Tuesday, 05 February 2019

ByrneWallace is pleased to announce that the firm has been awarded top honours at The Excellence in Business Awards as Ireland's Law Firm of the Year 2018 to the Public Sector for the second consecutive year.

Presented annually by Public Sector Magazine, The Excellence in Business Awards are awarded to companies and organisations who can demonstrate outstanding service, continuity, track record and general excellence in business to the Public Sector, Irish Companies, and to the people of Ireland.

Commenting on the Awards, Managing Partner Feargal Brennan said, ”ByrneWallace is honoured to be recognised, for the second consecutive year, as top legal adviser to the public sector.

“We have a very long history, spanning over 40 years, providing legal services support and specialist advice to this sector. During this time we have gained extensive experience advising a considerable number of public sector bodies. 

“Our deep expertise means that we can offer tailored advice to meet the diverse needs of the sector, whether in respect of day-to-day operations, or strategic and complex matters, and our lawyers work collaboratively across multiple practice areas to provide a seamless and fully integrated service, advising across all areas of law - from employment and industrial relations to corporate; regulatory and compliance to litigation and investigations; data protection, FOI and IP to health, construction, and real estate, to name a few.

“With more than eighty lawyers advising this sector, we are proud to now have one of the largest multi-disciplinary public sector legal teams in Ireland.”

Michelle Ní Longáin, Head of the firm's Public Sector Group added: “Given our extensive experience and long history advising this sector, we have developed a deep understanding of the environment in which public sector organisations operate, their key challenges and requirements. We also understand how those working within this sector operate under a high level of public scrutiny, within a highly regulated and pressurised environment, and the need for transparency is key.

“ByrneWallace has a strong culture of excellence and accountability, which we know resonates with our public sector clients. We invest substantial resources to ensure we provide the highest standard of service, insights and advice to meet, anticipate and exceed the sector’s evolving needs. We also make a particular effort to ensure that we consistently deliver actual value and benefit to our clients, both through the type of services and advice we provide, and in the way we deliver them.”

Feargal further added, “We are delighted to have once again been honoured by this award. We are very committed to providing the highest quality of service to the public sector. We have tremendous respect for the people who work within this sector, and for the service they provide the Irish people.”
