The managing partner of Moloney & Co Solicitors of Dublin and Naas has been elected as the new vice-president of the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL).
Liam Moloney is the first Irish lawyer to hold the position.
PEOPIL is one of the largest PI lawyers associations in Europe with over 430 members from 30 jurisdictions within Europe and seven jurisdictions outside Europe.
Its core objectives are to promote greater access to justice for injury victims and to enhance judicial co-operation in all European jurisdictions in the field of PI law.
Moloney’s firm specialises in personal injury, travel-related injury claims, product liability, and medical negligence claims.
Moloney said: “Regretfully, access to justice in many European countries, including Ireland, continues to be eroded for personal-injury victims through unjust reforms."
