Client Testimonial:

“Kevin O’Higgins Solicitors have provided valued advice to Fine Gael, in both opposition and Government, over the last 25 years.  Acting for a political party, and all its diverse and component parts, can be demanding both in terms of delivery and immediacy. It frequently requires a deep appreciation of Public Affairs, Politics, current legislation and the interplay between Government and the political system.  Kevin O’Higgins  has always understood the ebb and flow of politics and the events which arise, and require a legal reaction and appropriate advice. This has always been provided in exemplary manner.”
