Defence Insurance Litigation

Johnsons is one of the leading Irish defence litigation practices and the first litigation practice to have offices in both Belfast and Dublin offering a one stop all-Ireland cross border service to mainland based insurers and private clients with litigation exposure in both Irish jurisdictions. Johnsons has a wealth of defence litigation experience with many partners practicing exclusively in the defence of personal injury and product liability litigation in both the High Court and County Court assisted by teams of fully qualified solicitors. We are a niche department providing a commitment to high quality and cost effective legal services across all disciplines to include employers’ liability, public liability, product liability, motor and commercial litigation and have the privilege of acting on the panel of most of Ireland’s leading general insurance providers.

Within the Litigation Department, we have a number of specialised units covering large loss, credit hire, fraud and professional negligence. We are in the unique position of having a nationally respected Media Department, allowing us to provide insurers and policy holders with advice and representation on reputation management issues which often arise in the wake of highly publicised litigation.

Our team is top ranked in Chambers and Partners legal directory for defence litigation with a number of our Partners identified as leaders in their field. “They are forward thinking, operating with the utmost integrity at all times” (Chambers 2012). In the 2015 Edition we are described as "a force to be reckoned with" and “innovative” and remain a driving force in the insurance defence market across the island of Ireland.
