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. I have experience in Shareholder conflicts, breach of contract,Intellectual Property Disputes and litigation involving property and landlord and tenant matters. As a CEDR accredited mediator, I recognise and support mediation as a real and effective alternative to litigation.

What I offer my clients :

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.

It is with the benefit of years of practical experience in the complex and constantly changing area of Employment Rights that I am uniquely placed to advise employers and employees in relation to what often are difficult circumstances.

I am pragmatic and direct in my approach with all my clients which leads to a more open and successful working relationship

Why I love what I do:

Whether its in giving advice or in solving problems I have always found my work as a solicitor challenging and satisfying especially when very real and effective outcomes can be delivered.

Personal interests:

I am a member of Howth Yacht Club, enjoy playing golf and cycling. Last year I was delighted to complete a week-long transverse of the Pyrenees from Biarritz to Perpignan.
