She also has a more general civil practice involving a variety of areas from commercial disputes to intellectual property.

In March 2024, Fionnuala qualified as an Accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator. She received certification from the Society of Mediators, London, having completed her training and assessment to international standards as approved by the Bar Council of England and Wales.
