International law firm Addleshaw Goddard LLP has launched a new practice covering financial services and regulation at its Dublin office.
The firm has recruited partner Jeanne-Marie Moriarty to lead the team, which it says will support clients operating within “a rapidly changing” regulatory environment.
Moriarty joins the firm from Dublin-based law firm Beauchamps LLP, where she was a partner in financial services and regulation.
A qualified barrister and solicitor, she specialises in the implementation, application and governance of complex regulatory change initiatives within the financial-services sector.
She also has significant in-house experience from previous roles at Bank of Ireland and Aon Consulting.
Addleshaw Goddard says that the new practice area, which will be supported by the firm’s equivalent teams covering the UK and Europe, “significantly enhances” its expertise advising businesses in Ireland on the impact of evolving legislation, regulation, and market frameworks.
"Establishing a financial-services-and-regulation practice in Dublin represents the evolution of the firm as we continue in our commitment to expanding and enhancing our offering within the financial-services sector,” said Mark Walsh (head of Ireland, Addleshaw Goddard).
In addition to the Dublin expansion, Addleshaw Goddard has also recently boosted its regulatory teams across the UK and Europe, with new hires in London, Paris, and Frankfurt.
