High Court appoints inspector to investigate Christmas tree firm

As you may have seen in the news, the application by Peter Boyle & Co. Solicitors to appoint an Inspector to WFS Forestry was successful.

This is the first ever successful application by a creditor to appoint a High Court Inspector to an Irish company under section 747 of the Companies Act and we are delighted and proud to have been involved in the development of the law in this area.


What our clients say

I found Mr Boyle to be incredibly professional and thorough in all my dealings with him. Not being used to the legal process at all, he achieved the result I had hoped for and I couldn't have asked for more effective representation. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Michael Doyle August 3, 2022

Peter and his team have represented me in my capacity as a liquidator of various companies for more than 10 years. I am continuously grateful for their depth of knowledge and experience in fraud and company law matters as well as their willingness to take innovative approaches to novel problems. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
