Child Care Law

With one of the largest Child Care Legal Teams in Ireland, we have specialised knowledge in the area of Child law that distinguishes us from our peers in the industry. We are a uniquely experienced provider of legal services to Tusla – The Child and Family Agency and its predecessors for over 40 years.

Our experienced team members are renowned for their expertise on legislative developments in child protection and welfare, protective measures for vulnerable witnesses, and cyber safety and data protection. We regularly provide training across these areas.

We represent several public bodies and advise on all matters relating to child care, juvenile justice, mental health legislation, assisted decision making and capacity and statutory duties and responsibilities, including many complex and sensitive child protection cases.
