Neil Cahill | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content
I specialise in insurance litigation acting for both major insurers and self-insured's in defending personal injury claims.  I have significant experience in acting in catastrophic injury cases and running volume claims.  I have represented clients in claims arising from road traffic accidents, employer's liability, public liability, product liability and travel claims (successfully defending a case for a leading tour operator in one of the leading cases on local standards defences).  I have experience of dealing with periodical payment orders and the arbitration of disputes on policy cover.
I have acted for both insurers and companies in commercial litigation matters in respect of damage to their property on foot of negligence, breach of contract and statutory schemes.  I have expertise in dealing with large business interruption claims for clients in many sectors including renewable energy and technology.
I also have experience of alternative legal services models and the use of legal technology to streamline the claims process and large document reviews.  I am familiar with the processes around eDiscovery and electronic disclosure in large commercial matters.  I have an interest in how to add value to the client through the use of these processes.
Prior to joining Fieldfisher I was a Partner in a large commercial law firm in Belfast specialising in insurance litigation and subsequently headed up a regional disputes team for a global firm in the Alternative Legal Services space.
I am admitted to the roll of solicitors in for both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
