Brief overview of my career:
During my 30 years with Lavelle, I have established a significant reputation for my expertise in the areas of litigation, dispute resolution and employment Law. As a result, I am regularly sought after to deal with a wide range of commercial and private disputes.
My track record of successful dispute resolution spans the High Court, Court, Circuit as well as the Workplace Relations Commission. I also have extensive experience of Arbitration and Mediation. The thing that I find most satisfying about my work is the variety of people I get to meet, and the challenge of delivering a successful outcome for them.
As head of the Lavelle’s Employment and Pension Law Team, I am an experienced practitioner at the WRC, and the Labour Court where I represent both employers and employees in the wide range of employment matters.
My work in litigation is varied and has included a wide range of Private client and commercial disputes.

As a CEDR accredited mediator, I recognise and support mediation as a real and effective alternative to litigation.
