Solicitor Barry Crushell has announced the launch of a new specialist workplace law firm, Crushell & Co Solicitors.

Mr Crushell, who trained with Arthur Cox and previously founded the Dublin and London offices of a US law firm, told Irish Legal News that the COVID-19 pandemic had been a “driving catalyst” in his decision to launch the firm.

Crushell & Co aims to address employers’ and employees’ need for clear, concise and actionable advice on employment-related legal issues in the wake of the pandemic’s profound impact on the Irish workforce.

Mr Crushell said: “Our goal is to build a practice that can bring deep legal knowledge and expertise in servicing both employer and employee client requirements.

“By focusing on a small number of interconnected practice areas, specific to the working environment, such as employment law, data protection and employment immigration, we hope to develop a unique identity as a firm within the Irish legal market.”

The growth of remote working following the pandemic and related health restrictions had also opened the path for establishing a law firm with lower operating costs, he said.

“We have the advantage of taking the lessons we have learned from the crisis and applying our new working systems as a core feature of how we work,” Mr Crushell explained.

“By combining top class practice management systems, with agile working practices, we can offer a more streamlined service, at a better rate – that can only be a positive to our clients.”
