I act for many of Ireland’s lending institutions and am involved in multiple High Court, Commercial Court and Court of Appeal litigation against defaulting borrowers, personal guarantors and syndicated property companies and partnerships.

I act for most of the leading insolvency practitioners in Ireland in their roles as receivers, liquidators and examiners.

I have considerable experience in commercial litigation generally, dealing with many issues from shareholder and partnership breakdown to various forms of contractual and tortious disputes. I have an excellent blend of technical skills combined with a strong negotiating style.

I adopt a hands-on yet approachable manner, enabling me to deliver a tailored, efficient legal service.

I have advised court-appointed liquidators in nearly 100 Official Liquidations and advised the various stakeholders (directors, shareholders, creditors and banks) in many more. 

I also act for the Insolvency Service of Ireland (ISI) in relation to all aspects of bankruptcy law and the many Court applications required to manage Ireland’s bankruptcy community.

I regularly lecture in the Law Society of Ireland and in the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ireland on insolvency law matters. Most recently, I designed and delivered a Diploma course on advocacy in the Law Society in November 2018. I have also contributed to many industry publications including the Law Society Gazette and Accountancy Ireland.

I sit on the ISIP Council and chair the ISIP Law Reform Committee. I am a former member of the INSOL Technical Committee.
