13 Dec 2018 | 09:13 am | 1 min. read

International law firm Pinsent Masons has announced the hire of three new partners for its office in Dublin.

Bringing the partnership team to seven in total, the trio will strengthen the firm's offering across Financial Services, Real Estate and Energy & Projects at their Windmill Lane (Dublin 2) premises.

A global 100 law firm, Pinsent Masons has an all-island offering with premises in Dublin and Belfast, as well as employing over 3000 people globally across 24 offices, including over 1500 lawyers and 400 partners.

Garrett Monaghan comes on board from DWF, and prior to that Arthur Cox. Garrett is highly regarded within the Irish energy, projects and project finance sectors and has particular expertise in the development, acquisition and financing of renewables with extensive energy trading experience. He will bring Pinsent Masons' global credentials into a market that is undergoing significant regulatory change in parallel to the wider development of large offshore wind, solar and interconnection projects. Garrett will work with Belfast based partner Richard Murphy to present and deliver our market leading all-island energy advice.

Kevin Collins joins from Eversheds Sutherland and will build out the property and real estate practice in Dublin. He has experience in both national and international firms with a focus on commercial property, encompassing all aspects of transactional work in real estate, energy, retail and leisure.

Ann Lalor joins from Whitney Moore.  She is a banking partner with extensive experience in acting for Irish and international banks and financial institutions, mezzanine lenders, private funders and corporate borrowers across real estate and construction, transport, retail, natural resources and energy sectors.

Gayle Bowen, Head of Pinsent Masons' Dublin Office said:

"The rate at which we are growing our team with highly skilled, sector-focused, senior lawyers is a further signal of our ambition in Ireland. When we launched in Dublin the initial focus of the Dublin office was on the Financial Services and Technology sectors. Our latest hires broaden our local offering to all five of the firm's global sectors, bringing expertise in Energy, Infrastructure and Real Estate as well as building out our Financial Services capability and bolster our international sectoral bench strength.

Since our launch we have quickly gathered momentum. Clients, both in Ireland and internationally, are enthusiastic about our unique approach to legal service delivery, which combines our people, processes and technology to develop bespoke solutions for our clients.

I'm delighted to welcome our new colleagues to the team as they become part of delivering our vision to become an international market leader in our global sectors."
