    Our client base is diverse, operating in a range of industries. In addition to advising some of Ireland’s leading early stage companies, we provide advice to third-level institutions, spin-out companies and multi-national corporations operating in Ireland.

We help scaling businesses to navigate the relevant issues but also advise multi-national corporations, particularly in respect of establishing a presence in Ireland.
