Flor McCarthy Managing Partner
Flor McCarthy wears multiple hats, not only as the managing partner of one of Ireland’s leading law firms, but also as an author, speaker and an acknowledged expert in client service, innovation and marketing.
Beginning his academic journey at UCC, Flor furthered his education with a master’s degree in law from UCD. After gaining valuable experience as a solicitor in Dublin, the allure of home and the family brought him back to West Cork to contribute his expertise to the family business.
Flor has been the head of the firm now for over two decades and is the driving force behind our team’s growth. Forever exploring ways to enhance our services for our valued clients, his innovative and client-focused approach was recognised in 2018 when he was awarded Munster Solicitor of the Year at the Irish Law Awards.
Flor’s credentials extend beyond the typical scope of a solicitor. He is a Certified Information Privacy Professional and has been elected numerous times to the Council of the Law Society of Ireland, the governing body for Irish solicitors. In addition to his qualifications in Ireland, Flor is admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales and serves as a notary public for the County of Cork.
Along with the above achievements, Flor is also a published author in his field and regularly contributes articles to various publications, as his insights and opinions are often sought after for press interviews and appearances on radio and television.
Ever a lifelong learner, Flor made the decision to return to Irish in a bid to reconnect with his roots. In 2020, Flor resat his Irish Leaving Certificate exam, 30 years on. Since then, he has gone on to complete the Higher Diploma in Modern Irish at UCC and is showing no signs of stopping any time soon. This pursuit of continual personal and professional growth is testament to his insatiable curiosity and dedication to improvement, which benefits our clients and our team alike.
When he is not immersed in the day-to-day management of a busy law firm or learning something new, Flor enjoys spending time with his wife Mags, and their five children. He finds pleasure in gardening, cooking, and dining with good company and fine wine. A voracious reader, Flor will more often be found with a book in hand or an audio version in his ears.
His multifaceted expertise and enthusiasm for both his work and learning make Flor the backbone of our firm, an excellent leader, and a dedicated advocate for our amazing clients.
