A&L Goodbody (ALG) has announced the appointment of 11 new partners, 27 new associates and three of counsel across the firm’s Dublin, Belfast and London offices.

The partner appointments – eight in Dublin and three in Belfast – are the largest number of partner appointments ALG has made and brings the total number of partners in the firm to 104.

The new partners in Dublin are Laura Butler in asset management and funds; Andrea Lawler in commercial and technology; Niamh McMahon in finance; Sarah Murphy in commercial dispute resolution; Darran Nangle in corporate M&A; Ciarán Ó Conluain in commercial dispute resolution; Sinéad O’Connor in finance; and Kerill O’Shaughnessy in asset management and funds.

In Belfast, the new partners are Sam Corbett in restructuring and insolvency; David Rowan in corporate M&A; and Mark Stockdale in corporate and energy.

The newly created position of “of counsel”, a role similar to partner and widely seen in US and UK corporate law firms, is held by Dublin lawyers Emma Martin in insurance; Philip McQueston in tax; and Noeleen Meehan in employment.

Julian Yarr, managing partner at ALG, said: “In a fast moving and dynamic market it’s really important that we help our clients thrive. I’m confident that our newly promoted partners and senior lawyers can do that by combining deep specialist technical knowledge with broader executive and business skills honed through our award winning ALG School of Business & Law.

“Many congratulations to each of our new partners and senior lawyers on their appointments. They reflect the diversity in our business and in the clients who we support. I look forward to working with them as we continue to grow our business.”
