Ireland > Insurance

Eversheds Sutherland‘s insurance practice has expanded and evolved significantly in the last two years, now considerably broader than its traditional focus on claims handling. Advisory, compliance, and risk and litigation cost mitigation form a major part of its outlook today. It has landed a series of big-ticket financial services regulatory engagements, large-scale professional negligence matters in financial services and healthcare, D&O claims, personal injury cases, and financial lines disputes. Aisling Gannon is key in insurance cases for healthcare providers and clinical staff. Stephen Barry is also rated for financial lines and professional negligence cases, as is Pamela O’Neill for regulatory disputes and investigations. Dermot McEvoy is hugely experienced in insurance claims in the real estate and construction sectors.

Ireland > Construction

Eversheds Sutherland leverages its international network of offices to advise on complex, multi-jurisdictional construction projects. In addition to advising on residential and commercial developments, the team is also active in fast-growing sectors such as data centres. The construction practice frequently works alongside the firm’s other teams, such as banking and real estate, to provide comprehensive advice on project development. Construction disputes also form a key part of the practice, with Dermot McEvoy leading in this area and acting for developers and contractors. McEvoy co-heads the team with Mark Varian, who specialises in non-contentious work. Conall McLoughlin is another name to note in the team and provides advice across the lifecycle of projects.
