David Lavelle, former Managing Partner at Augustus Cullen Law, has announced that Michael Boylan, Head of the firm’s Medical Negligence Group, will succeed him as the newly elected Managing Partner in the firm.

During David Lavelle’s tenure as Managing Partner, over a period of 18 years, the firm grew from being a small country practice, to one of Ireland’s leading and most progressive law firms, employing 19 solicitors and more than 43 staff. David has stepped down as Managing Partner in order to focus on expanding his client base and to concentrate on his commitments as a newly elected member of the Law Society of Ireland’s Council. Despite the current economic difficulties David was committed to ensuring the practice grew in size and expertise, whilst at the same time remaining true to the firm’s traditional values.

Michael Boylan, the newly elected Managing Partner, joined the firm in 1986 and has been at the fore front of medical negligence litigation in Ireland for the last 25 years. He has been involved in numerous leading landmark decisions in medical negligence litigation and his reputation amongst his colleagues reflects the expertise and professionalism he has brought to the firm. Michael has been the driving force behind the growth in the medical negligence group in Augustus Cullen Law, which includes within it 8 highly experienced solicitors and another 8 support staff. He is committed to building on this going forward in order to ensure the firm grows from strength to strength.

    Gus Cullen and the firm’s approach to addressing the key issues was professional, yet personal, efficient yet attentive.
