About Us

The name Yelverton has been synonymous with the legal profession for hundreds of years. The name appears in British Legal circles as early as the beginning of the 15th Century with Henry IV appointing William Yelverton to the Kings Bench.

Christopher Yelverton was a lawyer and Attorney General under Elizabeth I in or about 1603 and his son Henry was appointed Attorney General in 1617.

In 1772, closer to home Barry Yelverton was called to the Bar and became an M.P. in 1781. He introduced an Act (Yelverton’s Act) to amend Poyning’s Act so that bills passed only by both Houses of Parliament in Ireland would be sent to England for assent. This allowed the Catholic Relief Acts to be introduced and provided for Catholics to own certain land, to act as Guardians and to be teachers. He became Attorney General of Ireland in 1782 and later Judge as Chief Baron of the Exchequer. His portrait hangs in the Dining Hall of the King’s Inns in Dublin.

Gerard P.Yelverton, Principal of the Firm, has a much humbler and less lofty history. He was educated by the Christian Brothers before attending University College Dublin, the Law Society of Ireland and qualified as a Solicitor in Michaelmas 1980.

Following his enrolment with the High Court he has gained invaluable experience working for a well known Limerick City firm.  In 1986 he became a partner of a long established practice until establishing Yelverton & Co. 

Gerard has completed many years as a general practitioner. Throughout his career he has acted for a wide range of clients, both private and institutional.
