About Larry Fenelon

Leman Solicitors’ extraordinary growth is due in no small way to Larry’s peerless organisational skills and indefatigable energy. There’s nothing he enjoys more than a good meeting except a good meeting held over a large steak.

But Larry’s talents are much more extensive than exemplary (and ISO approved) management techniques. His passion is for sport and, as they say, it’s a contented man indeed that can make his hobby his life’s work. Larry has specialised in Sports Law for more than a decade. His clients include many of the largest and most respected sports organisations in the country. He is a zealous advocate for clients and as a qualified mediator and arbitrator he has years of experience sitting on both sides of the bench.

When he’s not working on sports law, he extolls genuine amateurism in running, cycling and squash. As a spectator he is a supporter of Dublin Football and all things rugby. As a television viewer, there are few sports that he does not watch. In between all of that he fits in time for his young and growing family.
