Arran Dowling-Hussey

Barrister, Mediator and Arbitrator


Arran Dowling-Hussey has 14 years’ experience as a commercial Barrister.

Arran has been in full time practice as a Barrister in Dublin since 2003. He has also been called to the Bar in Belfast and London and has been associated with a number of chambers in the London area since 2007. As he is admitted in three jurisdictions he has often been briefed in cases that have a multi-jurisdictional element to them including but not limited to offering advices on which is the proper forum for any dispute. Arran is noted for his experience in construction and ADR related work and also has significant experience in commercial, employment, landlord and tenant cases and professional negligence disputes.

In Arran's own words...

“I am keen to help clients resolve their problems as quickly and expeditiously as possible and where appropriate draw on a heavy background in Alternative Dispute Resolution. However, each dispute has to be considered on its own merits and the resolution of some disputes will be best served by traditional litigation. It is important to me to work to deadlines that well meet the needs of clients and to be clear as to the legal costs that clients are exposed to as a dispute progresses.”
