Over 170 firms now authorised as limited liability partnerships
Over 170 Irish law firms have been authorised to operate as limited liability partnerships since the law was changed late last year.
The Legal Services Regulatory Authority (LSRA) began accepting applications for authorisation as an LLP last November following the commencement of chapter 3 of part 8 of the Legal Services Regulation Act 2015.
As of 22 June 2020, 174 firms have been authorised to operate as LLPs, up from 155 firms the previous month.
Mason Hayes & Curran LLP, which was authorised to operate as an LLP in May, remains the largest of them.
