Therefore, I am delighted to welcome Mark, Shaun and Kieran to our experienced team.
“We are building a team that has expertise in key areas in relation to litigation and dispute resolution and Mark and Shaun bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge dealing with commercial and international litigation.”
