I have advised on a wide range of Irish and multinational corporate, public and institutional clients on all aspects of Irish employment law from recruitment to retirement including contentious, advisory and transactional work. I also advise on industrial relations issues arising from mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing and redundancy situations.
In advising clients, I always seek to communicate the salient issues succinctly and accurately, always offering outcome-focused solutions.
I advise a wide range of Irish and multinational corporate, public, commercial semi-state and institutional clients, partnerships and senior executives on all aspects of Irish employment law from recruitment to retirement including contentious, advisory and transactional work.
