Experienced across a range of areas, including workplace injuries, claims arising from RTAs and childhood injuries. Also known for advising on product liability litigation. Maintains offices in both Belfast and Dublin to facilitate cross-border matters.

Work highlights Advised Gallagher Bassett and its insured, Debenhams, on the defence of two personal injury claims brought by a mother and daughter who alleged that, while shopping in a Debenhams store, they had each been injured on the feet and ankles by a defective floorboard which came loose during maintenance. Both claims were ultimately dismissed and costs orders made against the plaintiffs after the judge deemed their evidence to be unreliable.
