DAC Beachcroft recruits two new partners in Dublin
International law firm DAC Beachcroft has bolstered its Dublin office through the hire of a two female partner-led team.
Corporate partner Sharon McCaffrey and competition law partner Joanne Finn have joined the firm, bringing with them a team of two senior associates, one associate and a secretary.
The appointments follow the promotion of Niamh McKeever to partner in May this year, to head up the firm’s healthcare group which provides a full service in the area of medical malpractice in Ireland.
Ms McCaffrey brings with her a wealth of experience in acting for Irish and international businesses, as well as individual shareholders, across a range of business sectors including telecoms, renewables, infrastructure and tourism/hospitality.
Ms Finn has experience in EU and Irish competition and regulatory law, with particular specialism in healthcare, construction, energy, telecommunications, agri-food, retail/consumer and aviation.
Lisa Broderick, partner and location head, said: “These strategic hires are an important part of the firm’s long-term commitment to the Irish market. The expansion of our offering to include commercial and competition law capabilities is based purely on client demand and need.
“Meanwhile, the next stage of DAC Beachcroft’s strategy to strengthen its presence in Ireland will see the firm move into new Dublin premises in 2020. When our Dublin office opened ten years ago, there was just one lawyer. With now over 70 colleagues and 10 partners, our growth in the region has been substantial.”
