Our London office
The firm works closely with peers and clients based in the UK. In 2018 we made a strategic decision to open a London office to offer a wider range of services, build closer relationships and to address the changing landscape in light of Brexit. The 30th floor of the Leadenhall Building is now home to a team of our lawyers. Spearheaded by partners Andrew Tzialli and Bernard McEvoy, our London office provides a comprehensive service to a range of private sector clients to address all of their legal requirements in every specialist area.
Our San Francisco office
The firm’s San Francisco office has the resources to provide on-the-spot advice to companies investing in and expanding to the US, or on foreign direct investment in Europe. In recognition of the strong growth in the firm in the areas of life sciences and technology, we were one of the first Irish law firms to have a US presence on the west coast. Our office in San Francisco provides on-the-spot advice if your company is investing in and expanding to the US, or if you need advice on foreign direct investment in Europe.
