1. How long has Tallans Solicitors been in business?
Tallans are proud to have served the people of Drogheda and the surrounding areas for over 130 years. Interestingly, Tallans have been a member of the Drogheda Chamber since the chamber was first founded.
2. What do you think has been your biggest achievement with the business?
We have continuously invested in the business to ensure that it will be around to serve the people of Drogheda and Ashbourne for generations to come. We have hired new partner Orla Shevlin from Top 5 law firm, William Fry which reflects our commitment by bringing through new partnership talent and ensuring an exceptional service experience for all of our clients.
3. How has your business changed over the years?
It’s changed immensely in one way but hasn’t changed a bit in another. We’ve introduced technology to support the growth of our business and how we communicate with clients and for our clients. Just take this year, we’ve been doing consultations over Zoom, Skype and Whatsapp. It’s important to meet clients where they need to be met.
Another change has been the departmentalisation and specialisation of our practice. We have specialists in personal injury, medical negligence, family law, conveyancing, wills and probate and our latest department, the commercial department.
When I say it hasn’t changed a bit, I mean that our business has always been about our clients – the people of Drogheda and Ashbourne. We care about our clients, there have been many, many times when we’ve sat with clients in their homes during times of their need. That’s what our clients need at times and we are always there for them. The law is to there to support individuals, families and businesses, we simply use our expertise to help.
4. Tell us one thing that people might not know about your Company
We have just opened up a new Commercial Department. It’s an exciting time for the business at the moment. This is due to the growth of the commercial side of the business, driven by local business need and the expertise and experience of our newest partner, Orla Shevlin who brings her Top5 law firm experience to the North East.
There are so many businesses in the North East that need commercial assistance particularly in commercial litigation and so now they don’t have to travel to get the expertise they need.
5. What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
It’s all about the client relationship – clients need to trust that you have their best interests at heart and that you are working tirelessly to help them. That is the key to success!
