Legal Services

We represent employers, construction professionals, contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers. We seek to act as of counsel and in-house counsel to various SME construction businesses who would not need full time legal support but would benefit from the opportunity to bounce ideas and issues off an experienced construction lawyer. This is particularly true of sub-contractors whose turnover would not warrant the large overheads of an in-house legal team but their practice would require advice on contract and design liability issues.

On international construction projects we can provide legal support as necessary to manage and control the process and complexities of multiple multi-tier construction contracts, bonding, collateral agreements and novation agreements.

In international arbitration we represent claimants and respondents on a worldwide basis. Likewise, with domestic arbitration seated in Ireland, Scotland, London and New York we act as representative and advisor to parties, including solicitors and counsel who require guidance. 

In addition to the above Mark Kane is expert in the ADR procedures employed by the Irish Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) in resolving disputes between landlords, tenants and third parties. Mark Kane is available to serve parties in dispute (landlords and tenants) as Arbitrator under the Arbitration Act 2010 and the Residential Tenancies Act 2004, as amended. Please note that the tenant must at or after the time the dispute arises consent to the dispute being referred to arbitration, per Section 90(1) of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004.

Mark Kane is an academic lawyer and masters graduate in respect of arbitration and construction law in common law jurisdictions.
