Specialist law firm Beale & Co has announced the promotion of insurance defence lawyer Seán O’Halloran to associate in its Dublin office.
Mr O’Halloran, who joined the firm’s employer liability and public liability team last October, specialises in insurance defence work for both insurers and self-insured commercial clients.
He advises clients on a wide range of insurance matters including employers’ liability, public liability, employment law, data security, GDPR obligations and, more recently, the Consumer Insurance Contracts Act 2019.
He has practical experience in all aspects of the litigation process in areas such as personal injury, bullying and harassment/stress, medical negligence, employers’ liability, public liability, and contract and debt recovery claims at both District, Circuit and High Court levels, particularly in the Southern Circuit.
Mr O’Halloran also advises on all aspects of the employment relationship and has considerable representation in contentious employment matters representing clients before the Workplace Relations Commission and the Labour Court.
He has built specialist expertise in data protection and privacy issues and has experience advising companies on their data protection/GDPR obligations.
Tara Cosgrove, managing partner of the Dublin office, told Irish Legal News: “Seán has been a fantastic addition to the firm and we wish him all the best for his continued career with Beale & Co.”
