Covid 19 Webinar

Dear Colleagues,

Please see below details of a webinar hosted by Flor McCarthy of Mcarthy & Co, Clonakilty, Cork dealing with the current challenges that the legal profession face with the current Covid 19 crisis.

I would like to thank Claire O’Doherty of MacDermot & Allen for bringing this to my attention.

The Covid-19 situation is extremely serious and completey unprecedented.

Our primary concern has to be the health and safety of ourselves, our families, our co-workers and our communities.

Our immediate secondary concern is the survival of our businesses in what is going to be an incredibly difficult period.

We are not alone and we will get through this together. But many of us are isolated now and it is difficult to know what best to do to deal with the situation.

In light of this, I have arranged a special webinar on Friday, 20 March 2020 from 1pm to 2pm when I will be joined by experienced practitioner and long standing former Law Society Council member Martin Lawlor to discuss our own experiences of the situation, review the current guidance, take questions from the audience and discuss matters arising.

To register for the webinar just go here.

This will be an opportunity to get together and share information and experience about this situation without travelling or phsyically meeting. We don’t pretend to have the answers, we have as many questions as you have, but hopefully this will be an opportunity to get together and share knowledge and experience at what is a very difficult time for everyone.

The registration link again is here.

Kind Regards,


Flor McCarthy
