Boyd Rice Solicitors Ltd in Newtownards & Belfast, Northern Ireland: Review

Unusually, the thing that first appealed to us about Boyd Rice Solicitors was the fact they were more interested in adding their Newtownards office to the network instead of their Belfast location. Being from the North East of Scotland I suffer greatly from rural-bias (it's a thing).

However we wouldn't recommend a firm based solely on them wanting to serve a rural population. Yes, a firm that enjoys and promotes a 'local' office is something people are increasingly drawn to. But after our initial interest was sparked, we did further homework.

"Boyd Rice Solicitors is a long established Law Firm and has been providing legal advice to clients throughout Northern Ireland for over 30 years."

Boyd Rice Solicitors Ltd

If you've also done your homework and spotted that Boyd Rice Solicitors Ltd was only incorporate in 2017, this "30 years" statement on their website might be confusing. Just to clarify, in these situations it's usually just that the firm was not a limited company prior to the date Companies House have listed for them. Even just a small name change can result in a brand new incorporation date with a firm that's existed for decades.

Whilst staff details are normally just a quick footnote in most of our other articles, on this occasion it seems key to the setup. So I'm going to start there. Neil McGranaghan manages the litigation department and has extensive experience dealing with injury claims including those that occurred outside Northern Ireland - such as the Republic of Ireland or Europe. Claire OíMahony joined the firm in 1994 and is experienced in all aspects of family law including divorce, children, unmarried couple disputes, and so on. Ben Wall mostly handles property matters having had a varied career, including time as a barrister and at a major international law firm.

Whilst this may look like just a quick bunch of mini CVs, what might not have stood out is the fact each lists their direct email and phone number contact details. That's much rarer than you might think. We've been working with and reviewing law firms for over 20 years so you can take our word on that. The information SBW provide also shows a wide range of varied backgrounds and lengthy histories within the legal industry. Not only that, but each person is quite focused on specific case types rather than trying to 'jack-of-all-trade's it.

"Don't most firms do that?" No. We've just reviewed a firm where the two main solicitors listed their secretaries' (plural) contact details instead of their own. As you'd expect, the public reviews of that particular firm included several comments about clients feeling fobbed off onto junior staff. But what about BoydRice reviews? If you've read some of our other articles, you'll have seen us whinge endlessly about the lacklustre testimonials solicitors post on their websites:

"I couldnít recommend enough ..."
"Canít thank Boyd Rice Solicitors enough ..."
"... will definitely use again."
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Neil to anyone."


Flicking through the testimonial pages of most law firm's websites will just give you a serious case of deja vu. You usually have to go to third party spots like Google, Yell, Yelp, etc. to see unsolicited reviews with all their spelling mistakes, excessive capitalisation and lengthy descriptions of why they are or are not happy. But in this instance nearly all the well written, spellchecked, and flattering reviews from Boyd Rice's site appear on the public review sites as well.

We've always said that if you see a chunk of 5 star, glowing, well written reviews on public sites which have all been posted by reviewers who've only ever reviewed the one firm and no one else - then trust your gut instinct that they are fake. It could be that the firm in question have posted them or they've hired a third party to do so. (If you don't believe faking reviews is easy, type 'buy reviews' into a search engine.) TripAdvisor are the worst for this problem. But as these reviews also appear on Boyd Rice's main website, it's actually more likely they're genuine and the reviewers were simply encouraged to post their comments on the third party review sites as well.

It really shouldn't be this hard to navigate public reviews, should it ...

Anyway. Unfortunately, the Northern Ireland Law Society website is not as informative as its England & Wales counterpart. Usually we would link to the firm's Law Society page so you could see the various expertise and experience details of the firm and its solicitors. Instead we're going to finish with a link to an article on BoydRice's sponsorship of the Tour of Ards race. As the name suggests, it's like the Tour de France, but without the "de" and it's around Ards.

It's increasingly common these days for firms to connect with something charitable. They may simply list an organisation they support. They might have a costume day to raise money, clean up a park, sponsor a sports team, or join in with existing ventures such as Will Aid. Boyd Rice have obviously taken an interest in cycling and sponsored that. The more cynical amongst you may dislike when firms do this and see it as a cheap marketing ploy. But as it's something we do as well, we can vouch that not all firms do it for 'PR'.

"Our aim is to provide you with professional and friendly legal advice with a view to creating a long-term solicitor/client relationship."


A quick word on navigation as the web address is trickier than you might think. We link to the official .com version above but at the moment www.boydricesolicitors.co.uk also redirects you there. People are unlikely to mis-spell Boyd in the same way they do Lloyd, but neither www.boydrice.com or www.boydrice.co.uk exist and with other variations such as singular "solicitor", the old Boyd Rice & Co company name or even Boyd & Rice - it's probably still a good idea to bookmark the site once you're on it. Especially with the amount of property scams still going. Remember that no solicitor should contact you about paying money or bank details via email.

General Notes: Usually if Legal Aid is possible we've mentioned it above, but you can always ask. We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. For a career with Boyd Rice Solicitors Ltd it's best to visit the website (www.boydricesolicitors.com), check opening hours, and find the correct phone/email contact details. Simply emailing a CV to reception looks lazy. Each law firm's Law Society and/or SRA number should be on their site, usually at the bottom of each page.
