Breccia, a company linked to businessman Larry Goodman, is understood to be seeking legal costs of up to €5m following its marathon High Court litigation with Dr Joseph Sheehan, a co-founder of Dublin's Blackrock Clinic.

The case, initiated in 2014, concerned the ultimate control of the clinic. Goodman secured majority control of Blackrock Clinic earlier this year after acquiring Dr Sheehan's 28pc stake from a receiver.

Last week, Mr Justice Michael Quinn dismissed several claims made by Dr Sheehan. They included that Breccia had conspired with another clinic co-founder, Dr George Duffy, and others to damage Dr Sheehan's interests regarding his acquisition of loans made to buy shares in the clinic.
