Expertise

Consistently recognized as one of Ireland’s leading corporate law firms, our practice encompasses all aspects of corporate law. Our corporate lawyers will guide you through every stage of the company life cycle (whether private or public), ensuring you meet all of the legal and regulatory requirements relevant to you. We provide general company and compliance advice to our corporate clients on the legal issues which most regularly impact their businesses. As a team we pride ourselves in delivering clear and concise legal advice in a commercial context.

With the increasing focus on boardroom decisions, both at a regulatory and grassroots level, we offer pragmatic solutions for directors and shareholders in navigating the ever changing risk landscape in which international and domestic businesses operate. We can help businesses feel more confident in their ability to manage their reputation through advice and insights into good corporate culture, effective corporate risk and crisis management, and a sound understanding of the political, regulatory and legal environment. We have wide-ranging experience advising boards of many of the leading domestic and multinational corporations across all sectors – both listed and unlisted - on corporate governance, compliance and applicable laws and regulations. Good corporate governance is integral to the success of every business and an area of particular focus for the institutional investor community. We see it as central to our role as trusted advisers to help our clients meet the highest standards of governance. We know that every company will have a different structure and therefore different needs so we never commoditise our advice. Our cross departmental approach to risk management helps boards to navigate an increasingly complex risk landscape and we deliver consistent high quality advice and support to our clients.

We have extensive experience advising many of the leading domestic and multi-national corporations across all sectors. We also have wide-ranging experience advising in relation to company law issues and other legal and regulatory requirements for private and public companies, institutional investors, private equity investors, board members and others.

We offer a well-established company secretarial service for private entities and will help oversee good corporate governance and compliance with Irish company law. Our dedicated company secretary professionals, alongside our corporate lawyers, provide cost-effective and comprehensive solutions on a wide range of corporate governance needs. We believe in awareness and a proactive approach to notifying clients of impending changes in Irish and EU law.  We actively monitor developments to ensure our clients are informed well in advance of changes being introduced.
