Leading Irish law firm Matheson (today Thursday 5 April) announced the appointment of seven new partners practicing in the areas of Finance and Capital Markets, Corporate, EU and Competition, Asset Management, Investment Funds, Employment, Pensions and Benefits, Real Estate Financing, Litigation and Dispute Resolution. Sligo native Barry McGettrick has been appointed Partner specialising in Tax.
Barry is from Ballymote, Co. Sligo and attended Coláiste Muire. Barry specialises in international tax advising on supply chain tax structuring, inward investment projects, corporate reorganisations, cross border taxation of senior executives, tax controversy as well as mergers and acquisitions. His practice work spans a portfolio of international clients primarily in the ICT, life sciences, manufacturing, retail and industrial sectors.
Commenting on the new appointments, Michael Jackson, Managing Partner at Matheson, said:
“The appointment of our 7 new partners reflects the strength and growth of our business, as we respond to the needs of our domestic clients with an international focus and our international client base doing business in and from Ireland.
I want to congratulate Barry and his fellow Partners on their appointment and wish them every success for the future.
These appointments recognise not only an outstanding breadth of technical and legal knowledge, but also the considerable sectoral knowledge of our partners in areas which are of key economic importance for our clients and for Ireland’s economic path post-Brexit.
“Our seven new partners at Matheson exemplify the exceptionally high standard of legal talent which Ireland offers companies and institutions seeking to choose the best possible location from which to do business in Europe following the UK’s departure from the EU.
Each of these seven lawyers demonstrates the unrelenting drive and ambition required to deliver outstanding results for our clients and to do so collaboratively, linking together the deep pools of sectoral expertise right across Matheson’s entire legal practice of in excess of 30 practice groups, and in a way that sets us apart from other law firms.
The new partners work with a range of large domestic clients operating in key sectors of the Irish economy – as well as the firm’s multinational clients who have established operations in Ireland. Matheson has five global offices, 84 partners and tax principals, and over 650 legal and business support professionals, providing the full range of legal advice and services its clients need, when they need it.
