Located in the heart of Dublin, our Irish office has developed significantly since it was established 15 years ago to service the needs of professions and insurers throughout the Republic of Ireland, the UK and internationally.

Our specialist, high quality Irish insurance practice of 16 lawyers comprises one of the larger contentious insurance and professional negligence teams in Ireland providing effective advice on insurance, professional indemnity, coverage and policy matters.  Acting for insurers and their insureds our lawyers defend claims against a wide range of professions including engineers, architects, planning consultants, surveyors, valuers, contractors, brokers, solicitors, barristers, accountants and financial advisors.  A comprehensive claims handling offering supports and bolsters sector expertise, attention to professionalism and in depth technical knowledge are key to the practice’s focus on developing and maintaining lasting relationships.

The team are market leaders for their work with engineers, architects and surveyors and now act for most of the top twenty Irish, UK and international engineering consultancies, carrying out project work in Ireland and providing advice to construction professionals both in Ireland and abroad.  Providing disputes resolution and insurance expertise to their clients, they are at the forefront of championing mediation and other non-traditional forms of dispute resolution to achieve cost effective and timely solutions.  The non-contentious offering covers all advice on construction contracts, professional appointments, collateral warranties and health and safety.  Long standing relationships with the main professional bodies including the Association of Consulting Engineers in Ireland; Engineers Ireland and Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland give depth to our sector knowledge and understanding of the industry’s needs. Reflecting this was the team’s recent advice to the Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland on the new Draft Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2013.

In addition to our professional indemnity focus, many of our lawyers have significant experience in other areas of insurance, including product liability, Marine and Aviation, property claims and Directors & Officers liability.
