About Niall

  • Biography

    Niall joined DAC Beachcroft in 2015 from a US based law firm in London. He trained in a Dublin law firm where he gained experience in a number of practice areas including regulatory and administrative law and regulatory crime before moving to London to gain further experience in regulatory and administrative law.

    Niall advises clients across a range of regulated sectors including insurance, healthcare, financial and legal to name but a few. He has experience in inspections, investigations and enquiries from professional practice, regulatory investigations and criminal perspectives. He represents clients in regulatory, fitness to practise and criminal prosecutions from the initial interview stage with the prosecuting authority through to regulatory hearings and court.

    Prior to training as a solicitor he worked as a parliamentary assistant in the Houses of the Oireachtas (Irish Parliament) where he gained invaluable insight into the legislative process as well as obtaining experience across both public and regulatory law in Ireland.
