Global law firm Eversheds Sutherland has appointed employment law specialist Marie Claire Scullion as a partner in the firm’s commercial department in Dublin.

Ms Scullion, who brings over 18 years’ experience, provides strategic and practical advice to domestic and international clients on all aspects of the employment relationship. She advises businesses on the day-to-day employment issues that arise and drafts contractual documentation and policies.

She also advises on the employment aspects of corporate transactions and guides employers through restructuring programmes, and more contentious matters such as grievances, disciplinary matters, protected disclosures, redundancies, termination of employment and enforcement of post-termination restrictions.

In addition, Ms Scullion is a tutor on the Law Society of Ireland’s professional practice course in employment law and is a member of the Anti-Bullying Centre’s advisory board.

Commenting on her appointment, Ms Scullion said: “I am very pleased to be joining the commercial department at Eversheds Sutherland as a new partner.

“As an international firm operating in an increasingly global marketplace, Eversheds Sutherland is well-placed to service the needs of domestic and international clients and help them navigate employment issues with confidence.

“I am looking forward to working closely with all my colleagues in our Irish offices and throughout the Eversheds Sutherland network.”

Alan Connell, managing partner of Eversheds Sutherland Ireland, added: “As the largest and most established international law firm in Ireland, and a global top 10 law firm, our talented, multidiscipline teams are central to our ongoing success to not only meet but to stay ahead of our clients’ needs.

“Especially with Ireland’s status as a strategic gateway jurisdiction to the European marketplace, the effective management of local and global employment-related issues is of paramount importance to our clients, and Marie Claire’s skills and expertise are a great addition to our market-leading employment team.

“I am delighted to welcome Marie Claire to Eversheds Sutherland. I wish her every success with her role and I look forward to her contribution as we continue to grow our local and global capabilities and expertise.”
