Fergal specialises in care and adoption proceedings, including experiences of led cases and acting alone before the High Court and Court of Appeal.

He accepts instructions to represent all parties:

Local authorities

Fergal prepares thoroughly and works collaboratively with professionals. He presents cases fairly yet robustly and drafts case summaries and orders efficiently.

Parents and intervenors

Fergal has a particular interest in contested hearings involving experts; allegations of serious harm/injury, or vulnerable parents who lack capacity. Lay clients at all stages of proceedings can expect a sympathetic approach to instructions and the utmost commitment to achieving the best possible result in court. Conferences in chambers can be facilitated upon request.

Guardians/Children

Fergal applies sound judgment and a fair minded approach to the representation of children. He has a wealth of experience in representing Guardians who oppose local authorities, and of leading evidence from jointly instructed experts. Fergal has also appeared for children who require separate representation.
