    Can anyone recommend a solicitor to review a redundancy package, west Dublin or Dublin 1 please?

    What do you need reviewed ?

    Presumably you are being paid at least the statutory minimum redundancy and maybe something extra.
    The calculation of the statutory min is available on various websites if you need to check it, or you can post details here. if you are not being paid the correct statutory there is a route to follow that does not require a solicitor.

    The extra if any, has generally no legal basis ( subject maybe to precedence with your company, of which a solicitor will have no knowledge).

    I want the redundancy agreement reviewed, company will cover the cost of the legal advice. I'm not worried about the calculations.

    If they are covering the cost then go for a decent mid size firm such as LK Shields that have dedicated employmemt law departments. Avoid a general law firm with no specialism.

    In a midsized company you'll be a minnow and in some cases treated as such.

    I'll recommend Lee Solicitors in Nutgrove Office Park who are very diligent and quite strong in employment areas - and I'm speaking as an employer who has used his services in that area.
