Ma­jor so­lic­i­tors’ con­fer­ence in Tralee

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By SI­MON BROUDER

OVER 120 le­gal ea­gles from across Kerry gath­ered at the Bal­ly­garry House Ho­tel in Tralee last Thurs­day for a ma­jor le­gal con­fer­ence which was or­gan­ised to up­date lo­cal so­lic­i­tors on the lat­est changes, chal­lenges and trends in Ir­ish and EU law.

The con­fer­ence, Es­sen­tial So­lic­i­tors’ Up­date Kerry 2017, fea­tured ex­pert speak­ers on a range of top­ics, in­clud­ing cy­ber-crime, con­veyanc­ing, and home re­pos­ses­sion cases.

“Ev­ery as­pect of the law – from buy­ing and sell­ing homes to data pro­tec­tion – is be­com­ing more com­plex and we are fo­cussed on en­sur­ing that lo­cal so­lic­i­tors have the most com­plete and up-to-date knowl­edge on th­ese im­por­tant top­ics for their clients,” said Pres­i­dent of the Kerry Law So­ci­ety Tralee based so­lic­i­tor Pat Mann.

“The le­gal world, de­spite its rep­u­ta­tion, is evolv­ing at quite a rapid rate - just con­sider the emerg­ing ar­eas of law like data pro­tec­tion, cy­ber-crime and re­new­able en­ergy – is­sues that were rarely dis­cussed even up to a few years ago. Th­ese are not dis­tant, far off is­sues, th­ese are now is­sues that af­fect the ev­ery­day lives of many Kerry busi­nesses and res­i­dents,” Mr Mann said.

“As busi­ness own­ers and mem­bers of the Kerry busi­ness com­mu­nity, the con­fer­ence is also an ex­cel­lent fo­rum for so­lic­i­tors to come to­gether to seek and share ad­vice on be­half of and for the ben­e­fit of their clients and the lo­cal com­mu­nity,” he said.
