Examinership, similar to Chapter 11 in the United States, was introduced to Ireland back in 1990. Up until 2013, an application (formally known as a Petition) by a company to enter into examinership could only be made before the High Court but since 2013, if your company suits certain criteria, you can bring an Examinership Application in the Circuit Court.

It is amazing that almost half of Irish people never make a Will! 
The consequences for their families and for themselves can often be quite damaging. A Will allows you to take control of your life and your monies and it makes sure they go to the person who needs them or to whom you want them to go.  
Making a Will does not mean, as some people seem to think, that you will die tomorrow. It merely means that if anything does happen, your affairs will be in order and you can amend your Will, at any time, especially if you have a life changing event. 
Let me give some examples: - 
The manner in which you can lay off staff is set out in Section 11 of the Redundancy Payments Acts 1967.

At Marcus Lynch Solicitors we got it right - read what our client had to say .... 
It is amazing how little attention business owners pay to their relationships with their co-workers, directors and fellow shareholders.
