Fiona Burke has assisted me on different projects over the last few years. On each occasion she provided a very professional and efficient service and I have recommended Fiona and Purdy and Co to numerous colleagues and clients. I am very happy with the service Fiona has provided and I would have no hesitation in making contact should an occasion arise where I need Purdy and Co’s services in the future.

Fiona Burke looked after the purchase of our house. As we are first time buyers, this was an exciting process for us. Fiona was so down to earth and explained every step in clear detail. We found our house in November and were in by the start of January. I can't recommend Fiona enough!

Paul O’Carroll

The service provided by Fiona in Purdy and Co was second to none. We dealt with Fiona in relation to a contract issue with a hotel and she could not have been more helpful. She explained everything in simple terms and her responses to emails were very efficient. She took the stress out of the situation. I would strongly recommend Fiona and Purdy and Co to anyone who needs legal advice or assistance.

Elaine Lawless

Fiona Burke was my Solicitor who dealt with the probate of my father’s estate. As my dad passed away whilst living abroad and had no Will, this probate was quite complex. Despite this, Fiona finalised everything within a couple of months. Fiona dealt with matters in a professional, efficient, calm and kind manner. She explained everything in detail throughout the process and kept me fully informed at all stages. I would highly recommend Fiona.

Priscilla O’Carroll

Excellent service! Money well spent! I highly recommend Fiona, she took all the pressure and stress from me in selling my home. She shared her wealth of experience and was very personally in her contact from start to finish. Fiona was very accessible throughout the sale and I would likely recommend her to my friends/family/colleagues into the future.

Purdy & Co were originally introduced to Blenders on the basis of a strong recommendation from a professional HR Manager. As a small company, we required comprehensive support to navigate all aspects of people management. Alastair and the team have been instrumental in assisting Blenders with practical legal advice that recognises the importance of staff whilst being practical from a commercial perspective. Their advice is frequently sought by us in developing policies and procedures that are commensurate with our business and the ever-changing legal landscape.
