Why choose our Litigation and Dispute Resolution lawyers?We understand the demands that disputes place on our clients’ resources and focus. We actively listen to each of our clients and work hard to understand their specific objectives and agree a strategy to achieve those objectives.
The department acts for and advises clients in all aspects of commercial litigation, insurance, insolvency, procurement, pensions, judicial review, professional negligence and employment related disputes. Our commercial clients include both domestic and international entities that operate in the insurance, IT, aviation, retail, banking, financial and regulatory sectors.
The Litigation and Dispute Resolution department is recognised across all Court jurisdictions, with particular emphasis on High Court and Court of Appeal litigation. We are active supporters of the use of mediation as a method of resolving disputes and a number of our partners are CEDR accredited mediators.
We help clients get results in commercial disputes. For example, we recently represented a long-standing supplier to An Garda Siochána (Irish Police Force) in analysing and challenging a flawed procurement process. Our client’s business faced collapse had the process proceeded unchallenged. Our advice and representation allowed our client to remain in business.
