Mr Pelly added: “Barry is a superb lawyer, with a wealth of expertise across all areas of employment law, built on over two decades of experience in the Irish market.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him again and, along with our growing team, to expanding our existing ability to offer a practical, solutions-focused alternative to companies who are operating in Ireland.

“Former clients have described Barry as a standout partner in the employment field. They love his very approachable manner and praise him for being an excellent negotiator who will go the extra mile to ensure the right outcome for his clients.”
