William Fry has appointed Liam McCabe as its new chairman. Liam is currently head of William Fry’s projects department and succeeds John Larkin, who has held the role since October 2016.
Liam, a partner at William Fry since 2000, specialises in the structuring of complex projects across all sectors and has played a significant role in many of the largest capital projects undertaken in Ireland.
Managing partner Bryan Bourke said “I welcome Liam’s election to the role of Chairman. Liam served as a member of our firm’s Executive Committee for several years, and has long held senior leadership roles in our firm.
“In his new position, Liam will provide the firm with the benefit of his extensive experience and great energy, and I will work closely with him as we look towards 2020 and beyond.”
Liam will maintain his client work and will continue to lead William Fry’s projects department. John Larkin will remain as one of the law firm’s senior partners and head of the insurance and reinsurance department.
