International law firm Clark Hill has appointed Kevin Kent as a litigator working from its Dublin and Philadelphia offices.

Mr Kent, who joins from a Philadelphia-based law firm, will co-lead the firm’s transatlantic strategy with Pittsburgh-based Jarrod Duffy and Dublin-based Sam Saarsteiner.

He has been appointed to the position of member, which is broadly equivalent to the position of partner in Irish law firms.

John Hensien, Clark Hill’s chief executive officer, said: “Kevin’s impressive experience advising clients on a range of litigation and regulatory matters make him an ideal addition to our litigation team.

“Given the connections Kevin has built over the years to companies doing business between the United States and Ireland, we are pleased to have him working with Jarrod Duffy and Sam Saarsteiner to lead our transatlantic strategy, building on the continued growth of our Dublin office.

“As our clients continue to expand in Europe, Kevin’s insights, added to his Irish and English law licenses, will be invaluable to those on both sides of the ocean.”

Mr Kent said: “Clark Hill is the ideal fit for me and for my clients. I am particularly excited to have the opportunity to strengthen and expand transatlantic business.

“Clark Hill’s range of services will benefit my clients who will experience the same high level of legal guidance they’ve come to expect, with the added asset of access to a team specifically focused on the transactional and litigation matters that arise for multinational companies.”

Clark Hill established its Dublin office in 2016 and expanded through mergers with O’Gradys Solicitors in 2019 and Eames Solicitors earlier this year.
