KPMG’s law arm plans to increase workforce

The head of KPMG Ireland’s legal-services business in Ireland has said that it is aiming to increase its workforce from 60 to 160 within three years.

John Given (small picture) was appointed by the professional-services firm in June as manging partner of KPMG Law Ireland.

He joined the firm from Philip Lee, where he was a senior corporate partner.

Another of the ‘Big Four’ professional-services firms, EY, has also set up its own legal-services division, EY Law Ireland.

New services planned

“KPMG has had legal services for years – and indeed company secretarial services going back to the 1990s,” Given told The Irish Times.

“What’s changed now is that there is now a new law firm regulated by the Law Society that is part of an international network of KPMG law firms in 84 jurisdictions that have well over 3,000 lawyers,” he said.

Given also told the newspaper that the firm would be developing “new services and capabilities” across a range of areas.
