Five join Dublin team at HOMS Solicitors

Holmes O’Malley Sexton Solicitors has welcomed four new lawyers to its Dublin office team at its new premises at 2 Ely Place.

Michael Carrigan, Paul Gough, Caitriona O’Brien and Stephen Cowhey join the team, while senior associate solicitor Pat McInerney has also been redeployed from the firm’s Limerick office to Dublin.

The firm now has eight solicitors based in Dublin: one partner, one consultant, three senior associate solicitors, one associate solicitor, one senior solicitor and one assistant solicitor.

Michael Carrigan joins as a consultant solicitor after retiring from the Eugene F. Collins Solicitors partnership. He specialises in commercial property, professional negligence and dispute resolution.

Mr Gough joins as a senior associate solicitor from Eugene F. Collins Solicitors and advises employers on a variety of employment law and industrial relations issues. He also works on M&A.

Ms O’Brien, joining as a senior solicitor, specialises in medical negligence and personal injury litigation. She represents private clients in the Circuit Court, High Court and Court of Appeal.

Mr Cowhey, joining as assistant solicitor, trained with the firm and recently qualified. Meanwhile, Mr McInerney, senior associate solicitor, specialises in dispute resolution, including defamation, inter-company disputes and complex litigation, and professional negligence matters.

Harry Fehily, managing partner, said: “These additions represent a twofold growth in number of our Dublin office’s team of solicitors since the move to new, larger, custom designed office space at Ely Place.

“These strategic hires are part of a larger organisational renewal being undertaken by HOMS under its strategic plan, ‘HOMS 2020: Getting Ahead of the Curve’.

“These four additions will provide a blend of established experience and dynamic impact and HOMS Solicitors is continuing to expand through internal promotions and effective strategic hires.”
