Property handled Properly

McShanes are widely acknowledged as one of the leading residential property Solicitors in Northern Ireland. Our service is competitive in both price and speed. We can advise on every aspect concerned with buying, selling or letting your home. We always provide a quotation for our fees in writing.

Wills- Thinking about tomorrow

A Will is an expression of your personal wishes.  If you don’t make one then the law takes over.  Its rules define who will act as your executors, who will be your beneficiaries – and in some cases how much of your estate they receive. We offer a practical and jargon-free will-making service.

Accidents, We're on your side

We have an excellent reputation for obtaining high awards of compensation for clients in personal injury and medical negligence cases. We understand the impact of personal injury and our Solicitors will support you, at all stages of your claim. We are committed to making the whole process of obtaining compensation, as stress free as possible.

Advice to business

We provide advices to businesses on a wide range of issues. If your business needs help, for example,  in relation to employment or staffing issues, health and safety regulations, commercial disputes, debt recovery, strategic planning, restructuring or selling your business, help is available at both our Newry and Kilkeel offices.
