“Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan has worked with us on a number of different matters, particularly commercial contracts and property matters. They tend to have specialists in each area which means we get the benefit of a very high level of expertise. We find them very responsive to our requirements, they quickly understand what has to be done and deliver the outcomes we need without delay. We value their assistance highly, and I would not hesitate to give them my recommendation.”
