Law firm Eversheds Sutherland has appointed a new partner in its financial-services division in Dublin.
Trevor Dolan is to become a partner and head of asset-management and regulation within the practice group.
Eversheds Sutherland describes Dolan as “a very active, focused, and highly experienced lawyer in investment-fund law, providing Irish financial-services legal advice to Irish and international financial-services providers”.
He has advised fund promoters on structuring, establishing, listing, and maintaining funds in Ireland, with a particular focus on structured UCITS, hedge funds, property, and venture-capital or private-equity funds.
Dolan began his career in the US, where he worked for the local investment banking subsidiaries of ABN AMRO and Société Générale in Chicago.
'Tremendous growth potential'
He later returned to Ireland to help establish Société Générale's fund depository business. Following a period in the Central Bank of Ireland, he joined a top ten Irish law firm. Most recently, he was a partner and head of the financial-services group at LK Shields.
"While the economic environment remains challenging for businesses, financial services is a major area of growth for the national economy and our firm," said Dolan.
Alan Connell (managing partner of Eversheds Sutherland Ireland) said that the financial-services sector offered "tremendous growth potential" for the firm, adding that the sector was experiencing many changes, from digital transformation to the introduction of an individual-accountability regime.
