Declan qualified through Queen’s University, Belfast. He has worked with Carson McDowell since qualifying in 1995.

Declan has developed a strong client base in both the public and private sectors, he has led the dispute resolution team in Carson McDowell for over 5 years and during that time the team has grown significantly. The team is recognised in a number of sections of the leading guides on the legal profession as being at the forefront of the niche practice areas covered by the department.

In the Chambers and Partners UK Guide 2020, sources describe him as "diligent and commercial," and a "very good litigator who comes at cases with a commercial approach." One client commented: "He's very effective as a partner liaison and manages the relationship very well. He's also a vastly experienced, hugely effective litigator with an impressive list of contacts."

Interviewees commend his knowledge of the market and describe Declan as "a very strong lawyer who is pragmatic and sensible to deal with." Another client enthuses: "He has the ability to distil very complicated commercial disputes down to key points, which helps us make decisions."
