We are tough litigators when we must be, but we are also driven by pragmatic advice, commercial containment of risk and protection of your interests.

Hard fought litigation might be the best approach but, in many cases, alternative dispute resolution can achieve a successful outcome for clients at a much lower cost. Our lawyers are leaders in the development of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and several of our Partners are accredited mediators. We are skilled in resolving disputes through litigation, arbitration, mediation, conciliation, adjudication and expert determination.

Advising on all types of interlocutory relief, our experienced team will effectively represent you in domestic injunctions, Anton Pillar orders, worldwide Mareva injunctions and Quia Timet injunctions, applying the best use of these tools to protect your interests.

As leading experts in Irish public sector specific litigation, we successfully represent clients in many judicial review proceedings and criminal statutory enforcement proceedings.

We have wide-ranging experience in dealing with investigations and have played a significant role in many of the most important regulatory investigations and statutory inquiries in Ireland in recent years.

Our legal technology team assists with effective technological solutions and project management support for document intensive cases - now a major aspect of all litigation, disputes and investigations. These solutions effectively maximise efficiency in relation to document review and data analytics. With our legal and technological resources, we facilitate the fast-tracking of the most complex commercial disputes through Ireland’s Commercial Court.

With expert lawyers in legal, commercial and reputational risk, we devise optimum strategies that focus on our clients’ commercial objectives.
