A&L Goodbody welcomes four new partners
A&L Goodbody has appointed four new partners across its Dublin, Belfast and London offices as well as a new of counsel in Dublin.
The new Dublin partners are Chris Bergin in the asset management and investment funds team and Aideen Burke in the commercial and technology team, while James Flanagan becomes a partner in the construction and projects team in Belfast, and Phil Fogarty becomes a partner in the corporate transactions team in London.
Kate Harnett has been appointed as an of counsel in the disputes and investigations team in Dublin.
All are internal promotions effective from 1 January 2024 with the exception of Ms Burke, who joins ALG from an international law firm based in Dublin.
Ms Burke specialises in intellectual property, technology and data privacy law, working with both domestic and international clients. She advises clients across a broad range of sectors, with particular speciality in technology, media and telecoms.
The new partners and of counsel are in addition to the appointments of Aisling Muldowney and Lorena Dunne as partners and Caroline McNally as of counsel already announced earlier this year.
David Widger, managing partner at ALG, said: “Congratulations to Chris, James, Phil and Kate on their appointments, and a warm welcome to Aideen.
“In developing and attracting the very best lawyers, we always have an eye on the future — both in terms of areas where we see healthy demand and in what’s being asked of us by our clients.
“Our new partners and of counsel all demonstrate the adaptability and forward thinking that’s at the core of how we service our clients.”
