James Byrne

Browne Jacobson has appointed James Byrne as principal associate in the firm’s Dublin corporate team.

Mr Byrne practises in the areas of corporate and commercial law and has over 12 years’ experience in a wide range of transactions including mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, private equity and re-organisations/restructuring.

He has been involved in significant Irish M&A transactions in recent years and has experience across a range of sectors including technology, healthcare/life sciences, retail, food/beverages, media, and manufacturing.

His appointment bolsters the firm’s growing Irish corporate team following a number of recent appointments, including partner William Darmody to lead the team.

The UK and Ireland law firm launched its Irish office in Dublin in late 2022.

Mr Darmody said: “James’ appointment is a significant step forward for Browne Jacobson’s Irish corporate practice, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.

“His wealth of experience in the Irish M&A market is a testament to his ability to deliver top-tier results for our clients.

“We’re all thrilled to have James join the team and help take our corporate offering to the next level.”

Mr Byrne added: “Browne Jacobson has continuously grown in strength since launching in Ireland in 2022, and with the high calibre of its expanding corporate team, it’s certainly an exciting time to join the firm.

“I’m very much looking forward to working alongside Will and the team to make a real difference for Browne Jacobson’s expansive client base.”
