UK & Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson has strengthened its Irish corporate offering with the appointment of Principal Associate James Byrne to the firm’s Dublin office.

The firm launched its Irish office in Dublin in late 2022 with great success - achieving rankings in the Legal 500 EMEA on their first entry to the international legal directory. Since opening in July 2022, the office has relocated to a larger premises at 2 Hume Street, Dublin 2, in order to meet the needs of the growing team and client base.

William Darmody, Partner at Browne Jacobson and head of the firm’s Irish Corporate team said: “James’ appointment is a significant step forward for Browne Jacobson’s Irish Corporate practice, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team. His wealth of experience in the Irish M&A market is a testament to his ability to deliver top-tier results for our clients. We’re all thrilled to have James join the team and help take our Corporate offering to the next level.”

I’m very much looking forward to working alongside Will and the team to make a real difference for Browne Jacobson’s expansive client base.”
