Larkin Solicitors provides a full and comprehensive legal service with offices in Gray Office Park and our principal office in Gort, South Galway.

We have three partners in the practice, Deirdre Larkin, Deirdre Brophy & Ann Gillane with over 30 years experience between us. Deirdre Larkin heads up our Conveyancing & Probate practice. Deirdre Brophy & Ann Gillane both specialize and have particular expertise in Family Law with Ann concentrating mainly on the South Galway, Clare and Limerick region although she does also attend Court in Galway City as required ! Deirdre Brophy practices mainly in Galway City and Mayo areas. All three solicitors also deal with personal injury litigation at all Court levels.

In late 2017, we took an office in Gray Office Park which has really benefitted our practice as well as our clients. As two of our solicitors live in Galway City it really optimizes our time for both our client and home commitments. We expect 2019 will continue to challenge us and we are determined to build on our success to date. We are currently designing our new website and that is an exciting development for the practice.

We look forward to continue serving our clients, old and new at Gray Office Park. No issue is too big or small for us to handle. We are happy to advise on all areas of law as required and within our legal expertise.

JOS Solicitors

Each week we like to reach out to those who are a part of the Gray Office Park Community to hear more about their business! This week we had a chat with Jason O’Sullivan. Jason has been a part of the Gray Office Park community for the past few years now and we thought it was the right time to share more about the company.


Who are J.O.S Solicitors?

J.O.S Solicitors is a contemporary law firm with offices in both Galway and Dublin offering tailored legal and consultancy services to businesses and individuals in the area of Employment Law, Company Law, Defamation, Medical Negligence and Personal Injury.

Quickfire questions!

What is the most rewarding part about the work you do?

“Growing up, I was always fascinated by the judicial system depicted through TV and film and always believed it was an important profession that could make a positive contribution on both an individual and societal level. Fundamentally, law and the practice thereof, is about people, so achieving success can be largely dependent on the combination of requisite legal knowledge and complimentary people skills. It is always very rewarding to achieve the optimum result for clients and particularly in cases where you feel justice has prevailed”.

What was a highlight of 2018 for you?

I was delighted that both the firm and I received five award nominations at last year’s Law Awards, in categories alongside long established law firms. I was extremely proud and honoured to have won “Connacht/Ulster Sole Practitioner/Sole Principal of the Year” and to receive such valued recognition from my industry peers and colleagues”.

What do you love most about Galway?

“Galway is a great city to live and do business in. When setting up the firm in 2015, I was very conscious of having the main office in Galway and returned from Dublin to do so. Galway has the perfect balance to enhance ones family life and business endeavours. There is also a very positive and innovative atmosphere around the Galway business community”.

What is your goal for 2019? Personal or business related!

“The firm’s success has been beyond my expectations to date and I am thoroughly enjoying the chance to steer the firm in the innovative direction I envisaged at its inception. I look forward to continuing to grow the firm, team and brand over the next year in order to best serve the expanding client base both locally and nationally

Quickfire Questions with Ronan

Ronan Bray – Pensions and Finance


What is a highlight for you in being a part of the Gray Office Park Community?

Working from our base at Gray Office Park provides us with a great location that clients can access easily.  The diversity in the businesses here in Gray Office Park always makes for interesting conversation around the lunch breaks and provides plenty of “water cooler talk”.

What is the most rewarding part about the work you do?

Getting people to start thinking about their finances and putting long term financial plans is key to what we do at Pensions And Finance.  There is a huge satisfaction in seeing people get to grips with their finances and taking control of their money.

Another rewarding part of the business is the whole retirement process where clients finally see the value and benefit of the saving throughout their working life and how this now provides them with financial security, a tax free lump sum and income for the rest of their life.

What was a highlight of 2018 for you? 

2018 was a good year for the business and with the continued recovery in the economy more and more people are looking at their finances and planning for a secure future, this is great news for Pensions And Finance.  2018 was also interesting from the point of view that we took on our first client born in the ‘90s.  A young guy, born in 1990, started on the financial planning journey with an overall review of his position and clarification of future goals.

What are your goals for 2019? Personal or business related!

For 2019 we are continuing to provide a personal service to those who are interested in managing their finances and look forward to growing the business with the addition of new clients.  On a personal level I would hope to try learn to play the piano, I did it as a child but would need to start again!

What do you love most about Galway?

Having worked away for a good number of years I was very glad to return to Galway in 1998.  Galway is a great city to do business in, people are very open and one of the really lovely things is the diversity of people who come to use our services.
