DWF Dublin appoints Órlaith Molloy as real estate partner
Global legal business DWF has announced the appointment of Órlaith Molloy as a partner in its real estate team in Dublin.
Ms Molloy previously served as a real estate partner at Arthur Cox, which she joined eight years ago. She specialises in high value commercial real estate acting for investors, developers and lending institutions as well landlord and tenant matters.
Her practice includes advising foreign investors, lending institutions, private companies and State-owned bodies on a wide range of property-related matters, including acquisitions and disposals, pre-lets, forward purchases, high profile lease transactions, surrender negotiations and re-gearing, loan sales, corporate and finance transactions, and other property management issues.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Molloy said: “I am delighted to join DWF. The business has a very open-minded culture of innovation and a unique integrated approach, which creates an opportunity to offer a bespoke service to real estate businesses, and anyone involved in the real estate sector. I look forward to collaborating with colleagues across the business to develop our real estate offering in Ireland and beyond.”
Her arrival follows DWF’s recent promotion of insurance lawyer Sinéad Ryan to partner in the Dublin office, alongside several other promotions across the team.
Eimear Collins, managing partner of DWF in Dublin, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Órlaith to the business, following so closely after the recent partner promotion of Sinéad Ryan.
“Along with our two new partners, the Dublin office is growing and expanding in other progressive ways; we’ve introduced our costs service in Ireland which is part of our connected services division, and we have recently launched our global ESG strategy which has ambitious carbon reduction targets and priorities to further improve the group’s diversity and inclusion.”
Toby Askin, global head of real estate at DWF, added: “Órlaith has exceptional experience and a broad network across Ireland’s real estate sector. She is an outstanding addition to the business. As well as focussing on the Irish market, Órlaith will play a strong role in both our pan-European investment and our finance and restructuring teams.”
