Matheson partner named Best in Investment Funds
Tara Doyle, Matheson’s head of asset management and investment funds, has been named Best in Investment Funds at the Euromoney LMG Europe Women in Business Law Awards 2017.
Ms Doyle, who also chairs the Irish Funds Industry Association, wins the award for a consecutive year and is the only Irish lawyer ever to win the award.
She said: “I am delighted to be recognised by the awards for a second year and to be part of a firm that actively supports diversity of leadership.
“This is an exciting year for the Irish Funds industry and I look forward to working with the international funds community in a closer capacity than ever before.”
At the preceding conference, Ms Doyle and a fellow nominee, litigation partner Karen Reynolds, hosted a panel discussion on work-life balance. The discussion centred on how work-life balance should be seen as a workplace issue, rather than a gender issue.
Matheson is the only Irish law firm with a woman heading its investment funds practice, following Ms Doyle’s appointment last January.
Ms Doyle heads the largest investment funds practice in Ireland, and together with her team, act as legal advisers for over 29 per cent of Irish domiciled investment funds by assets under management.
