Belfast-based commercial law firm Davidson McDonnell has appointed Raymond Duddy and Barbara Creed as directors.

The independent law firm said the senior strategic appointments will bolster its strength in corporate practice and commercial dispute resolution, and follow a period of continued growth.

Ross Davidson, director at Davidson McDonnell, said: “This is an exciting time for both our corporate practice and litigation dispute resolution division as we expand our director team and I’m delighted for Raymond and Barbara who consistently demonstrate their ability to deliver outstanding expertise, insight and compelling advice to our growing client base.

“Combined with recent additions across our finance and restructuring practice, it means we’re expertly poised to capitalise on new growth opportunities afforded not only the restoration of the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly but by wider activity across a range of sectors.”

Mr Duddy, who started his career with Magic Circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, joined Davidson McDonnell in 2017. He specialises in high-value mergers and acquisitions, private equity and investments.

Ms Creed, a former partner in a major Irish law firm, joined Davidson McDonnell in 2021 to develop the commercial disputes team.

Reflecting on the firm’s growth, director Vicky Dummigan said: “We see all our clients as valued partners, providing practical solutions and advice that support them to grow, invest and expand their business with confidence.

“We pride ourselves on our collegiate approach to negotiations which continues to win us retentions, referrals and positive market feedback.”
