My practice focuses on complex contentious intellectual property and technology matters, and domestic and international commercial disputes. I also have extensive experience in regulatory disputes and investigations, product liability, and judicial review. I have a particular focus on the life sciences and technology sectors. I have acted in some of the leading intellectual property, technology and commercial disputes in Ireland and have extensive experience advising on Irish Commercial Court litigation, and ADR.
I advise on a wide range of litigation and regulatory matters involving patents, trade marks, copyright, designs, trade secrets and confidential information, often involving additional issues such as intermediary liability, data protection, competition and consumer law claims. I have also advised on leading Commercial Court cases and alternative dispute resolution processes in many sectors, in particular life sciences and technology. I thrive on helping clients to navigate the Irish Courts, particularly in the context of a complex multi-jurisdictional mandate, and to collaborate with others and find the right solution for matter in question.
I also have extensive experience analysing clients’ obligations and determining actions to be taken under product laws, both in the context of bringing products to market, and addressing unforeseen circumstances such as defects and recalls. I regularly advise clients in relation to the regulation of medicinal products and medical devices in Ireland and have built up a strong expertise in navigating clients through interactions with regulators, as well as the regulatory impacts of commercial transactions.
