Corporate Governance & Compliance


Our Corporate Governance and Compliance Team provides an integrated and extensive range of corporate advisory, corporate governance and company compliance services to our Irish and overseas clients. We have a broad client base ranging from start-up companies to listed and regulated public limited companies and we advise them on all aspects of Irish company law.

The corporate lawyers on the team specialise in advising on complex company law matters, providing advice and bespoke training to the boards of Irish companies and in assisting organisations, both domestic and international, in designing and implementing suitable group structures.

Our compliance team is made up of experienced chartered secretaries that provide company secretarial compliance advice and services to our corporate clients.  These services encompass the entire life cycle of an Irish company from establishment, through meeting annual and other filing requirements to dissolution.

The corporate lawyers and chartered secretaries on the team work closely, ensuring that the company law needs of our portfolio of Irish companies are met in a streamlined and holistic manner.
