HOMS Assist Tops the Class at Recent Graduation in Healthcare Law

At HOMS Assist, we invest in our people so we can secure the best outcomes for you. That means ongoing training and commitment to the highest levels of legal knowledge and expertise—something four of our colleagues celebrated recently.

Partners John Ringrose (Cork office) and Piarais Neary (Dublin office), as well as Senior Associates Áine McSweeney and Rachael O’Shaughnessy (both Limerick office), were conferred with diplomas in healthcare law from the Law Society of Ireland. Special congratulations go to John Ringrose, who placed first overall in the class of 2019.

Partner Robert Bourke congratulated the graduates, saying “We are very proud that four members of our Medical Negligence team have achieved the diploma in healthcare law.  HOMS Assist is built upon the ethos of doing what is necessary to protect our clients.  We continually train and invest in our team to ensure that our clients receive best in class legal advice.

Even the most qualified legal professionals need to maintain their skillsets to the highest and most current levels, so we are particularly delighted with these achievements by four of our team members. Healthcare law is a particularly sensitive area and requires an up-to-date set of specific skills to navigate properly, something of which our team is keenly aware.

What These Healthcare Law Qualifications Mean

A comprehensive grasp of healthcare law and practice is vital to ensure the best possible outcomes for clients involved in medical negligence claims, issues relating to medical records and data protection, constitutional rights, and healthcare regulation.

HOMS Assist prides itself on the caliber of its people’s skills and expertise in this area. Thanks to their ongoing commitment to training and skills development, they are uniquely placed to identify and critique recent judicial decisions and legislative changes and assess their implications for legal practice and procedure. As our recent graduates demonstrate, you can rely on our skills and expertise, whatever area of healthcare or medical negligence relates to your particular circumstances.

What You Can Expect

Medical negligence is relatively rare, and, for the most part, medical practitioners demonstrate nothing but total commitment to your care. That does not mean that things always go right, however. If things go wrong, it is natural to be distressed and feel that you have nowhere to turn. Poor medical outcomes do not always mean medical negligence, so you need to know where to go for advice. Our qualified team can help you negotiate your specific legal circumstances.

Establishing medical negligence is a complex process that involves proving that a medical professional failed in a way that no other equally qualified professional performing within the bounds of ordinary care in the same circumstances would have done. This can only be done by an experienced legal professional with a thorough knowledge of healthcare law—something our recent graduates have established they are.

Contact HOMS Assist if you are concerned that your medical care may have been negligent. We will give you advice you can trust.
