Today we are announcing our intention to open in the Republic of Ireland, in Dublin. 

This is the beginning of our execution of intention to open a new office in Ireland, with plans for steady expansion and a new Irish LLP partnership*.  The focus will be on two of our core sectors, tech and life sciences.

Corporate partner James Goold and international co-head of Life Sciences & Healthcare Alison Dennis will divide their attention between London and Dublin for an initial period. We are also currently in discussions with legal experts in the market, with further updates to be provided.

Corporate Partner and Executive Board member James Goold said: “Dublin is a thriving, dynamic city and the surrounding areas of Cork and Galway continue to be recognised as amongst the leading tech and innovation hubs in the world. Our strategic growth plans offer opportunities for us to support international technology and life sciences sector organisations with leading advice that will deliver continued success for their businesses.

Managing Partner Shane Gleghorn, commented: “Our strategy is focused on representing our clients in the major technology and life-science hubs and, therefore, it is a natural step for us to expand into Ireland with that focus in mind.”
