“Ronan Dunne is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is readily available and always delivers top-quality work within the agreed timelines.” Legal 500, 2020


Ronan also advises in respect of sectoral-specific regulatory matters, primarily those issues affecting the telecommunications industry, media and the pharmaceutical sector.


Ronan joined Philip Lee in 2017. He previously worked as a senior associate for over eleven years in one of Ireland’s leading law firms. Ronan is a fluent French speaker. He regularly presents at conferences and publishes in journals on competition law related matters.
