Philip Lee names four new partners

Law firm Philip Lee has appointed four new partners, amid what it describes as “a period of continuing growth”.

The four new partners are:

  • Laura Mullen (projects and construction),
  • Cian Moriarty (employment),
  • Brendan O’Connor (real estate), and
  • Hugo Grattirola (M&A and corporate transactions, technology and privacy).

“Each of these new partners has been with the firm for most or all of their career, and has thrived within their practice area,” said Philip Lee managing partner Jonathan Kelly.

New partners

Mullen works in a range of practice areas – including PPP (public-private partnership) projects, construction, public-procurement law, and procurement litigation. She has advised on some of the most significant infrastructure developments in Ireland over recent years.

O’Connor represents institutional investors, developers, lenders, semi-state bodies, private companies, and individuals in all areas of commercial and residential property.

Grattirola has experience in advising clients on mergers and acquisitions, private-equity and venture-capital deals, and company re-organisations. He also specialises in technology matters, such as artificial intelligence and data protection, and has a dual French and Irish qualification.

Moriarty has acted for a large number of employers and employees, in both the private and public sectors, on employment-law matters, and also advises on immigration.

He is the vice-chair of the Law Society’s Guidance and Ethics Committee and regularly lectures at the Law Society.
