Dublin firm KOD Lyons has taken over the practice of Dun Laoghaire-based Jonathan Dunphy Solicitors following the appointment of its managing partner as a Circuit Court judge.

The firms said the “strategic union” would enhance legal services for the clients of both firms, particularly in the areas of criminal defence and strategic public interest litigation.

Jonathan Dunphy studied at University College Dublin and qualified as a solicitor in 2002 before establishing Jonathan Dunphy Solicitors in 2005. He was nominated for appointment to the Circuit Court bench in October this year, filling a vacancy created by the expansion of judicial numbers.

Commenting on the takeover, John O’Doherty, managing partner at KOD Lyons, said: “We are thrilled to have taken over Jonathan Dunphy Solicitors, a firm with a stellar reputation and a commitment to excellence that aligns seamlessly with our own vision, particularly in the area of criminal defence work.

“This takeover represents an exciting move which will undoubtedly enhance our firm’s capabilities and better serve the diverse needs of our clients particularly in our criminal defence work. By combining our strengths, we are poised to provide an even higher level of service to our clients.

“We also extend our warmest congratulations to our friend and former colleague Jonathan Dunphy on his well-deserved appointment as a Circuit Court judge.”
