Commenting on the appointments, managing partner Declan Black said: “It’s always a pleasure to welcome new partners. This year’s appointments are a mix of those who have been with the firm since training and those that have joined from elsewhere.
“While different in background and specialisms, what unites them is a commercial understanding of the sectors they operate in, deep expertise and an unstuffy approach to giving clear legal advice.”
Across Dublin, London, New York and San Francisco, Mason Hayes & Curran has nearly 500 staff.
