Commercial Litigation


Commercial Litigation has always been one of the key practice areas of the firm. Headed up by senior partners Gerard Walsh and Robert Browne, we have the breadth of knowledge and experience clients need to resolve commercial or personal disputes, be it enforcement of rights or defending rights. Through our association of independent European law firms and links with law firms throughout the world we can assist, on any litigation issues you may have.

This practice area includes:

  • Breach of warranty claims
  • Commercial Property litigation
  • Contract disputes
  • Construction disputes
  • Corporate disputes
  • Defamation
  • Both plaintiff and defence cases, also defamation in social media cases
  • Enforcement or defence of restrictive covenant claims
  • Injunctions
  • Insurance litigation including acting for Insurers in defending claims arising under policies of insurance
  • Partnership litigation
  • Professional negligence
  • Shareholders disputes and oppression or fraud on a minority shareholder
  • Tobacco litigation

We have advised in relation to a large number of cases which created new precedents in Irish law, including the Irish Court’s determination of relevant sections of the Commercial Agency Directive. We represent clients in a multi-million dollar litigation currently before the Commercial Court and involving large-scale eDiscovery. We represent financial institutions in disputes referred to the Financial Services Ombudsman. We have been involved in a successful action against a Member State before the European Court of Human Rights.
