The reason I did this is to better serve clients who wish to do business in Ireland and those there who wish to do business in Texas. This is all part of an effort to literally and figuratively expand the borders of the firm.
Houston (PRWEB) November 3, 2010 -
Michael P. Fleming, the founder of the law firm Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C., and former Harris County Attorney, was recently admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in the Republic of Ireland. A solicitor is equivalent to an attorney or lawyer in North America.
Fleming was recently notified that he had passed the battery of tests to be a member of the Law Society of Ireland and is investigating the process of creating an office in Ireland.
"Ireland has maintained a very attractive business climate for international companies," Fleming said. "The reason I did this is to better serve clients who wish to do business in Ireland and those there who wish to do business in Texas. This is all part of an effort to literally and figuratively expand the borders of the firm."
Fleming said the move made sense, especially since smart businesses and innovative business leaders will be looking for global opportunities as the international economy tries to mend itself. A certified mediator, Fleming also noted that this would enhance his international mediation practice.
Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C. is a Houston-based civil litigation, real estate and business law firm that is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
