Johan, a native of Galway, is a solicitor in the firm’s Medical Negligence Department. Johan’s interest in this area stems from his having Erb’s Palsy. Johan’s father litigated successfully on his behalf against the Western Health Board in December 1996. In 1998, Johan’s mother founded the Erb’s Palsy Association of Ireland. Johan remains a committee member and speaker with the charity.
It was this interest in medical negligence that lead Johan to apply for a trainee position with Callan Tansey Solicitors, given its nationwide reputation for excellence in the field.
In his time with Callan Tansey Solicitors, he has worked on interesting and complex cases of cerebral palsy, birth injury, delay in cancer diagnosis, fatal injuries, surgical error, and orthopaedics that have been the subject of inquests, High Court trials and settlement negotiations. He was afforded a high degree of autonomy and responsibility in assisting Associates and Partners bringing matters to a close.
Johan has also gained a wealth of experience in commercial litigation, employment law and personal injuries litigation during his time with the firm.
Johan was educated at St. Annin’s N.S., Kilannin, Galway, St. Joseph’s Patrician College (“The Bish”), Galway and N.U.I. Galway from which he graduated with an honours degree in both Corporate Law (B Corp. Law) and Bachelor of Laws.
