New Matheson legal-tech role for graduate

Leading law firm Matheson has appointed law graduate Inari Friedmann to a new role that it describes as the first of its kind in Ireland.

The newly created post is dedicated to innovation and legal technology, and the appointment follows a nationwide graduate-recruitment process.

Friedmann, who grew up in Augsburg in Germany, is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, where she completed her LL.B. and LL.M. in Law before joining Matheson.

She joins the firm as a legal-solutions assistant in its digital-services group, and will spend the next 12 months rotating through the various areas in that division.

120 applications

Kyle Gribben (head of Matheson's digital-services group) said that the firm was committed to the use of legal technology and innovative ways of working for the benefit of its clients.

“Given the growth of our digital-services group, it made sense to start training legal technologists in-house, so we were delighted to have received such a large number of high-quality applications,” he added.

Matheson received more than 120 applications, from recent graduates of universities in Ireland and abroad, from a diverse range of disciplines – including technology, software engineering and business.

Matheson has also welcomed Leslie Okafor, Paul Buckley, Siomha Buckley, and Jessica O'Hanlon, who will join the firm's two-year Business Services Graduate Programme.
