Brian is a solicitor in the litigation team at Carson McDowell, having joined from another highly reputable commercial practice Belfast city centre firm in April 2019.

He has brought with him a wealth of knowledge in litigation and dispute resolution, particularly real estate litigation, on which he advises a broad range of private and public clients and for both landlords and tenants.

Brian also has extensive experience advising clients on issues such as company/partnership disputes, breach of contract, insolvency and public law.

This knowledge and experience allows Brian to provide effective and commercially-minded advice to clients in a calm and efficient manner and has consequently allowed him to utilise a variety of means to resolve cases, alongside contested hearings, by embracing alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration.

Brian’s expertise was recognised in October 2018 when he was selected by The Times to be their UK ‘Lawyer of the Week’, after he successfully defended a client in a high-profile public law and discrimination case which ran through the various courts in the jurisdiction and was finally determined by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.

He obtained his law degree from Queen’s University, Belfast in 2008 and was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in 2010 after completing his studies at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies.

Brian is a qualified solicitor advocate having obtained the qualification in September 2014.
