Regarded as one of Ireland’s premier technology law firms, ByrneWallace advises a wide spectrum of Irish and international tech companies, across all stages of their development - from start-ups to mid-cap and scaling companies, right through to large domestic and multinational organisations.  

The firm provides legal advice on a range of corporate matters and has specialist expertise advising on fundraising, data protection, IP and brand protection (contentious and non-contentious), cybersecurity & data privacy, online trading, web development and operational issues, software licensing (entreprise and SaaS licensing), electronic payments and fintech.
