NI: A&L Goodbody announces partnership with Chartered Accountants
A&L Goodbody has announced a new partnership with Chartered Accountants Ulster Society which will see the law firm support a series of key events and provide webcasts on legal issues.
Jointly branded seminars for local Chartered Accountants will begin in May on the topic of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Other subjects to be covered in the practical seminar series include corporate disputes, insolvency, restructuring and employment law.
The Ulster Society is a district society of Chartered Accountants Ireland, the largest professional body of accountants on the island of Ireland. It currently represents 4,500 members across Northern Ireland.
The new agreement covers the next three years.
Pamela McCreedy, chair of Chartered Accountants Ulster Society, said: “We are delighted to appoint A&L Goodbody as a key partner and we look forward to a long and constructive association.
“A&L Goodbody will bring expertise, along with a breadth of experience and insight which our members will greatly appreciate, whether they work in practice, in industry or the voluntary sector. The series of legal webcasts are an important part of our calendar and carry a tremendous range of benefits for our members right across Northern Ireland.”
Michael Neill, partner in the restructuring and insolvency team at A&L Goodbody, said: “We very much welcome this opportunity to partner with our colleagues in the accountancy profession in Northern Ireland – many of whom we work closely with on a daily basis.
“As local businesses continue to navigate their way through uncertain territory amid the ongoing Brexit discussions and political stalemate in Northern Ireland, the role of the professional advisor will become increasingly important. For that reason, we see great value in the sharing of knowledge between the legal and accountancy professions and look forward to the mutual benefits that this partnership will bring.”
