In November 2011, the team successfully brought a claim for a Garda who was injured during the course of her duties. The Garda attended a home where there was an allegation of domestic violence. The Garda was attacked by a savage dog. The Firm was successfully in a position to argue on behalf of the Garda that the dog was in effect set upon the Garda and thus, the claim came within the confines of the Garda Siochana Compensation Act legislation. Substantial damages were awarded to the Garda in the High Court.
