Foreign Process Serving Spikes in Ireland-Florida Banks Chase Irish Property Investors

Share Article

Terry Gorry & Co. Solicitors, a growing law firm in Ireland, reports a significant increase in it’s international client base with American lenders, pursuing errant Irish debtors, requiring service of process and legal papers on their delinquent Irish clients.

Terry Gorry & Co. Solicitors is seeing a significant growth in it’s client base from American banks and finance providers who advanced mortgages to many Irish real estate investors.

Terry Gorry & Co. are increasingly being called upon to serve process from law firms, banks and credit institutions in the U.S. whose Irish debtors have simply gone home to Ireland and left their debts behind.

Or so they think..

Irish real estate investors, during the so called “Celtic Tiger” years, poured into states like Florida and elsewhere and snapped up holiday homes, apartments, beach front residences and other properties fuelled by an Irish love affair with real estate.

However the dream soon soured with the downturn in the world and Irish economies and many U.S. lenders have been forced to foreclose on the property of their Irish clients. Serving judicial and other legal papers on their Irish clients has been a problem for U.S. companies unfamiliar with the Irish legal system.

Terry Gorry & Co. Solicitors has reported a growing interest in their services which includes the serving of foreign legal papers on Defendants in legal actions in Ireland.

American attorneys and lending institutions are finding it much more cost effective to have a local law firm effect service in accordance with the Hague Convention which lays down the procedure for such service in transnational litigation.

Terry Gorry, the Principal of Terry Gorry & Co. explains: ”We are delighted with the increase in our client base from the U.S. who see the benefit of having a local Irish firm on the ground representing their interests here.”
