We offer a fully integrated tax service providing both advisory and compliance services to our clients. Our highly experienced team is made up of lawyers, chartered accountants and tax advisors.

In contrast to several other Irish law firms, we operate primarily as a 'front end' service, where we act as sole and lead counsel in most transactions as well as in an ongoing advisory role. This has allowed us to build a strong portfolio of domestic and international clients from both the private and public sectors.  

Focused on offering pragmatic and realistic solutions, we advise a broad range of clients including private and public sector organisations, international corporations, financial institutions as well as private clients. As part of our multi-disciplinary approach, we regularly work alongside lawyers from our other practice areas to advise on the taxation aspects of client transactions.

Our team has developed specialist expertise advising clients on structured finance transactions, capital market issues, investment funds and cross border financings. We have significant experience in the area of intellectual property planning, mergers and acquisitions, inward investment, group re-organisations, property acquisition and holding structures. We also provide advices on all personal taxation matters including employment related issues, pensions, retirement, succession planning and other matters affecting high net worth individuals.
