ByrneWallace makes key property appointments

Law firm ByrneWallace LLP has appointed its outgoing head of property, Michael Walsh, as chair of the firm’s property group.

Alison O’Sullivan, who has been a partner in the firm since 2012, will take over from him as head of a 50-strong property team.

Walsh has more than 20 years of partner-level experience, and has led ByrneWallace’s property division since 2011. He is also the current chair of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Committee.


Walsh said that the firm had experienced a sustained period of growth.

“Our client base has transformed and is dominated by public-sector and institutional clients, many of them international, ranging from global investment platforms to sovereign wealth funds,” he stated.

ByrneWallace’s managing partner Feargal Brennan said: “Both Michael and Alison have worked closely together for almost 15 years, and I am confident that this expanded leadership team will reinforce the strength of our service and property offering to our clients.”
