New budget legal service

A NEW legal service claims it will offer savings of up to 50pc on legal fees by cutting out the overheads associated with a traditional Irish law firm.
Access Legal is the brainchild of John Gleeson, a former employee of Quinlan Private.
By removing overheads such as large city centre offices, trainee staff and pyramid partnership structures, the firm offers much lower legal fees.
The company has brought together a team of former big-firm solicitors, all of whom are qualified for at least seven years.
"Our clients are paying for the advice, not the art collection," says Mr Gleeson, a qualified barrister and son of former Attorney General and former AIB chairman Dermot Gleeson.
