Matheson appoints two new partners

Matheson has appointed two new partners – Niall Collins joins the firm as partner and head of Matheson's EU, competition and regulatory law group, while Karen Sheil has joined as a partner in the commercial real-estate department.

Managing partner Michael Jackson said the growth is reflective of ongoing investment in talent, alongside the expansion of Matheson offices in London and New York, as well as the recent opening of new offices in Cork.

Behavioural competition law

Niall Collins has extensive experience advising Irish and multinational businesses on Irish and EU competition law, particularly on complex merger control mandates. His behavioural competition law practice covers abuse of dominance, cartels and other restrictive arrangements, regulatory investigations, compliance issues and consequential litigation following on from allegations of breach of competition rules.

Syndicate investments

Karen Sheil specialises in all types of property development and investment transactions (both loan and asset based) including syndicate investments using corporate, funds and other structures.

Sheil has worked on some of the largest property transactions in the country including ‘Project Jewel’ – Ireland’s largest real-estate transaction – where she acted for the purchaser of a portfolio of prime retail assets, including Dundrum Town Centre.

She also lectures at the Law Society.
