International firm Pinsent Masons has bulked up its partnership cohort with three new hires for its Dublin office.
Bringing the partnership team to seven in total, the trio will strengthen the firm's offering across financial services, real estate, and energy and projects at its Dublin 2 premises.
A global 100 law firm, Pinsent Masons has an all-island offering, with premises in Dublin and Belfast, as well as employing over 3,000 people globally across 25 offices, including over 1,500 lawyers and 400 partners.
Garrett Monaghan, previously of DWF and Arthur Cox, has particular expertise in the development, acquisition and financing of renewables, with extensive energy-trading experience.
Garrett will work with Belfast-based partner Richard Murphy in a market that is undergoing significant regulatory change, as large offshore wind, solar and interconnection projects go into development.
Kevin Collins joins from Eversheds Sutherland and will build out the property and real estate practice in Dublin.
Ann Lalor joins from Whitney Moore as a banking partner with extensive experience in acting for Irish and international banks and financial institutions, mezzanine lenders, private funders and corporate borrowers across real estate and construction, transport, retail, natural resources and energy sectors.
Gayle Bowen (pictured above) of Pinsent Masons' Dublin office said that the hires were a further signal of the firm’s ambitions for Ireland.
“Since our launch, we have quickly gathered momentum. Clients, both in Ireland and internationally, are enthusiastic about our unique approach to legal service delivery, which combines our people, processes and technology to develop bespoke solutions for our clients,” she said.
