Sharon Daly heads the commercial litigation insurance team which is described by The Legal 500 as "second to none" with Sharon being personally commended for her ability to respond creatively to complex issues.
Sharon and her team have been involved in some of the most significant commercial litigation before the Irish courts in the last 10 years, including defending a major financial institution in a multibillion-dollar, multi-jurisdictional dispute arising from investment in Bernard L Madoff’s business. Sharon also acted for insurers in the largest property damage dispute to come before the Irish courts in relation to the liability of hydroelectrical dams and flood damage arising therefrom.
Sharon and her team advise a wide range of clients on insurance issues including policy holdings, coverage, policy disputes and defence of large complex claims. Sharon and her team also advise on regulatory issues for insurers and support commercial transactions for insurers buying and selling their businesses.
As a member of Matheson’s Brexit advisory group and a council member of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, Sharon is working with the government and other key stakeholders to encourage UK-based multinationals to relocate to Dublin in order to facilitate the growth of Dublin as a leading global business centre, building on Brexit and beyond.
The 2016 edition of Chambers Europe states: Sharon Daly is deeply respected for her vast expertise in the Irish insurance sector, with a focus on contentious insurance work, in particular high-value policy interpretation disputes.” The guide adds: “Clients say Sharon Daly ‘always has an end game and sees the best route to minimise our exposure’.”
WWL says: Sharon Daly is "a fantastic litigator", recognised for her excellent work on high-value and complex cases.
