FOIL Ireland was officially launched on the 4th July 2019. This was the culmination of nearly a year’s worth of research and development in Ireland.
The FOIL Ireland Executive is led by Michael Corrigan of Corrigan & Corrigan supported by Anne Staunton of BLM, Adrian Flynn of DWF, Cormac O’Hanlon of JW O’Donovan and Noel Devins of Kennedys.
With an exclusively defendant focused agenda, FOIL Ireland provides a platform for education and networking in the Ireland market. Although many of the challenges faced by this market are similar to those faced by other jurisdictions, the dynamics of the market are quite different and therefore the division focusses the Ireland market and has clear links into the other divisions of FOIL which is the best way to support defendant insurance lawyers in this market.
I am delighted to welcome lawyers from the Ireland market to FOIL and I will work hard to ensure that we create the best combination of the support and established infrastructure that FOIL offers with a clear and creative focus on this jurisdiction.
Laurence Besemer, FCII CEO of FOIL
