Our People

Ronan Maguire – Director & Principal Solicitor. Ronan’s first job in the law was as a criminal litigation clerk in his native town of Enniskillen in Northern Ireland back in 1993. He qualified as a solicitor in 1997 and has practiced as an Advocate in the Higher Courts since 2002. This means he has over 20 years experience working in criminal law.

Over the years Ronan has worked on numerous high profile cases and is well known for his robust approach to defending his clients.

Ronan has developed a particular specialism in defending allegations of serious financial and regulatory crime. Consequently the firm have been involved in some of the most high profile HMRC prosecutions in recent years. Ronan regularly deals with complex proceeds of crime applications and has yet to allow the Crown to successfully pursue a claim of Hidden Assets.

Ronan has had significant success overturning both convictions and sentences at the Court of Appeal. See the notable cases section for our most recent success. Despite this Ronan believes in being hands on and is as comfortable attending the police station and magistrates court as he is appealing a conviction at the Court of Appeal. In fact getting the best possible advice from the outset is often crucial to a defence case, so call Ronan today


Claire as a dual honours degree from York University and previously worked as a BBC & freelance television and radio producer. Claire assisted Ronan in establishing the practice and she now manages all aspects of it.
