McCann FitzGerald appoints four new partners

McCann FitzGerald has appointed four new partners:

  • Bébhinn Bollard (commercial litigation),
  • Amy Brick (regulatory and data disputes),
  • Jamie McGee (construction), and
  • Ruairí Stewart (commercial property).

The new appointments bring the total number of partners at the firm to 84.

Bébhinn Bollard has extensive experience acting in complex, high-value and cross border disputes, including civil fraud and asset-tracing claims, general commercial litigation, and statutory investigations for regulated entities.

Her practice also includes advising online platforms on contentious issues arising from user-generated content, the use of artificial intelligence, commercial agreements, jurisdictional issues, and regulatory regimes.

Experienced litigator

Amy Brick is an experienced litigator with expertise in advising on matters with a regulatory, public-law or economic aspect. She has acted for several regulators across various sectors in challenges to regulatory decisions, supervisory and enforcement actions, and in complex investigations.

Amy also specialises in contentious data-protection and privacy matters, particularly those arising under the GDPR, including data-breach claims.

Construction expert

Jamie McGee has extensive sectoral expertise in construction, with a diverse practice that spans residential, commercial, and industrial development, infrastructure, offshore gas facilities decommissioning, social housing, hotels, offices, pharma, energy and process facilities.

He lectures on Trinity College’s Diploma in Construction Law and the Law Society’s Diploma in Construction Law course.

Jamie also sits on the Health and Safety Lawyers Association of Ireland Committee.

Commercial real estate

Ruairí Stewart specialises in commercial real-estate transactions, advising a diverse client base spanning institutional investors, developers, lenders, semi-states, and private corporates.

Ruairí’s experience spans acquisitions, disposals, lettings, and asset management mandates through to more bespoke forward-commit structures and site assembly and development work.

He has recently led on several high-profile PRS, social housing and student accommodation transactions and has in-depth experience in advising on property-backed loan sale deals.

Managing partner Stephen Holst said that the firm was delighted to strengthen its leadership team with the appointments.

“Each has unrivalled expertise and experience in their fields, and have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to their clients to help them achieve their goals – however quickly they shift. I wish them continued success in their new roles,” he said.
