Corporate Advisory and Governance

We don’t just see the risk, we create the solution.

quotes The firm "was extremely good at really getting to know what we needed, what we were about and where we were headed."Chambers Europe, 2017

We advise companies (from early stage to established multinationals), government departments, state bodies, the not-for-profit sector and charities on advisory and governance matters.


We do not simply provide professional advice – members of our group sit on boards of various organisations including hospitals, charities, state bodies and private businesses. We understand that legal advice must be capable of practical implementation.


With the international focus of our business, through our offices (in Dublin, Brussels and San Francisco) and membership of Multilaw, we can provide you with access to the very latest international corporate developments and to thought leaders.


Our solutions strike an appropriate balance between providing stakeholder, investor and regulatory confidence whilst at the same time facilitating commercial objectives and operations.  We help board members to function efficiently within controlled parameters to achieve commercial objectives.


To give you a flavour of the diverse nature of our work, a sample of our recent projects includes:


  • Advising FDI clients entering EU on appropriate Irish governance structures
  • Advising a public sector body on preparation of a Code of Business Conduct, in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Practice for Governance of State Bodies
  • Advising a hybrid public-private organisation on appropriate measures to secure board compliance with governance policies and legislative non-disclosure requirements
  • Assisting a government department to carry out a review of governance structures within a sector it regulates and to recommend alternative governance structures
  • Advising a private company in relation to a shareholder dispute
  • Provision of full induction and director governance training to a board of directors of a private company
  • Advising a corporate body established under charter on its corporate governance obligations
  • Provision of corporate secretarial assistance to our private sector client base


Clients seek our advice across the following legal areas:


  • Directors’ duties and responsibilities

  • Company law and compliance
  • Company secretarial
  • Board structure
  • Director governance training
  • Code of practice for the governance of state bodies
