I have advised 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. My clients are spread across a number of industries including technology, media, utilities and professional services. 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 have lectured and presented widely on employment law issues with bodies such as the Law Society of Ireland, International Bar Association, Employment Law Alliance, Legal Island and CIPD, and have published various articles on HR law issues in mainstream media and specialist publications.

What others say…
