International law firm DAC Beachcroft has bolstered its Dublin office through the hire of a partner-led team.
Corporate partner Sharon McCaffrey and competition partner Joanne Finn have joined the firm, bringing with them a team of two senior associates, one associate and a personal assistant.
The appointments follow the promotion of Niamh McKeever to partner in May this year, to head up the firm’s healthcare group, which provides a full service in the area of medical malpractice.
Sharon acts for Irish and international businesses, across a range of sectors, including renewables, telecoms, infrastructure, health and tourism/hospitality.
Joanne has 20 years’ experience advising in EU and Irish competition and regulatory law, with particular specialisms in trade, healthcare, energy, telecoms, agri-food and aviation.
Lisa Broderick, partner and location head, says: “These strategic hires are an important part of the firm’s long-term commitment to the Irish market. The expansion of our offering to include corporate, EU and competition capabilities is based purely on client demand and need.
“Meanwhile, the next stage of DAC Beachcroft’s strategy to strengthen its presence in Ireland will see the firm move into new Dublin premises in 2020,” says Lisa.
“When our Dublin office opened ten years ago, there was just one lawyer. Now, with over 70 colleagues and ten partners, our growth in the region has been substantial.”
DAC Beachcroft has offices across Britain, Europe, Latin America, North America and Asia-Pacific.
