From 20 June 2011, John Ryan, one of Ireland’s leading international tax advisers and head of Matheson's US offices, will be joined by Alan Keating, senior associate in the firm’s Tax and Structured Finance and Derivatives Groups and Aiden Kelly, senior associate in the firm’s Asset Management and Investment Funds Group. Alan and Aiden will focus on advising many of the world’s leading international companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland.

Matheson is recognised as the leading Irish law firm for international bond issues in results recently issued by international financial publisher, Thomson Reuters, having advised on more international debt issuance transactions than any other Irish law firm. Alan Keating specialises in all aspects of debt capital markets and structured finance transactions.

With more than 20 years’ experience and expertise, and home to 50 world-class fund service providers with a support structure of over 11,000 industry professionals, Ireland is one of the world’s leading fund domiciles and administration centres, servicing assets in 2010 worth over €1.8 trillion in some 10,700 funds. Matheson acts on behalf of clients representing approximately 22% by net asset value of all Irish domiciled funds as at 30 June 2010. Aiden Kelly specialises in all aspects of establishing, structuring, and operating mutual and alternative investment funds in Ireland.

Matheson opened its first office in the US fifteen years ago in Palo Alto, California and is the only Irish law firm with a presence on both the East and West Coasts of the US. The expansion of our New York office makes us the largest Irish law firm in the US.

Liam Quirke, Managing Partner of Matheson said, "The primary focus of our firm is on advising international companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland. The expansion of our New York office represents a major investment by our firm in the services we provide to our international clients and will reinforce our dominance in this key market."
