RDJ has appointed Louise Boughton and Sarah Slevin as partners across the firm’s corporate and commercial and dispute resolution practices.

Ms Boughton, now partner in the dispute resolution team, specialises in the area of insurance defence litigation. She has extensive experience advising both public and private sector clients in this area.

She has advised and defended State authorities in relation to liability claims initiated against the State in the Circuit Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

She also brings her extensive experience from working for the State Claims Agency to the private sector and advises self-insured entities and insurers in both the Irish and UK jurisdiction.

Ms Slevin, now partner in the corporate and commercial team, has expertise across M&A/corporate finance, corporate advisory and commercial advisory, as well as cyber and data protection, technology and AI.

She has advised on numerous complex and high-value transactions across M&A, private equity, venture capital investment and restructuring, across a wide range of sectors, deal sizes and deal types and acting for both buyers/investors and sellers/targets.

Her advisory work covers all business challenges faced by organisations, including commercial matters, contracting, IP protection, governance and compliance.

She also has a deep expertise in all aspects of data protection law and compliance, technology and, more recently, AI, advising clients, including multinational companies, large public sector bodies and innovative technology companies in all sectors and across all sizes on complex queries specific to each of these areas.

Commenting on the appointments, RDJ managing partner Jamie Olden said: “My congratulations to Louise and Sarah on reaching this milestone in their career. They are talented solicitors who have demonstrated exemplary commitment to the firm and to our clients.

“I am delighted to welcome them into the partnership and look forward to having them play a key role in the firm’s future as they start the next phase of their careers here in RDJ.”
