ByrneWallace LLP is to recruit 100 professional staff over the next two years.
Managing partner Feargal Brennan said that the firm is experiencing increased demand for its advisory and transaction services, as well as in areas such as information and data management, cyber-crime, tax, and infrastructural development.
Brennan said that the medium-term plan would see ByrneWallace LLP double in size in the next five years from a current headcount of over 300 to over 600.
The firm has recently agreed terms to remain in its current offices in Dublin’s central business district on Harcourt Street, on the basis that it will need all of its office space to meet its growth plans.
Brennan (pictured) said: “The opportunity to stay or go came at an interesting time. With digitisation and new hybrid working arrangements, law firms will now require less office space than before.
“Our plans for growth can therefore be accommodated within our 50,000-square-foot office we currently occupy on Harcourt Street. Given local city-centre amenities, our belief is that it still makes sense for us to maintain a substantial city-centre office location, and this location will continue to be an asset when it comes to recruiting new staff and serving our clients.”
