“Covid-19 has provided us with the opportunity to adapt and refocus the way we support and advise our clients. We have invested heavily in training our people, and enhancing our IT infrastructure, and look forward to what will be an exciting and challenging time for our country, industry and firm as we emerge from the pandemic.”

Alison O’Sullivan, HR Partner and partner in the firm’s property practice added, “In 2018, ByrneWallace LLP was the first large Irish law firm to achieve gender parity at partnership level and we have maintained that balance. We have continued to invest in and develop a working environment which supports and encourages our lawyers to excel and thrive in senior positions within the firm regardless of gender.”  

Brennan concluded, “On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to congratulate Triona, Gráinne, Eoin, Daniel, Morag, Fiona and Zelda on this significant milestone in their careers and wish them every success as they take on their new roles.”
