Melissa Donegan-Legal Intern

“I joined McKenna & Co Solicitors in the Summer of 2022 as a legal intern and consider it the best decision I have made in my career to date. Looking back, what stands out to me, is the on-going training, support and guidance that I received. Such supports include regular mental health check ins, career progression opportunities, monthly entertainment events, and an enthusiastic team who supported me throughout my internship. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity that all team members are given to complete a workshop in positive leadership, as this is an important skill that will serve as extremely beneficial throughout my career.

The passion and motivation that all team members have in delivering excellence in client service is an admirable quality that is unique to McKenna & Co Solicitors and a driving force behind the success of the company. From working with a team of motivated, determined and passionate individuals, I learnt the importance of these transferable qualities, which I will take with me throughout my career path. The work we do for these clients are extremely varied and include a good mix of property law transactions, litigation, commercial law transactions and personal injury claims. I completed many exciting tasks throughout my internship with the firm, whereby I developed and built on my communication, research, IT, listening and leadership skills.
I also was taken aback by the number of charity events that the firm continue to support, including their annual sleep out for the homeless, which the team will be participating in again on October 14th.
Finally, I worked with enthusiastic, determined, motivated and bubbly personalities, which really enriched my experience. The success of any company is down to its team and the team at McKenna & Co Solicitors are committed, optimistic, and supportive characters who guided and supported me throughout my internship journey. Lisa is the principal Solicitor at the firm and is a truly admirable and inspiring woman to any young person looking to establish a career in law. I couldn’t have asked for better support, guidance or opportunities for career progression. My experience with the firm was so beneficial for me because it has made me realise that becoming a solicitor is the path I would like to go down. I can’t recommend the firm enough.”

Jack Duhig-Trainee Solicitor

“I joined McKenna & Co Solicitors in 2020 and commenced my traineeship with the firm in 2021. The support and guidance I have receive from the firm ensures that my traineeship is dynamic and I have been exposed to and worked on a wide variety of matters. McKenna & Co places the client’s needs first and foremost which is a work ethos that drives commitment in the firm and that I have found to correspond strongly to my own values.
The firm is also committed to charity and to social initiatives with their being a social event planned every month which makes it a great place to work.”
