Philip Lee names planning and environment partner

Corporate Law Firm of the Year, Philip Lee has announced Leonora Mullett as a partner in its planning and environmental department.

Mullett has extensive knowledge of planning and environmental law, local government law, litigation, dispute resolution and public law with significant experience in representing State sector bodies including An Bord Pleánala, the Housing Agency and the Health Service Executive.

Prior to joining Philip Lee in 2019, Leonora was legal advisor to Dublin City Council for 10 years where she was responsible for local government environmental prosecutions, defence of judicial review proceedings concerning planning and social housing, prosecution of statutory injunctions, defending waste licence statutory appeals, claims management and providing an advisory service to all departments.

Mullett will continue to work alongside partners Rachel Minch and Alice Whittaker who lead the ‘tier one’ planning and environmental practice at Philip Lee, with a particular emphasis on consenting processes and judicial review in this area. 


Rachel Minch SC said: “Leonora’s appointment as a partner recognises her important contribution to the firm. With over 20 years’ experience as a litigation solicitor, her extensive knowledge and experience will further strengthen the team’s first-tier position in the Irish business law market across environment and planning.”
