Comyn Kelleher Tobin (CKT) has announced the appointment of Louise Duggan, Lebeau Jonker and Emily Sexton as partners across the firm’s Dublin and Cork offices.

Ms Duggan, partner in CKT’s commercial property department, has a track record acting for developers, institutions and businesses in a complex property market.

She advises on all areas of commercial conveyancing and the acquisition, financing, leasing, development and disposal of commercial property and mixed scheme developments, and her clients include property developers, investors, receivers, banks, state bodies and educational institutions.

Mr Jonker, partner in healthcare and medical law, has a national reputation in healthcare and child protection law with extensive experience in wardship, mental health, disabilities, civil detention and civil detention cases with an international element.

He is a member of the Association for Criminal Justice Research and Development (ACJRD), and lectured in the law module at Trinity College Dublin’s School of Social Work and Policy undergraduate and postgraduate courses 2016-2018.

Ms Sexton, partner in employment, healthcare and medical law, is a CEDR-accredited mediator and practises in the area of employment law, primarily advising employers, including healthcare employers, in relation to legislative obligations and the defence of employment claims.

She also acts in the defence of clinical negligence proceedings, employer liability claims and public liability claims. She has experience in providing advice to healthcare providers on all aspects of healthcare law including consent to treatment, patient capacity issues, regulatory issues, confidentiality, data protection, freedom of information and risk management issues.

Deborah Moore, managing partner at Comyn Kelleher Tobin, said: “We are delighted to announce firm-wide growth, especially in our specialist areas of healthcare, employment, property, child and family law.

“With economic uncertainty now ‘the new norm’, Irish businesses cannot get consumed with bleak economic warnings. You need to be committed to your offering. If you are both client-focused and client-led you can’t go wrong.

“That doesn’t mean we get to sit back. Cybersecurity, the war for high-quality talent and increased overheads such as rents and salary expectations are just some of the current challenges for Irish businesses. In a bid to futureproof our business and ensure our clients are reaping the rewards and savings offered by modern technology, we have invested hugely in our business including IT developments.”
