Our Team and Approach

As natural relationship builders, our team delivers a personal, client-centred service in an open and transparent manner.

Our Culture

We strive to create a professional environment underpinned by an internal culture that facilitates an "inside-out" formation of excellent client relationships. The firm's growth is supported by these deep relationships.

At ReganWall, you will find a positive work culture with highly engaged, happy staff that enjoy coming to work; who are team players and believe in our vision.

From speaking to a large number of entrepreneurs, we sense a great deal of frustration regarding the over-specialisation of lawyers in the larger firms. We are therefore offering a different kind of lawyer, who is a trusted adviser across the corporate and commercial spectrum. This is why we are the “go to” advisers for many successful businesses across Ireland.

We are fully committed to each matter or transaction we take on. In both transactional and advisory work, we adopt a hands-on approach and strive to achieve a successful outcome.

We value ambition and drive, not just in our team but also in our clients. We want to support you as you grow, and our service will evolve with you. We work to foster a deep understanding of each of our clients, their individual goals and their unique challenges. This understanding supports a business relationship, based on trust and experience, that delivers results.
