About Us

JRAP O’Meara Solicitors, comprising of 22 solicitors and 20 support staff, is a commercial legal firm created by the merger of two well established Cork firms – Barry M O’Meara & Son and James Riordan and Partners. We had identified that there was a synergy between our two firms and that we held a shared culture, values and objectives and so in 2018 we came together to create JRAP O’Meara, a new firm with an enhanced commercial offering to our clients.

JRAP O’Meara has quickly established itself as having a reputation of openness, warmth and client attention, with an emphasis on unrivalled knowledge and professionalism. We have a modern and efficient approach to the practice of law. We pride ourselves on acting as General Counsel to our clients, providing them with clear, practical, committed, honest, directional advice – not just a range of options.

Our expertise includes all the key disciplines of public, private and corporate law and is continually developing. The firm is divided into specialised Departments ensuring solicitors use their wealth of knowledge and experience in specific areas to maximise client outcomes. We are recognised as a firm with extensive experience in commercial law and litigation matters, particularly in the areas of employment law, commercial agreements, dispute resolution, banking, insolvency and property. We are confident that we will be able to assist you with any advice you may require.

We also believe in the importance of being friendly and approachable when delivering advice. We recognise that clients need to be comfortable in their contact with their solicitor and consistently strive to build a relationship of trust and confidence with our clients. We are committed to making ourselves available for personal consultation, advice and assistance whenever required.

Our systems, standards and efficiency have been awarded the Gold Standard Q6000 Legal Quality Standard from the Institute of Legal Research & Standards. The Q6000 is an advanced practice, risk and quality management standard awarded to solicitors’ firms which have demonstrated exceptional levels of client, practice and risk management. The Q6000 Standard provides assurance to clients that their firm not just observes but exceeds best practice standards. Firms with this accreditation have been independently audited and rank among the highest quality law firms in Ireland.
