We are delighted to report that the Beale & Co team in Dublin have been ranked in Band 2 for their Insurance Dispute Resolution expertise in the latest edition of Chambers Europe, a leading independently researched legal directory. 

Following interviews with clients and industry peers we have been ranked among some of the best firms in Ireland.  The top firms are selected based on qualities such as technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence and commitment.

Chambers describe the team in Dublin as a "Remarkable contentious disputes boutique with strengths across professional indemnity claims, including construction liability, public liability and employers' liability."

Clients, who are contacted by Chambers to provide anonymous feedback as part of the research process describe the team as "very proactive and focused on the best resolution of the case" and that "they have never let me down on drilling through the information to get to the nub of the issue and setting out a strategy".

Two of our partners have been ranked individually for their expertise in the practice area.  Practice head, Tara Cosgrove, is ranked in Band 2 and "has notable experience representing professional and indemnity insurers across the legal, architecture, financial and engineering industries" and is described as "very good on the regulatory side".

Niamh Loughran, who has been ranked in Band 3, "advises professional defendants on public liability, employers' liability as well as construction liability disputes" and "explains the issues and legal principles in very simple terms." She is also a "very strong negotiator".

A significant part of the research process for these rankings is testimony and feedback from our clients who give their time to respond to the researchers.  We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part.
