Industrial accidents

Industrial accidents

Every employer has a duty of care towards their employees in providing and maintaining a safe working environment and conditions in which every employee can safely execute the obligations of the terms of their employment. This duty on employers is not restricted to industrial factories where physical risk of harm may be increased, but to shopfloors, offices and any place of employment and includes the duty of prevention of bullying or harassment of any employee within the workforce. A workplace accident can have devastating consequences not alone on your physical ability to work and enjoy life, but on your family finances if you find yourself unable to continue to work as a result of an accident.

If you believe you have suffered an injury in your place of work or resulting from your working conditions, or if you are an Employer who may be facing a claim for personal injury from or on behalf of an employee, John J. Quinn and Co. have an experienced team who can give you sound advice in the first instance as to whether you, or your employee in the case of an Employer, has a stateable claim and thereafter, the steps you need to take from start to conclusion, to protect your interests in all cases. We can also advise employers on the provisions and obligations of Health and Safety legislation and your duties thereunder as an Employer, and thereby hopefully proactively, preventing as far as possible, an accident before it happens and the disruption to the workforce on the part of both employer and employee consequent upon same.

Crime

Crime

John J Quinn & Co Solicitors have over 30 years of experience in representing our clients at what can be a very difficult time in their lives. Our criminal lawyers are skilled advocates, experienced in providing expert advice from the outset and can provide you with clear and reliable advice on your rights and options, from arrest and attendance at a Garda Station, through to defending any prosecution for any criminal offence that may follow if you are charged or summonsed to appear in Court. Our criminal lawyers will be on hand to guide, advise and represent you from start to finish in the criminal courts, from the District Court to Special Criminal Court and through any appeal that may follow.

We can provide representation throughout the Midlands, Dublin and across the country by arrangement. Our experienced criminal lawyers deal on a daily basis with all aspects of criminal defence from road traffic offences, public order offences, assault cases, criminal damage, drug related offences, animal welfare offences, social welfare fraud related matters and everything up to the most serious offences of murder and sexual offences.

Family Law

Family Law

The breakdown of any marriage or relationship is most likely to be one of the most painful and emotional experiences a person can go through, and made all the more so where there are children involved. At John J Quinn & Co we are committed to understanding firstly your individual situation with empathy, sensitivity and discretion and working with you towards identifying and securing the solution that works best for you and your family unit as a whole, within a legal system that quite properly identifies the needs of young children as the paramount concern above all others in the course of relationship breakdown between adults. We can take you through the options available to you from seeking a mediated settlement in the first instance, keeping you in control and legal fees and costs to a minimum, or a settlement negotiated through solicitors if mediation is not an option in your circumstances, or fails to achieve resolution despite your best efforts. If no agreement can be reached and the only option is litigation, our experienced team of professionals can guide you through this process and work towards the result that best preserves, as far as practicable, your rights including property and maintenance rights and those of any dependent children of the marriage whose futures have yet to be secured through maintaining their basic needs and education. We have wide experience at District, Circuit and High Court, and are on the Legal Aid Private Practitioner Panel for those clients who qualify for this means-tested assistance with legal fees, determined by The Legal Aid Board.

In cases where your difficulties may be caused by fear or friction within your family home caused by a Partner, or indeed adult children, or from a former Partner such that you may require to seek the protections afforded by The Domestic Violence Acts, we can fully advise and assist you in making those applications, often regrettably needed on an emergency basis, before the District Court in order to protect the welfare of you, and any children within your household.

As an investor in property, you as a Landlord need to protect your investment and the interests of any Lender with a charge secured over it, by securing your rights and duties under a lease, and the timely receipt of rental payments in particular if servicing a charge over the property. You may need to take steps to protect your interests and property in the event of breaches of the terms of any letting agreement by the Tenant. As a Tenant, you need to be aware of the rights and duties of both your Landlord and yourself regarding the property and the possible remedies available to you to protect your interest in the property if things don’t go to plan as can happen. In the case of a residential tenancy, both Landlords and Tenants need sound and considered advice around the legislative provisions and duties introduced for both by the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 which introduced to Ireland extensive and wide ranging protections and regulations regarding the letting and occupancy of residential leases which both Landlords and Tenants must be aware to ensure compliance with all aspects thereof.We here at John J Quinn & Co have a wide range of experience and skill in this area and can advise in all areas including the following :

Licensing

Pub Licensing

At John J Quinn & Co we have considerable experience in guiding our clients through every aspect of the complex maze which constitutes licensing code in Ireland.

It is most important that any business or organisation involved in any aspect of the sale and supply of alcohol be fully conversant with the legal requirements that affect the licensing of their trade and business and the steps that must be taken by them to ensure compliance with the licensing laws, including procurement of tax clearance.

We act for both purchasers and vendors of hotels and licensed premises and off-licences and offer a wraparound service jointly with our conveyancing and licensing departments in all aspects of both purchases and sales to include procurement of the applicable liquor licence and can also advise regarding applications for extensions to existing licenced premises, application for a new licence or special exemption licences and/or dance licences for those one-off events or occasions that are arranged from time to time.
