About John Hogan

John knows the property market. It would be difficult to find a more practical or commercial lawyer anywhere. He has a penchant for deal-making and finding solutions for clients that they didn’t know were possible.

There’s a steely determination that shows from time to time but John is widely recognised as one of the nicest and most optimistic guys you will meet. He conducts his practice with a sense of humour and he loves “talking business”.

John loves lots of sports and in his spare time can be found in the RDS and further afield following Leinster Rugby. He is determined to retire on his children’s talent and he has recently taken up coaching hurling. He’s the first to admit that he had very limited experience with the sliotar in his youth.

When he’s not being sporty he’s looking out for others generally. Rumoured to have spent a year in Afghanistan building bridges and holding the Taliban at bay, he has a keen interest in a number of charities.
