Ireland > Dispute resolution Tier 4

Browne Jacobson Ireland LLP has made an impression in regulatory investigations and follow-on damages actions stemming from decisions taken by antitrust and data regulators; it acted for Scania in multi-party competition damages claims against truck manufacturers before the Irish Courts. Construction disputes are another forte for the team. Ciarán Markey and Darragh Killeen have driven forward the practice, since joining the firm from LK Shields Solicitors LLP in July 2022; Killeen was subsequently promoted to partner in July 2023.
