Helping People in Need

Since 2011 Leman Solicitors has raised more than €175,000 for charities each of which does very important work in our local and wider communities. Our Christmas Caroling and Leman Challenge make up our annual fundraising events and all our lawyers participate enthusiastically each year.

This year, our LeMeath challenge involved a 100K race including a swim, cycle, paddleboard and run across County Meath for Pieta House, Irish Autism Action and Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Over the years we’ve assisted Paralympics Ireland, Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland, The Samaritans, The Simon Community, Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Focus Ireland.

Community

Being involved in our local business and social community is truly important for us. We have always supported local business and are delighted to see their continuing success.

This year we launched our “Smart Start” combined mentoring and internship program to help students from a local disadvantaged area get valuable work experience with us. The Smart Start program includes a third level bursary and career guidance.

We also launched our first “CoderDojo Club” for kids to learn computer coding. We’re surprised we didn’t think of it before.

Environment

We were Ireland’s first paperless office and our continuing drive for efficiency and the avoidance of waste in our business management has been recognised with ISO9001 certification.

We have introduced various initiatives to help “reduce, reuse and recycle” so that waste is minimised and our carbon footprint reduced. We have one car space for 35 people. The one car (not a Prius) is shared by all and used only when absolutely necessary. Everyone else cycles, walks or uses public transport to get to and from work.

Marketplace

We deliver regular free seminars to SME leaders in our community. In 2015 we showed tech entrepreneurs how to maximize the value of their business; we explained to developers and other corporate borrowers how to deal with loan negotiations with loan acquirers; and we presented a vision of the future of law and legal technology to more than 70 senior inhouse counsel from local and international enterprises.

Workplace

We provide a very different practical working experience. While we adhere to traditional values and ethics, our work practices are highly innovative. We work with the most advanced legal technology which is available to everyone not just the senior members of staff.

Our use of advanced technology allows us to provide truly flexible and unique working solutions. We were the first law firm in Ireland to enable people work full-time from home at hours that suit them.
