A&L Goodbody has announced the appointment of partners Matthew Cole and Gina Conheady to its Dublin and San Francisco offices.

Having previously practised in London, Mr Cole brings a wealth of international and domestic experience and will work with clients from the Dublin office on a range of M&A and capital markets transactions.

Ms Conheady joins as the new head of the firm’s San Francisco office, taking over from John Whelan who has returned to Dublin to lead the firm’s IT & Data Protection practice.

Having practised on the West Coast of the US since 2013, she will support the firm’s US clients with all aspects of Irish corporate law.

Julian Yarr, managing partner at A&L Goodbody, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Matt and Gina to the firm as we look to continue our growth and development.

“They both bring a wealth of international experience to our already very strong Corporate and M&A team.

“Our international clients are very important to us and we are seeing an increasing amount of activity, particularly in the US and the UK, from clients looking to invest in Ireland and having Matt and Gina on board will enhance our proposition in this regard.”

The appointments bring the firm’s total number of partners to 88.
