Matheson supports publication of unique list
Matheson LLP was pleased to support the publication of the Legal 500 GC Powerlist Ireland Teams 2023 at a special event recently, held to recognise Ireland's best in-house legal teams.
Each year, the Legal 500 GC Powerlist recognises those in-house teams who have performed exceptionally well across a diverse and growing number of industries, and against an increasingly fast-paced and ever-changing business environment. In 2023, the Powerlist recognises in-house teams, rather than individuals, and 125 teams have been included.
Michael Jackson, Managing Partner of Matheson said, "Matheson is delighted to once again support the Legal 500’s GC Powerlist Ireland Teams 2023. Being invited to participate and be included as one of the 125 legal teams listed in the GC Powerlist is one of the foremost recognitions of excellence, and each team should be very proud of their achievements."
"We in Matheson appreciate the work that General Counsel do and the significant contributions they make to their organisations' ability to achieve their objectives. We are privileged to be able to work with GCs across a huge number of industries and our focus is always to be the best partners we can be in helping GCs achieve the objectives they have set for themselves, their teams and their businesses. Congratulations again to each of the 125 teams who have been included on this year’s list. We look forward to celebrating this year’s winners, and to continuing to support future participants."
Elena Lewis, Research Analyst from the GC Powerlist said; "Huge congratulations to everyone here for making it onto our list of the top in-house teams in the country. You are who we at The Legal 500 believe to be the best in-house teams in Ireland, so it’s a real achievement to be on this list, one you should all be proud of. The GC Powerlist series has grown massively in the past few years, and we now cover hundreds of individual jurisdictions in every imaginable region around the globe. You are now part of an elite group of the very best in-house counsel worldwide."
"The Ireland GC Powerlist is one of the highlights of the Powerlist schedule, not just because of the high calibre of the in-house lawyers in Ireland but also for how enthusiastic and engaged everyone is with the process. It is also a special pleasure to highlight the teams in Ireland, and seeing the emphasis on and pride in working together, especially with the ongoing struggles of inflation, supply chain disruptions and the ravages of the pandemic, all of which are mentioned in numerous interviews within the Powerlist."
The event, which was hosted by Matheson in its city-centre offices in Dublin, was also addressed by Davinia Conlon, Country Officer at Citi, who discussed her journey over the past 15 years and the transition from in-house counsel to the business and the synergies between the two roles. She discussed how the challenges faced by in-house counsel over the past year are collective challenges for business leaders and also the role of in-house counsel in helping to tackle those challenges.
