hello, I’m gerard groarke.
I qualified as a barrister in 2000 and since 2002 have been in private practice in Ireland, working on behalf of a range of individual and corporate clients.
I have a broad practice encompassing everything from commercial property disputes to murder trials. My interest lies in adversarial work (I am an Internationally Accredited Advanced Advocacy Instructor) rather than in any specific field of law. You can read more about my Litigation & ADR work and my teaching of Advanced Advocacy here.
My office uses a range of modern technology to provide legal advice and court documents quickly and efficiently. The legal profession is not known for its embrace of technology and I have achieved a number of ‘firsts’ in technology adoption at the Irish Bar. You can read more about the technology I use here.
In a voluntary capacity I have assisted the Bar Council of Ireland with GDPR Compliance, with Advanced Advocacy training, and with a number of Continuing Professional Development presentations aimed at improving technology competence within the Bar of Ireland. You can learn more about my voluntary work and other interests on my LinkedIn page.
