Commenting on the Award, Managing Partner Feargal Brennan said, “ByrneWallace is honoured to be recognised, for the third consecutive year, as top legal advisor to the public sector. 

“The public sector is one of the Firm’s most significant practice areas, and we place huge value on the depth of the knowledge and relationships which we have built up with our many and diverse public sector clients over the many years that we have worked together.

“We have a strong culture of excellence and accountability, which we believe resonates with our public sector clients. We invest substantial resources to ensure that we provide the highest standard of service, insights and advice to meet, anticipate and exceed their evolving needs.”

“We also ensure that we consistently deliver actual value and benefit to our public sector clients, both through the type of services and advice we provide, and the way we deliver them,” explains Michelle Ní Longáin, Employment Law Partner and Head of the ByrneWallace Public Sector Group. “We work in partnership with our public sector clients, providing expert, accessible, practical and proactive advices to ensure those working within the sector achieve their strategic goals and deliver upon their wide range of responsibilities.”

Looking to the future Ní Longáin comments: “We expect a number of key growth areas over the coming years including advice to Universities on forthcoming legislative developments and their performance and governance of all of their functions, advice to public bodies on decision-making in the context of judicial review, fair procedures and constitutional law, the development of the law on freedom of information and data protection, the interaction between redress before the courts and statutory bodies, reputation management and risk advisory services, complex projects within the law, the provision of social housing, funding, policy and process development and legislative amendment.’’

Brennan adds, “With more than two thirds of our lawyers experienced in advising this sector, we have the right people to give the right advice to our clients at the right time. Due to our in-depth expertise and full-service offering, ByrneWallace is proud to have the capacity to anticipate and meet the needs of our public sector clients for skilled, insightful and timely advice and representation across all legal disciplines.”
