Some pubs have been unnecessarily draconian… 2 November 2020
Some pubs have been unnecessarily draconian in imposing Covid one-way systems. The journalist James Melville spotted one sign on a pub door that read: “Customers caught exiting the building by this door will be asked to leave”.
Has covid-19 forced you to…. 11 October 2020
Returning to some form of normality 6 October 2020
We have endeavored from the onset of the pandemic to minimise the inconvenience to our clients and to continue to deliver a full range of services. We have our full complement of staff back at work – albeit a cohort working from home to reduce density in the office. The office itself has been adapted to minimise any risk to personnel or the public. The reception has sanitizing facilities and our receptionists are segregated by a perspex screen. We have a designated interview room with similar perspex protection and as this reduces the number of interviews, we will accommodate clients during lunch hour or outside normal office hours. We would ask our clientele to observe the social distancing rules when entering and leaving our premises.
We have completed our migration into the Cloud – one of the biggest advances in our history. It expedites our working practices and facilities home working. We all enjoy brand new state of the art computers, printers and copiers for the conveyance of our staff and the benefit of our clients.
Are Covid precautions going too far? 25 September 2020
Are Covid precautions going too far? The interview rooms at Oxford magistrates’ court bear a sign advising that only one person is allowed in at a time. A solicitor reader wonders if it would be better for him or his client to have the room when they need to confer.

Death – The penultimate commercial transaction finalised by Probate: Bernard Rosenberg 30 September 2019
This is an interesting article from The Times articulating the difficulties now faced by testators in ensuring that their express wishes are enacted after their death. It makes it all the more important that professional guidance and assistance is engaged in the execution of a will or testamentary disposition.

Congratulations Michael 29 May 2019
Congratulations to our Michael Donaghy and his beautiful bride, Lycrecia, on their nuptials. The ceremony took place in St Malachy’s Church, Ballymacilroy, followed by a lively reception in Harvey’s Point where the cuisine, craic and conviviality were mighty. Thank you both for your kind invitation and wishing you all future health and happiness together – ( counting the days until your return though Michael! LOL).

Running Miles is like running cases
You only smile when they are over!
Our logo caught the eye of the Law Society President, Suzanne Rice, when we participated in the Marie Curie 5K around the Titanic Quarter of Belfast. Suzanne kindly posed for a photo with our participants, Paul Haughey, Padraig Conway and Michael Donaghy (aka Kevin Haughey). Michael was supposed to be ‘wrapped up in cotton wool’ before his forthcoming nuptials but somehow contrived to play against Eglish on Sunday! Padraig posted an excellent time and was only beaten on the line into fourth. More significantly, our Adam Wood ran the marathon section around the Phoenix Park for the victorious Northern Ireland Solicitors team in the inaugural ‘Iron Man’ Triathalon! Congratulations to Adam and his victorious colleagues.
Overall a very active weekend for C&H!1 2 3 … 6 Next »
