Clyde & Co has opened an office in Dublin as a result of Brexit. The law firm said the move is to ensure its Irish law insurance practice can continue to operate seamlessly as the UK leaves the EU.
England- and Ireland-qualified Clyde & Co insurance and reinsurance partner Garrett Moore will be based in the Dublin office, supported by his team in London who have been providing Irish law advice to Irish and London market insurers and reinsurers for a number of years.
“We have been offering our insurance and commercial clients advice concerning matters relating to Irish law for a number of years and we want to ensure this continues, whatever the outcome of Brexit. The office and a formal Dublin presence will allow us to do that,” said Mr Moore.
Clyde & Co’s Irish insurance team in London includes legal director Maire Ni Aodha, who represents clients in professional indemnity, property, liability, construction bond and bloodstock matters; together with senior associates Ann-Marie Morgan-Barrett and Michelle D’Arcy; associate Liam Harnett; and litigation manager Brendan Myers.
According to Clyde & Co, the team works with insurers and reinsurers in London, Dublin and worldwide, providing access to Irish law advice and representation before the Irish courts on coverage, defence, subrogation and procedural issues spanning insurance lines including professional liability, financial lines, D&O, E&O, employers, public and product liability, cyber response and data protection, CAR, latent defects and bloodstock.
Clyde & Co has a number of offices in Europe, including Paris, Madrid, Nantes, Duesseldorf and Hamburg.
