Our History

The firm was founded in December 1900 by Patrick O’Connor (1874-1942). He was a member of a prominent business family in Swinford, County Mayo and president of the Mayo Solicitors’ Bar Association from 1932 to 1942.

The O’Connor family has a long tradition in legal practice in Ireland. Thomas V. O’Connor (1916-1988) was a solicitor, coroner and the President of the Law Society of Ireland in 1972. John W. O’Connor (1918-1978) was a barrister and a Circuit Court Judge. Moya O’Connor (1917-1998) was a solicitor and deputy coroner.

Patrick O’Connor, the current managing partner, is a solicitor, coroner and notary public. In 1998, he was president of the Law Society of Ireland. He has three brothers all of whom are practising lawyers based in Dublin.
