commercial property solicitors pride themselves on a contemporary and plain spoken approach combined with all the expertise and professionalism you would expect from one of the region’s leading firms.
A Compulsory purchase Order is typically a forced sale of lands or property to a State agency, for example, road building, Erection of ESB Lines or gas pipe lines and now sales under the new NAMA legislation.
Disputes relating to contract matters can be wide and varied. They may involve the simple recovery of a debt or alternatively might involve complex litigation and argument seeking the recovery of money or a range of remedies including something known as specific performance.
Clarke Jeffers specialises in all aspects of Planning Law. We have worked independently and with architects and engineers for both the taking of and defence of appeals both at local level and An Bord Pleanala level.
Injuries arising from a road traffic incident or an accident at work can be traumatic and if another party is at fault then a claim for personal injuries might arise.
Medical and Professional Negligence cases might be seen as a sub-branch of personal injury cases in which special rules apply.
For example in medical negligence actions no application is made to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board and as a consequence proceedings are issued directly.
Litigation generally encompasses all disputes of a non criminal nature between parties.
At Clarke Jeffers we put our client first and are mindful to advise, not only in the context of legal answers, but also practical solutions.
Whether you are a big business, a private company or a sole trader, disputes in the commercial world are inevitable. Dealing with those disputes in a cost effective manner is crucial to the ongoing survival of any business.
“Family Law” is the name given to the area of law which governs disputes between married and cohabiting couples. Disputes of this nature can be both traumatic and devastating for any of the parties involved. The role of a lawyer is to safely guide a client through the maze of legal difficulties which might lie ahead.
Wills and Estates
We consider your will to be one of the most important and vital documents which you will ever sign.
Making the best provision for your family or your business now and in the future requires careful financial planning.
Clarke Jeffers have been advising the agricultural community for over 75 years. In that time we have come to understand that farming is, amongst other attributes, a business.
At Clarke Jeffers we realise that agricultural disputes are different from other types of cases. For one thing, farms may have been in a family for generations so there is a lot more than just land value at stake.
Clarke Jeffers have over the last ten years developed a leading practice in the area of Internet Law. This new and ever evolving area of Law presents fresh challenges to both individuals and business on a daily basis.
A trademark is a symbol or a word(s) which is established by use over time and which can be duly registered. It represents a company or product. In order to have a trademark registered it must comply with all relevant law and procedures.
E commerce is the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet. This area of Internet usage has greatly increased in the last couple of years and now provides for a substantial share in today’s retail markets.
Every country has its own gambling laws. Ireland is no exception. In the last number of years, however, online gambling has exploded in popularity. Various international gambling sites operate in Ireland via the internet.
Clarke Jeffers specialise in corporate insolvency and rescue. In the last 7 years we have advised Insolvency Practitioners, banks, statutory bodies and many types of business including public companies, private companies and special investment vehicles.
Company Law and Business Law
Clarke Jeffers are one of the country’s leading company and business law firms. We have over 40 years experience in advising sole traders, private companies and public companies across a range of sectors.
A licence in law allows something to be done which would otherwise be illegal. This most commonly affects the sale of alcohol where effectively permission is required.

multiple occasions and across a variety of disciplines such as 3 day eventing, dressage and polo.
