Matheson has won two awards in Finance Dublin’s Deals of the Year Awards 2015. The awards were given for transactions led by our Banking and Financial Institutions Groups.

The first winning deal is in the Loans & Financing category – Public Bodies/PPPs for BAM Schools Bundle 4. Banking partner Peter O’Brien said, “It was a privilege to advise the lenders, AlB and KfW-Ipex Bank, on all Irish law aspects of this deal.  The fact that the transaction was debt-financed by both a German bank as well as an Irish 'pillar' bank illustrates the strength of our recovery in the banking market.”

The second winning deal falls under the Financial Services – Investment Funds category for Clearstream’s acquisition of Citco’s Cork operations. Commenting on this deal, Financial Institutions partner Tim Scanlon said, “We were very pleased to advise Clearstream on its acquisition of Citco’s Financial Institution Hedge Fund custody processing business based in Cork. The deal represents another vote of confidence in Ireland as one of the largest global centres for hedge fund administration.”

These awards further reinforce Matheson’s focus on identifying and supporting the Irish legal needs of international companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland.
