Global law firm confirms its plans for Dublin office
International law firm Pinsent Masons has announced it is opening a base in Dublin.
The London-headquartered firm, which already has a large office in Belfast, was widely expected to set up an operation in the Republic in the wake of Brexit.
Its Dublin office will have three staff and will focus on the financial services and technology sectors initially.
The firm said the new office will target work initially from the 50 of Pinsent Masons top 250 clients who are present in Ireland, and will bring the total number of Pinsent Masons lawyers across the island to 12 partners and over 50 lawyers.
Richard Foley, Pinsent Masons' senior partner, commented that Dublin's status as a key global hub for the financial services and technology industries had "become even more significant in the context of Brexit".
