Philip Lee is delighted to be the exclusive legal sponsor of the hugely popular British Irish Chamber of Commerce Annual Gala Dinner taking place on September 5th. It is always an extremely well attended and popular event for business.
John McGrane and the team do an amazing job connecting members and keeping us all abreast of developments in Britain as they unfold, educating us on the positive and negative implications for Ireland and soothing our anxieties about the B word. We are delighted to have recently become a Council Member and look forward to being more involved with the Chamber.
As Irish Law Firm of the Year 2019, Philip Lee is the fastest growing Irish commercial law firm with offices in Dublin, London, San Francisco and Brussels. Our property team is also recognised as Property Law Firm of the Year and Leinster Property Law Firm of the Year.
Our lawyers are ranked as top tier experts and recognised leaders in several areas of law, including competition, construction, corporate, data, employment, energy, environmental, EU, intellectual property, PPP, procurement, real estate and tax.
We work with some of the most interesting organisations from both the private and public sector, operating in the world’s leading sectors, most notably finance, banking, retail, food, pharmaceutical, technology, media, energy and life sciences.
We made the strategic decision to open our London office in 2018. It allows us maintain and develop relationships with professional services firms and other contacts, building new links and grasping opportunities that arise from Brexit. Given that we were already working closely with peers and clients in the UK, having a base located in the thriving commercial and technology hub in the city, it made a lot of commercial sense to us. We recruited a new corporate partner, Andrew Tzialli, to head up the London office. Andrew has been a significant addition to the team bringing a wealth of experience and contacts from his previous role in a large London law firm. Andrew is a global leader in blockchain.
Referring to the uncertainty that Brexit may bring, Managing Partner, Philip Lee says ‘We are the only Irish law firm whose partners have represented clients before the panels and the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). With uncharted waters ahead, there will be an increased need for strong and steady advice on international trade law in the foreseeable future.’
The firm has a strong international focus with additional offices in Brussels and San Francisco. It is the sole Irish member of Multilaw, a consortium network of over 10,000 lawyers in 100 countries worldwide. Through active participation, clients have direct access to an impressive breadth of legal, policy and business resources from other jurisdictions.
We are lawyers who want to use our expertise to shape society. We help our clients achieve their objectives. That means knowing more than just the law but knowing the client’s world, foreseeing the future in which they will live and coming up with solutions for them. Put simply, our role is to facilitate getting a client from A to B whilst avoiding the potholes.
We attract brilliant people who want to be part of making a difference for our clients. In size, we are a mid-market firm but what makes us special is that we have top tier specialist expertise.
