Michael Houlihan & Partners (MHP) has been providing trusted legal services from our historical building in Bindon Street, Ennis, since 1933. We have a long tradition of association with The Law Society of Ireland, and while our firm has undergone several partnership developments and new additions, our focus remains the same…

To use our unquestioned integrity and years of experience to offer our clients unparalleled legal services.

Our partners, each specialising in a different field, allow us to provide advice and representation in every legal area – from employment law and litigation to commercial legal matters. Our large and diverse support team means we can handle projects of scale, but our service is always defined by a personal and proactive partnership approach.

Our Professional  Cornerstones

As a legal firm rooted in tradition, the way we work is informed by our non-negotiable ethics and values…

Ethics Above All

The right thing to do is not always the easiest thing to do – but at MHP we’re dedicated to advising you on what’s right and just, always informed by knowledge, skill and experience.

Always Serve

We work hard to maintain our reputation for personal, individual and supportive service at all times.

Break New Ground

We have been involved in many litigation and medical malpractice cases that have changed the face of law in important ways. In 2017, for example, an MHP case saw the President of the High Court, Peter Kelly, reach a landmark decision regarding the rights of people in a minimally-conscious state. In 2004 MHP was involved in the largest medical negligence settlement in the State at that time.

Today’s Technology

To ensure a premium service, we have always invested in technology. In 2010, ours was the first legal firm to develop its own web-enabled, case management system. The first of its kind in Ireland – this system lets us track, update and monitor all cases, easily and efficiently.

History and Reputation

Nothing competes with experience and heritage. That’s why our great name as a legal firm of choice guides every decision we make.

Quality Work

MHP has achieved the ISO 9001:2015 quality mark accreditation until July 2023. This merit speaks volumes about our work as it has a clear focus on customer satisfaction and on the importance of understanding and fulfilling client requirements.


MHP is a growing firm that continually attracts new solicitors and makes available two trainee positions each year. While our heritage is our foundation – we always embrace the benefits of new talent.
