From our Clients
  • “As Principal of O’Dwyer & Co. Accountants in Dungarvan I frequently avail of the professional services provided by CLS Chartered Secretaries to ensure my clients have access to the best possible advice and service in all areas of company law & company secretarial services.
    I have previously used other companies to provide these services but always felt that I was not getting the premium service which I believe my clients deserve. A colleague of mine recommended CLS to me and since engaging their services I have never looked back. The company has a most professional and friendly ethos which extends right through the company making it a pleasure to deal with Conor and the entire team. I am now reassured that my clients are getting invaluable accurate advice in a prompt manner, which enables me to confidently outsource this element of my business to the experts!
    I would have no hesitation in recommending CLS to anyone seeking access to specialist company secretarial and company law services.”

    Brendan O’Dwyer
    O’Dwyer & Co. Accountants, Registered Auditors & Tax Advisors

  • “As a leading independent firm of accountants and business advisors in Cork, we have used CLS Chartered Secretaries again and again for our company formation and other company secretarial needs. We have always found Conor, Amy and all their colleagues to be reliable, prompt and professional and they have consistently provided a first-class service.
    Through their extensive experience and knowledge of Company Law, they have assisted us in navigating the many complex company secretarial issues our clients have. If you are in need of an experienced company secretarial team, we would highly recommend engaging CLS Chartered Secretaries for anyone looking for professional company secretarial services.”

    Mervyn Good
    MacSweeney & Co. Chartered Accountants

  • “Working with CLS has made our work in relation to company secretarial work so much easier, no question or query (we have plenty) is ever too much trouble. Their knowledge of all aspects of company law is second to none. We decided to change to working with CLS as previously we had dealt with a larger firm and as CLS is a smaller company, we find the staff more personable. Also, from a financial point of view, CLS was more a more economical choice. All tasks carried out by CLS are done efficiently and to a very high standard. In short, we would be lost without them!”

    Donna Friel
    Market House CoSec Ltd.

  • “I first came to do business with CLS as I had known Conor a long time and it’s good to support a new local business. I am delighted with the service. We had previously done similar work with another company, these were cheaper and at the start we would have done maybe one in three with CLS. Now we are so happy with the system we only use CLS. The work is always done efficiently and they are pleasant and always willing to help with our clients’ changing ideas.”

    Catriona Kavanagh
    McDonnell Maher & Co.

  • “We met Conor in 2016 and we were very impressed with his knowledge of Company Law and his expertise in Corporate Compliance. We have been dealing with CLS Chartered Secretaries since then and find them extremely helpful, efficient and professional. They are always able to answer queries that we may have, and all the team are very courteous and friendly. They issue regular newsletters which keep us informed. We would recommend CLS to other firms.”

    John Slye
