Office Closure Due to Covid-19 Virus

It will come as no surprise to you that due to the unprecedented circumstances in which we find ourselves, we have taken the decision to close our offices for the time being.

We do not take this decision lightly, but have done so with the health and safety of all of our staff in mind.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of our business, we cannot work remotely from home, so until further notice, please do not send in paperwork for our attention either electronically or by hard copy.

Please keep an eye out for further information and updates here on our website and on the Courts Service website.

At present, the Courts Service have not decided to close for business, but this situation may change as time goes on.

We hope that you can bear with us for the moment, and in the meantime, please stay safe and well yourselves.

COVID-19 – Coronavirus Update Thursday 12th March

Please note that in light of the recent announcement by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today, Pearts Solicitors and Town Agents intend operating as normal as possible until we are advised otherwise by the Courts Service of Ireland or another official body.

There may be unavoidable delays due to staff shortages, which could inevitably arise, either within the Courts Service or our own office. We will endeavour to do our best to process all work, as always.

Please keep an eye out for any updates which will be posted here, once we receive them. You may also find more information on courts.ie and their social media channels.

The Great Office Bake-Off and Coffee Morning in Aid of Hospice

The amazing aroma of freshly baked goods filled the office kitchen last Friday as aprons, whisks and sieves were dusted off for the Bewley's Coffee Morning fundraiser in aid of Hospice. From Malteser cakes, to baked cheesecakes to brownie's galore, it was a fine feast for all the staff.

The baking talents of the team were outstanding and while serious efforts were made to try and finish off all the delights on the day, it was simply not possible. However, it meant that we were able to drop the remaining treats over to the Merchants Quay homeless shelter, who were thrilled to be able to offer the tasty bites with the tea in the Night Cafe that evening.
