Employment Law Solicitors at Crimmins Howard are happy to advise employers and employees regarding employment law. We have extensive experience in helping clients with employment law, be it when hiring employees, reviewing contracts of employment and HR policy or simply ensuring that a disciplinary process is dealt with properly and fairly.

As employment law solicitors, our experience has shown that employers and employees are not always aware of their rights and responsibilities under employment law. If you are an employer, you must have regard to the statutory rights of employees and your responsibilities as an employer. If you are an employee, it is essential that you bring to the attention of your employer your rights and entitlements so as to ensure that you are treated fairly at all times. Our firm advises both employers and employees and is happy to assist them with adhering to their employment law obligations. We provide specialist services to ensure that your rights as an employee remain protected so that you receive what you are entitled to in a fair, efficient and cost effective manner. We are happy to advise employees in all situations be it before, during or after their employment with a particular organisation.

Contact us today and we will be happy to advise you on how to proceed with your case. To contact us, call us on 061 361088, email us at info@crimminshoward.ie. We are happy to meet you in the office for an initial consultation to discuss your case and thereafter to provide you with the benefit of advice so that you can decide how best to proceed.

As family law solicitors, we at Crimmins Howard understand that when a relationship breaks down it can be a time of great upset and distress for everyone involved. We provide family law services in an empathic manner, providing sensitive yet impartial advice to our clients. We adopt a positive approach in such matters, and try to advise on alternative courses of action to litigation. However, if litigation is necessary we are highly experienced in court litigation. With the large number of foreign nationals living and marrying in Ireland a marriage breakdown can have implications beyond the territory of Ireland which require careful consideration to ensure a fair and lasting agreement is achieved in an effort to avoid future difficulties regarding access to children, custody and financial maintenance.

Relationship breakdown can have significant legal, financial and taxation implications. Our family law solicitors are adept at complex negotiations in such situations. We are available to provide advice and assistance to clients dealing with such difficult matters which include:

Divorce/separation
Maintenance
Custody, guardianship and access
Adoption
Co-habiting Agreements
Mediation
Civil Partnership and Cohabitation agreements
Domestic violence
Recognition of foreign divorces and foreign marriage

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements in respect of our family law services. Please call us on 061 361088 or e mail our office info@crimminshoward.ie to see how we can help you with any family law matters.

When considering making a Will or changing an existing Will, we will be happy to advise and assist you where necessary. Please contact us if you have any queries or concerns regarding your will, probate or estate, and we will be happy to help you.

In particular, you should consider the following:

If you have been separated or divorced and have not reviewed your Will it is important to bear in mind that a Will made prior to separation or divorce may still be valid. You may have left property to a spouse from whom you are now estranged. It is important to regularly review your will and how the needs of those who you wish to benefit may have changed.

Do you own property abroad?
If you do, have you made a Will in that country and reviewed your Irish Will in the context of the foreign property? Has careful consideration been given so as to ensure that a foreign Will doesn’t revoke your Irish Will and that your Irish Will doesn’t revoke your foreign Will?

Have you recently married?
If you have, and if you haven’t made a Will since, any Will that you made before you got married is now likely to be invalid.

Where are your Executors?
If you made a Will some years ago, and your Executor has since left the country, do you need to appoint a new Executor who is an Irish resident?

Have you made a specific bequest of shares in a Company which has since been taken over, amalgamated or has merged to form a new entity? If so, a bequest of the shares by reference to the original company name, may no longer be legally effective and you may have to modify your Will to specify the new Company/Corporation to ensure the gift does not fail.

Are you a farmer? If so, are you in receipt of EU Single Farm Payments?
Such payments are not automatically attached to the land, for testamentary purposes, i.e., if you want the single farm payment to go with the farm, you need to specify that in your Will.

Have you ever held a United States Green Card?
You may be liable for United States Federal and State taxes both now and on death. The United States Taxation Authorities are quite active in pursuing outstanding taxes from persons whom they consider to be within the United States tax net, even though they may have been living abroad (e.g., in the Republic of Ireland) for many years.

Do you realise that if you have property abroad the tax rules there will be different to the tax rules here. For example, there is no gift or inheritance tax between spouses in this country. This may not be the case in other jurisdictions. Each country has its own rules, and where property is involved, the rules of the country where the property is situated are those which are likely to take precedence. Careful consideration needs to be given to such situations to legitimately keep your exposure to a potential tax liability to a minimum.

Contact us today and we will be happy to advise you on these matters. Please call our office on 061 361088 or email us at info@crimminshoward.ie and we will be happy to call you back. We are happy to meet you for an initial consultation to discuss your requirements and thereafter to provide you with the benefit of advice so that you can decide how best to deal with your estate planning and wills.
