HISTORY

In 1890, fourteen years before James Joyce’s Ulysses sent Leopold Bloom on his epic tour of Dublin, co-founder Charles Ellis joined with the already established company of James T. Ellis, Law Searchers to form a new firm Ellis & Ellis (Pedigree, Law & Patent Searching Agents). In the intervening 130 years or so, this fully Irish and family-owned company has continued to serve solicitors and legal professionals, with great pride in its work ethic, traditions, and durability. Ellis & Ellis face into this third century confident in our aim to continue serving the legal profession to the high standards, and reliability that have become our bywords.

Bankruptcy Searches – An Ellis & Ellis Explainer

What is Bankruptcy? Bankruptcy is a process where, for a person who is wholly or partially unable to repay their debts (both secured and unsecured), a compromise with creditors is agreed and approved, and entered into with the court’s oversight.
