Ann Lalor named managing partner at Pinsent Masons

Pinsent Masons has appointed Ann Lalor as head of its Dublin office.

Lalor has a track record advising Irish and international banks and financial institutions, mezzanine lenders, private funders, corporate borrowers and investment vehicles in bilateral and syndicated banking transactions.

Managing partner John Cleland said: “Ann is a highly respected member of the global partnership, and her collaborative and innovative approach towards engaging with her clients embodies the unique approach to Irish legal services that Pinsent Masons brings to the market.”

He added that the Dublin office has experienced consistent growth since its launch in 2017.


Ann Lalor said that it was an exciting time in the Dublin office, with several new hires and a comprehensive trainee programme.

“We have made a great start in Ireland and I look forward to further strengthening the office in the years ahead,” she said.

Launched in 2017, the firm’s Dublin office now has a 60-plus team of ten partners and 41 lawyers.

The firm also recently announced the addition of Neil Keenan and Gerry Beausang of ByrneWallace, who will join in early 2022, boosting the partner count to 12.

The firm has achieved double-digit growth in the region, and clients included Sanne, Athora, Enea, Teva, NTR, Amber Infrastructure, BNRG Neoen, SUSI, Obton, and EDF. 

Ann succeeds Gayle Bowen, who steps down after three years in the post to focus on her role as head of the Irish investment-funds practice.
