“Courage is the most important attribute of a lawyer. It is more important than competence or vision. It can never be an elective in any law school. It can never be de-limited, dated or outworn, and it should pervade the heart, the halls of justice and the chambers of the mind.”

Robert F. Kennedy, Speech at University of San Francisco Law School

Burns Nowlan LLP – We litigate on behalf of clients and we are successful. Our results show it. We care deeply about our clients and have no affiliations with financial institutions, State organisations, Insurance companies or multinationals.

We are committed to acting on your behalf and have a track record of success in a variety of complex civil cases and a reputation for excellence in Circuit Court, High Court and Supreme Court cases.

We have established significant case law precedents in being the first firm to establish the right of prisoners to compensation for injuries [Creighton], clarifying the law at Supreme Court level relating to the right of claimants to amend pleadings [Moorehouse] and having the law on bullying and harassment clarified in the High Court, Court of Appeal and ultimately in the Supreme Court before a seven person sitting of Supreme Court Judges. [Ruffley – December 2016]

In addition we also successfully represented our client in a case in the Commercial High Court
which clarified the law relating to the powers of the Director of Corporate Enforcement to restrict certain parties from acting as Directors in limited
companies [ McDonald – 2016 ]
