Ian is a Partner in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department at LK Shields.
He has wide-ranging experience in handling disputes on behalf of domestic and international clients relating to general corporate, construction and engineering and financial services matters. He has acted in numerous large-scale and high-profile cases before both the Irish and English courts, having practised in London for almost a decade before re-joining LK Shields.

He has extensive experience in advising insurers on multiparty disputes and complex policy coverage issues. Professional indemnity and product liability claims in the construction sector are a particular specialism.
Ian is member of the Commercial Litigation Association of Ireland, the Society of Construction Law and the British Insurance Law Association.
