Karen Walsh, Solicitor
Karen Walsh, Solicitor, specialises in Agricultural Law, Renewable Energy, Land Law, Boundary and Neighbour Disputes, Landlord and Tenant, Family Law, Commercial and Residential Conveyancing and Wills and Probate.
Being from a farming background, Karen has a particular interest in the modern agricultural issues facing farmers. She writes a weekly legal column for the Irish Examiner’s Farming supplement and other publications, contributes regularly to radio and TV programmes and is a regular guest speaking at farming events. She is the author of “Farming and The Law”.
In recent times, she has advised farmers and landowners in relation to the development of wind farms and solar farms on their land. Wind farms and solar farms can be seen as a lucrative form of extra income. However, the development of wind turbines or solar panels on land can significantly affect a landowner’s property rights and land in the future. Landowners are strongly advised to seek independent legal advice before entering into any agreement with a wind farm or solar farm developer.
