About the firm …….

The firm was established by James who qualified as a Chartered Accountant in the early eighties. Having gained extensive experience of the hotel, leisure and hospitality sectors of Ireland of that period there followed an initial two year posting with a “big four” international accounting firm to Africa which was followed by  further postings to  Asia and the Middle East. This decade long sojourn in the Orient facilitated extensive experience of a broad spectrum of the firm’s international client base and their respective business models and philosophies.
James returned to Ireland in the mid nineties  and established the firm which today has grown in to a vibrant and   progressive firm of professionals .  Based  in  Blackrock,  Dublin  it services an extensive client base spanning the   entire country and beyond.
As well as providing comprehensive Audit, Tax and Company Secretarial Services, the firm  imparts specialist expertise in the areas of company reorganizations,  management buy-outs  and  buy-ins,  mediation and dispute resolution, re-engineering of bank facilities and allied business challenges. And, in recognising the  cross pollenisation of the accounting  and tax  facets of commercial transactions  with their  legal  underpinnings  the firm embraces an In-house Full Service Offering to its many and varied clients.  After further academic undertakings and intensive practical experience at the coal face of the legal profession  James  was called to the Bar as a Barrister in more  recent years. He was appointed a Notary Public for life by Chief Justice  , The Honorable  Susan Denham in 2015.   He is also a  member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, London.
