    The Firm - Episode 7: Breaking 10

    The Firm - Episode 7: Breaking 10

    On the 29th of July 2018, Offaly man Gary Flannery will attempt to write himself into the history books when he not only takes part in the Zurich Iron man but attempts to cross the finish line in less than 10 hours. We speak to Gary to try to find out what motivates someone to push the bounds to such extremes. What does it take to train for such a gruelling endeavour and most importantly how is a winning mind set formed and maintained through such an exhausting test of human endurance?

    The commercial world is fraught with risk on a daily basis. It takes drive, determination and precise planning to navigate to success. Sport is no different. What we draw from winning athletes can be overlaid onto the business world to provide that all important competitive edge. Clarke Jeffers are delighted to be associated with Gary’s “Breaking 10” and Saplings school Carlow. We embrace risk and admire those who aren’t afraid to hold themselves out there in pursuit of their goal. They aren’t just athletes, they are those who are leading and shaping the new business world.

So with that being the case we meet with Ann Marie Tierney of the IDA and John Fitzgerald, Inward Investment tax specialist with McInerney Saunders and ask the question, “Why invest and locate your business in Ireland. Is it really all it’s cracked up to be?”

    The Firm - Episode 4: Cyber Crime. The modern day boogieman

    If you think you are too small to be hacked then you are a prime target. Cyber security is fast becoming the number one threat to small and medium sized business in Ireland. Phishing, email scams, credit card fraud and cyber ransom are all becoming more prevalent and far more sophisticated. What are your rights and duties if you are hacked? If your (or your clients) monies are stolen then who is responsible and are you liable? What legal obligations do you have in relation to Data under your care or control and is it possible to insure against cyber-crime and the theft of such data? In this episode Victor Clarke is joined by barrister and specialist in cyber Law, Ronan Lupton and also by cyber Insurance experts Anthony O’Leary and Brian O’Mara of O’Leary Insurance. The panel discuss the dangers posed to both individuals and businesses and how those dangers can be minimised. This Episode of “The Firm” is a must for anyone connected to the internet! A wise man once said “There are two types of people in Ireland. Those who have been the victim of cyber-crime and those who have been victim of cyber-crime but don’t know it”. It pays to be informed.

    The Firm - Episode 2: Should I stay or should I go now?

    This episode of The Firm podcast is a discussion on all aspects of buying and selling property in Ireland: where we have come from and where we might be going to in the future.

We are looking at numerous issues pertaining to the buying and selling of property in Ireland today. Is it a good time to buy? Is there finance available? What about the rental market? Should I build? One of the most important questions we ask is: why do Irish people have such an interest in owning property. It is an open discussion which we hope will shed some light on the current property market.
