Bird & Bird

International law firm Bird & Bird hired IT/IP lawyer Deirdre Kilroy and data protection lawyer Anna Morgan to launch its Dublin office in June 2022. In December 2022, the firm hired IP litigator Michael Finn and noted its "ambitious three-year growth plan... to expand the team to at least 30 lawyers, including five partners".

McCann FitzGerald

McCann FitzGerald became a limited liability partnership (LLP) on November 1 2021. The firm is one of the leading Irish law firms for IP disputes and transactions. 

Fiona O'Beirne heads the firm’s contentious IP practice, in which clients will find lawyers such as Shane O’Brien and Rosaleen Byrne. Paul Lavery is responsible for the IP transactional practice and is supported by Adam Finlay and Doug McMahon. All the partners in the practice can advise on soft IP matters, but O'Beirne and O’Brien are the key lawyers for patent disputes.
