Commenting on the announcement, Head of Corporate Neil Keenan said, “We are delighted that these transactions, on which we advised, have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards. These transactions were all quite diverse by nature, and each one required second to none client service and an extensive range of legal expertise. These transactions are also a testament to our multi-disciplinary approach as they involved lawyers from our various practice areas collaborating to pool their diverse skills and specialist expertise, and while doing so, deliver a seamless and integrated service to our clients. 

“ByrneWallace has a long track record advising leading corporates, institutional investors, private investors and venture capital firms on a broad range of corporate transactions. This is reflected in the quality of all the deals on which we advised during the last year, in addition to the 12 shortlisted for Awards.”

ByrneWallace have previously won at these Awards having advised on the Finance Dublin Deal of the Year Loans & Financing (SME Sector) in 2017 and in 2018. 

The winners of the 2019 Awards will be announced in the May issue of the Finance Dublin Magazine.
