High Court Appeals

  • A Finding of the Financial Service Ombudsman is legally binding on both parties, subject only to appeal by either party to the High Court. A party has 21 calendar days from the date of the Financial Service’s Ombudsman's Finding in which to appeal to the High Court. It is open to the High Court to extend the period of an appeal, if it considers in its discretion that it should do.
  • Either party wanting to appeal against a Finding of the Financial Service Ombudsman may wish to retain the services of a legal firm; alternatively, contact can be made with the Central Office of the High Court, Four Courts, Dublin 7.
