TIERNEY IP’s mission is not simply to just deliver legal services, but also to acquire and maintain a full understanding and appreciation of what a client’s business is about. All new clients are provided with an initial complimentary consultation so that we have a full understanding of what brand protection objectives you have and how we may help you to achieve and maintain them.
Our founder, Níall Tierney, has over 25 years experience as a leading Intellectual Property lawyer. His expertise has been recognised in top independent legal directories such as “The Legal 500” and “WTR 1000”. Having worked both in private practice and in-house in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, Níall is one of the most highly rated Intellectual Property lawyers in Ireland. He is qualified to practice as a Trade Mark & Design Attorney before the European Union Intellectual Property Office; the Intellectual Property Office of Ireland; the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization.
How we charge
TIERNEY IP is an efficiently run Intellectual Property law practice which deliberately keeps its operating costs and overheads low. Our fees and the way we charge clients are therefore highly competitive. We always endeavour to make clients aware of the cost of a matter before we undertake work.
For most matters, we charge on the basis of fixed fees. For those matters which are not charged on a fixed fee basis, TIERNEY IP actively encourages clients to work with us on the basis of our ‘Alternative Fee’ (non ‘hourly rate’) arrangements. We are more than prepared to tailor our fee arrangements to specific client needs. If you would like more information about our fixed fees and/or ‘Alternative Fee’ arrangements, please do not hesitate to contact us.
