Donegal law firm Brian J McMullin Solicitors has opened an office in Killybegs at Bruach Na Mara, the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation headquarters.

A finalist at the Irish Law Awards 2019, the firm provides a wide range of legal services to individual, business and public body clients across Donegal, the North West, Dublin and further afield, and also provides in-house legal services to Waterways Ireland at that organisation’s headquarters in Enniskillen.

Incorporating VP McMullin (Ballyshannon), Brittons, Ramage & Britton and Lipsett & Ramage, the Ballyshannon firm traces its origins to 1899 and is currently celebrating 120 years in practice. The firm merged with VP McMullin—the practice established in 1921 by Vincent P. McMullin in Donegal—in 1991.

Under the longstanding stewardship of Brian McMullin, former Partner in VP McMullin, who acquired the practice in 2018,  the practice continues to evolve and embrace technology and innovation for the benefit of its clients.

Mr McMullin said, “We are absolutely delighted to open in Killybegs and to provide a more convenient base for our friends and clients in the Killybegs area and throughout West Donegal”. He added: “The delivery of quality legal services in a cost-efficient manner has always been, and continues to be, our focus.”

Whilst the present needs of the firm’s clients are always the primary focus, the firm is proud of its link with the past through our Principal Brian McMullin, grandson of Vincent P. McMullin and son of Eunan T. McMullin.
