New lead lawyer at Dechert Dublin office

Global law firm Dechert has a new managing partner at its Dublin office.

Carol Widger will lead the Dublin outpost of Dechert, one of the first international law firms to establish a presence in Ireland, and the first major onshore transatlantic funds practice in Dublin.

A senior financial services specialist, Carol Widger, brings significant expertise, advising funds managers and other firms providing services to investment funds.

She has 20 years’ experience advising on the establishment, launch and ongoing management of all types of investment funds, including UCITS and AIF products.


Carol Widger (pictured) is a former chair of Irish Funds’ Legal Working Group.

Gus Black, global co-chair of Dechert’s financial services group, said that Dublin is an important funds centre.

“Carol’s significant experience will position us for further growth in the Irish funds space and strengthen our global offering,” he said.
