A&L Goodbody appoints Patrick Brandt and Andrew Sheridan as partners in Dublin
A&L Goodbody (ALG) has announced the appointment of Patrick Brandt and Andrew Sheridan as partners in its Dublin office.
Mr Brandt has joined the firm’s financial regulation team, while Mr Sheridan has joined the commercial & technology team.
Their appointments follow the announcement of ten new partners in May and bring the firm’s total partner count to 105 across its Dublin, Belfast, London, San Francisco and Palo Alto offices.
Mr Brandt has strong experience in advising a wide variety of financial services clients on non-contentious and contentious regulatory matters. He joined ALG from an international law firm based in London and has also worked for regulators in the UK.
Mr Sheridan also joins ALG from an international firm based in London. His practice covers the contentious and non‑contentious aspects of intellectual property (IP) and data, as well as commercial agreements and technology law.
He regularly advises on IP and data-driven transactions, as well as the full range of legal issues relating to data regulation, including in the context of data privacy crises and investigations, deals and new data uses.
Managing partner Julian Yarr said: “Regulation is increasingly important to our clients, none more so than in financial services, data and technology law.
“Not only do Patrick and Andrew bring a great deal of experience, but they also have international insight and knowledge which is invaluable to our global clients.
“They are a welcome addition to our market leading teams in financial regulation and commercial & technology.”
