Thursday, 28 March 2024

ByrneWallace LLP has once again been recognised as one of Ireland’s top tier Irish law firms, providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel, following independent research undertaken by leading international directory, Legal 500.

The annual directory provides impartial, third-party opinion on the leading law firms and lawyers in 80 countries across the EMEA region. The rankings are based on the results of extensive research, including detailed qualitative assessment of work conducted by law firms over the past 12 months, experience and depth of teams, specialisms and ancillary services, and, most importantly, client feedback. 

Law firms and their lawyers are ranked based on the strength of their teams, and the consistency of quality of the individuals within them. Amongst the criteria assessed include strong technical ability to deal with the most complex and innovative work; in-depth capability beyond key partners; capacity to handle large transactions as well as complex, innovative deals; commitment to technology and the use of technology to improve client services. 

According to research, ByrneWallace LLP was commended for consistently delivering excellent legal advice and first-class client service. 

A selection of the feedback received from clients who were interviewed included:

Lawyers in the firm were ranked across all key practice areas, and were commended in their fields for being “Leading Individuals”, “Next Generation Partners” and “Rising Stars”.  Two lawyers, Employment Law Partner Michael Kennedy, and Head of Life Sciences Colin Sainsbury received “Hall of Fame” status, an honour awarded to those who are ‘deemed to be the operating at the very top in that practice area – based on workload, peer feedback and length of experience.’
