A&L Goodbody has announced the appointment of Conor Owens as a new partner in the firm’s construction team in Dublin.

The firm said the move follows a “surge in activity” in the construction industry over the last two years, mainly due to more favourable economic conditions in Ireland.

Julian Yarr, managing partner at A&L Goodbody, said: “We continue to develop our market leading construction team and I’m delighted to welcome Conor who brings a wealth of experience and industry knowledge.

“We see good prospects for the construction sector as the Irish economy continues to improve. This economic growth has a positive impact on investment in national infrastructure projects as well as increased activity in residential land development and commercial construction.”

Mr Owens specialises in contentious construction law, resolving disputes between construction parties through litigation, arbitration and mediation. He also provides non-contentious legal advice to construction firms such as the negotiation of building contracts, consultant appointments and sub-contracts.
