International / FDI

Our dedicated International Client Services team pools together our diverse and complementary skills across key practice areas in an integrated, practical and innovative manner according to the needs of our international clients. 

Our team is comprised of lawyers with many years of experience advising a broad range of international companies and investors. 

We advise on the full range of legal services required when setting up, investing in or doing business through Ireland – from advice on the day-to-day business requirements such as employment, banking and finance, commercial/corporate, tax, corporate governance, property/real estate, company secretarial & compliance, and regulatory, to specialist niche advice including intellectual property & patents, data protection, mergers & acquisitions and outsourcing.  

We recognise the importance of accessibility, speed of response and confidentiality to the foreign direct investor. 

We provide a personal service to our clients. Our senior lawyers are accessible and work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams, pooling our diverse skills and expertise to deliver expert legal advice and a fully integrated service to our clients.  This dynamic and flexible approach has enabled us to develop and maintain a leading position in the provision of focused advice to international operators in Ireland.
