Matheson was twice “highly commended” in the FT 2014 Innovative Lawyers’ Report as one of Europe’s most innovative law firms in dispute resolution. Matheson was the only Irish law firm commended in the dispute resolution category of the prestigious report this year.
Matheson’s two dispute resolution commendations were for setting a “market precedent for duties and liabilities of trustees in Ireland” in the Element Six case, and for co-ordinating a complex “multi-jurisdictional, multi-party dispute, gaining a favourable settlement for a banking client.”
Matheson was also shortlisted for the award of Europe’s most innovative law firm. The 2014 awards drew more than 500 submissions from over 160 of Europe’s leading law firms. The Financial Times noted that “competition was particularly fierce this year, so to have been shortlisted for an award is a huge achievement.”
