Each week we like to reach out to those who are a part of the Gray Office Park Community to hear more about their business! This week we had a chat with Jason O’Sullivan. Jason has been a part of the Gray Office Park community for the past few years now and we thought it was the right time to share more about the company.

What is the most rewarding part about the work you do?
“Growing up, I was always fascinated by the judicial system depicted through TV and film and always believed it was an important profession that could make a positive contribution on both an individual and societal level. Fundamentally, law and the practice thereof, is about people, so achieving success can be largely dependent on the combination of requisite legal knowledge and complimentary people skills. It is always very rewarding to achieve the optimum result for clients and particularly in cases where you feel justice has prevailed”.
What was a highlight of 2018 for you?
“I was delighted that both the firm and I received five award nominations at last year’s Law Awards, in categories alongside long established law firms. I was extremely proud and honoured to have won “Connacht/Ulster Sole Practitioner/Sole Principal of the Year” and to receive such valued recognition from my industry peers and colleagues”.
What do you love most about Galway?
“Galway is a great city to live and do business in. When setting up the firm in 2015, I was very conscious of having the main office in Galway and returned from Dublin to do so. Galway has the perfect balance to enhance ones family life and business endeavours. There is also a very positive and innovative atmosphere around the Galway business community”.
What is your goal for 2019? Personal or business related!
“The firm’s success has been beyond my expectations to date and I am thoroughly enjoying the chance to steer the firm in the innovative direction I envisaged at its inception. I look forward to continuing to grow the firm, team and brand over the next year in order to best serve the expanding client base both locally and nationally”
