Our London Office
At Matheson, we are committed to having a strong presence where our clients are located. Many of our clients, which include more than half of the world’s 50 largest banks and the majority of the Fortune 100 companies, have business operations in the UK and engage their Irish legal services through the international legal services market in London. Matheson’s London office plays an important role in meeting the Irish legal needs of these companies and financial institutions, and their advisers.
Ireland has longstanding and close ties to the UK, going well beyond a common language and time zone, and a comparable legal system. Working closely with our UK-based clients doing business in Ireland, and our UK legal colleagues, on cross-border transactions is of key importance to Matheson. With increasing demand for Irish legal services from UK-based financial institutions and corporates, the firm’s London team plays an essential role in managing UK-based relationships and in facilitating client access to the wide range of cross-sectoral Irish legal services provided by Matheson.
In preparing for Brexit, we believe in close co-operation and assistance between Ireland and the UK. In 2016 Matheson formed a dedicated Brexit Advisory Group comprising of some of the firm’s senior and specialist colleagues. The Group provide advise and assist clients on the implementation of their Brexit plans.
As Matheson celebrates over 30 years in London, we are growing and strengthening our UK presence. Senior partner and Head of Matheson’s Brexit Group, Sharon Daly has relocated from Dublin to London to lead the Matheson London office.
