About Ronan McGoldrick

Ronan brought to Leman Solicitors experience of some of Ireland’s largest and most complicated financial services disputes. Precise and uncompromising in his high standards he understands what is required to get the best result for his clients. Lenders and borrowers have sought his advice on issues spanning the broad spectrum of contentious financial services disputes. He is genuinely passionate about the area and takes great satisfaction from having helped set a few important precedents along the way. But be careful because he’ll tell you all about them if you don’t stop him.

When it comes to disputes he likes big ones, preferring to talk in billions rather than millions. He’s most likely to be overheard at the water cooler saying things like “where the lender has breached the terms of the principal loan then the associated personal guarantee is vulnerable”.

When he is not working he can usually be found chasing the peloton. His greatest fear is that when he passes on his wife will sell his bikes for what he told her they cost. It’s a mid-life crisis thing.
