Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has appointed corporate partners Neil Keenan (small picture) and Gerry Beausang, who will join the firm’s Dublin office as part of the transactional services group.
They will support clients across the firm’s five key global sectors, with a particular focus on energy, financial services and technology, science and industry.
Both move from ByrneWallace where Keenan currently heads the corporate team and Beausang leads the capital markets team.
They bring combined experience in complex cross-border and domestic transactions including mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments, equity fundraising, corporate re-organisations and restructurings.
Corporate partner Dennis Agnew said the firm had enjoyed strong growth in deal activity and the new hires will enhance its client offering.
