William Fry partner moves across to Pinsent Masons

Pinsent Masons has appointed Naoise Harnett to its Dublin office where he will be joining as a corporate financial services partner in the summer.

This follows the appointment of Niall Campbell who joined last month as senior associate in the same practice area.


Naoise Harnett moves across from William Fry, where he is a partner in the insurance and reinsurance department. 

He has extensive experience in insurance law, both non-life and life, advising non-captive and captive clients.

He has particular expertise in the sale and purchase of (re)insurance companies, (re)insurance portfolio transfers, Solvency II compliant capital, outsourcing, the set up and authorisation of (re)insurers, captive (re)insurance and the authorisation and regulation of insurance intermediaries.

Alexis Roberts, head of financial services, at Pinsent Masons said:

"Naoise's appointment significantly strengthens our financial services offering in Dublin at a critical time, given the Brexit-driven relocation of key elements of clients' insurance businesses to Ireland.

“We have seen the demand for insurance law specialists in Dublin growing exponentially over the last year and Naoise will play a crucial role in meeting that demand."
