McCann FitzGerald Wins Two Awards at Benchmark Litigation Awards 2020

McCann FitzGerald was delighted to win two awards at the Benchmark Litigation Europe Awards this week, including Irish “Dispute Resolution Firm of the Year”.  McCann Fitzgerald Partner, Seán Barton, was also recognised as “Dispute Resolution Lawyer of the Year”.

Seán has been with the firm for nearly 30 years and has advised on many substantial domestic and international commercial disputes. He has also been involved in several expert groups on legal and procedural reform, including on reviewing the implementation of EU measures in Irish court practice.

Barry Devereux, Managing Partner of McCann FitzGerald said:

“This is a fantastic achievement for the firm, and for Seán individually, and is evidence of our market-leading dispute resolution practice. We remain focused on securing successful outcomes for our clients despite the current challenges of Covid-19. These awards showcase not only the talent of our people, but the complexity of the work we are doing and the results we are achieving for clients.”

The firm was also recognised in the “Dispute Resolution Impact Cases of the Year” category for its important role advising the Quinn family litigation.
