Matheson services the legal needs of internationally focused companies and financial institutions doing business in and from Ireland. Our clients include over half of the world’s 50 largest banks, 7 of the world’s 10 largest asset managers, 7 of the top 10 global technology brands and we have advised the majority of the Fortune 100.

Our expertise is spread across more than 30 practice groups, including Finance and Capital Markets, Corporate, International Business, Mergers and Acquisitions, Technology and Innovation, Intellectual Property, Insolvency and Corporate Restructuring, EU and Competition, Asset Management and Investment Funds, Employment, Pensions and Benefits, Commercial Real Estate, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Healthcare, Insurance, Tax, Private Client, Energy and Infrastructure, FinTech and Life Sciences. We work collaboratively across all areas, reinforcing a client first ethos among our people, and our broad and interconnected spread of industry and sectoral expertise allows us to provide the full range of legal advice and services to our clients.

At Matheson, we have always been committed to having a strong presence where our clients are located. We were the first European law firm to establish a presence in Silicon Valley (in 1996) and, together with our offices in New York, Palo Alto and San Francisco, our five partner-led offices demonstrate our commitment to client service and responsiveness to the needs of our clients - wherever they are located. Our standards of client care have been built on the implementation of a clear client-focused strategy; a commitment to legal excellence; and the calibre of our legal and business support professionals. Our core values of partnership, respect, innovation, diversity and entrepreneurship characterise our collective dynamic as a firm, and push us to achieve the highest standards as legal professionals and advisers to our clients.
