    Current highlights of Clíodhna’s practice include:

    • Acting for Royal Mail and British Telecom, lead claimants in the Trucks cartel litigation arising from the European Commission “Trucks” settlement decision, in which truck manufacturers were collectively fined €2.93bn for breaches of EU competition law.

    She is a graduate of University College Dublin and of Harvard Law School, where she specialised in public and comparative constitutional law. Prior to qualifying as a barrister Clíodhna worked as a legal fellow at a non-profit organisation and as a paralegal at a leading full-service Irish law firm.
