Seán Ormonde and Co. Solicitors is small but fast growing firm based in Waterford city. The firm specialises in employment law but they also do other types of litigation and naturally they have recently begun to get a lot busier in private client work particularly in the area of probate and wills.
What has contributed to their growth is a focus on client service and contact. They believe that it is crucial that a client’s work is done as efficiently as possible while always keeping the client informed of progress, keeping them “in the loop” as it were. This approach has helped to improve client satisfaction, minimise issues and encourages clients to recommend them to others.
