Arbitration and Mediation

Our experienced arbitration and mediation team works with domestic and international clients to find the most practical and commercial solutions to their disputes. Our lawyers apply their in-depth knowledge and proven skills to deliver results in all types of alternative dispute resolution.

We advise on all aspects of arbitration under the Arbitration Act 2010, which adopts the UNCITRAL Model Law for arbitrations in Ireland – including international commercial arbitrations.

Conscious of time and cost factors for clients we have resolved many disputes by mediation. Where suitable to a client’s need we will recommend mediation. Our lawyers are experienced in the nuances of successful mediation.

We provide accredited mediation services and are committed to developing best practice in mediation. One of the team’s lead partners is a CEDR accredited mediator.

Our experience includes:

  • Acting for a major international telecommunications company in proceedings before the Commercial Court to enforce an Austrian arbitration award of almost €280m. The application for enforcement of a foreign arbitral award under the Arbitration Act 2010 was the first of its kind in Ireland.
  • Acting for various parties in arbitration proceedings arising from building disputes.
  • Acting for insurers in arbitration proceedings relating to coverage disputes.
