Dentons appoints Niamh Keogh as tax partner

Global law firm Dentons has recruited Niamh Keogh as a tax partner in its Dublin office.

Ms Keogh joins the firm from Mason Hayes & Curran, where she is currently a partner and co-head of tax.

She advises domestic and international clients across all tax heads in a wide range of sectors. She has experience of advising on inward investment into Ireland and M&A, and is a specialist on the use of Irish regulated fund structures and securitisation vehicles. She has also acted as Irish tax counsel on international and domestic group reorganisations and establishments in Ireland.

Paul Jarvis, Dentons’ UK, Ireland and Middle East CEO, said: “We now have a critical mass of lawyers in Dublin that is regularly advising on high profile big ticket transactional work, so recruiting high quality tax expertise is a natural progression for the business.

“Niamh’s arrival gives us tax capability and credibility in the Dublin market as we continue to support clients on their most complex global issues.”

Eavan Saunders, Ireland managing partner, added: “Our plans for Dublin include investing in structured finance and aviation finance, where tax support is critical. Tax disputes is another growth area.

“Niamh’s recruitment is consistent with our vision of building a high calibre senior team at the premium international firm in the Irish market.”

Ms Keogh’s recruitment follows the firm’s recent hire of structured finance, securitisation and debt capital markets partner Matthew Cahill.
