Legal advice delivered in clear and simple language

Herbots Solicitors, specialise in the following areas of law:


In a fast-moving and increasingly international business world there are, inevitably, times when agreements and contracts break down and legal action must be taken to protect assets or compensate loss. Dispute resolution is exactly that – the process by which a resolution is achieved. This can be done by Litigation, – i.e. in Court – or by an alternative dispute resolution mechanism.  Arbitration is such a mechanism, and is a central pillar of our practice. Prof. Dr. em. Jacques H. Herbots is an accredited international arbitrator and he leads the Herbots arbitration team.

We have represented clients in commercial arbitrations in both international and domestic disputes, under various institutional rules, including ICC, LCIA, ECA and UNCITRAL. As such, we are intimately familiar with the nuances of the various arbitration rules and are perfectly positioned to advise our clients on whether arbitration is the appropriate forum to reach the best resolution for their particular dispute.

We help clients to identify and achieve the best possible outcomes. Our focus is always to help our clients understand the options and to help them to decide on the option that most supports their business interests cost-effectively. Our partner-led, practical approach ensures that clients receive a swift, high-quality response that focuses on achieving the best commercial resolution.

Construction Law

It's about building trust

Yes it’s a play on words but it’s true. Herbots will work with you to build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect. As trust can only develop when there is open communication, we will agree an integrated contact strategy with you.

Building and construction is the process of creating structures and buildings, which in turn become property. This sector is at the core of our business - from small property renovations, such as adding a room, or renovation of a bathroom, to the multi-million Euro development of motorways, housing estates, shopping centres or office blocks.

Our contracts ensure that design, construction, operation and maintenance issues are considered as a whole to reduce potential claims. Roles and risk allocation are best set out clearly from the beginning.

We know the construction industry inside-out. You can rely on Herbots for practical advice and options that come from our vast experience and understanding of the construction industry.

We have successfully litigated virtually every construction project related issue, including those involving contract interpretation; delay and disruption disputes claims; disputes relating to scope of work changes; differing site conditions; environmental issues; subrogation claims; complex insurance coverage issues; easements and condemnation matters; payment claims; construction defects; design deficiencies; and indoor air quality issues.

As construction law is often about document management in a litigious environment, we have invested heavily in a super modern document management system and have developed substantial experience in eDiscovery, both of which save our clients costs and time.

We bring efficiency, predictability, and consistency to the often costly task of eDiscovery. With an array of technological tools and vast experience, we can help streamline all phases of eDiscovery, including data mapping, identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analytics, and production. We have extensive experience with predictive coding and other forms of advanced analytics that can be leveraged in document-intensive matters. We have a dedicated team of technical specialists who combine practical experience with technical know-how to achieve optimal results. We have experience in negotiating eDiscovery protocols, conducting custodial interviews, taking/defending eDiscovery depositions, prosecuting/defending eDiscovery motions, working with forensic experts and managing outside vendors.

Procurement Law

For procurement we doubt there’s any other law firm in Ireland that can help you as much as we can. And that’s not a claim we make lightly.

We’ve helped to develop public procurement strategies that achieve goals with the perfect balance of risk, control and funding.

National and EU procurement rules might seem like barriers but, actually, they’re not: They define the commercial opportunities and we’ll help you to interpret them.
