We are

Opened in 2018, our Dublin office is a gateway to international markets for Irish and global companies based in Ireland. Our focus is on the financial services, life sciences and technology sectors – combined with capability in corporate, tax, finance, technology and employment law.

A pioneering presence

Having a strong presence in Dublin is a key priority for us. Our new office further underlines our ongoing commitment to better serve our global client base. We’re the only truly global law firm with a presence in Dublin.

Trusted advisors

We are responding to the needs of clients looking for a firm which disrupts the status quo, works differently and embraces innovation – and helps them grow their businesses across multiple jurisdictions by combining a deep knowledge of their industries with an innovative approach to the delivery of legal services.

Our achievements

A dynamic team

We are building a team of dynamic, globally-oriented lawyers to deliver market-leading Irish legal and tax advice and facilitate the delivery of global legal and tax advice. We’re initially looking for progressive, dynamic lawyers and tax advisers in the financial services, technology and life sciences sectors.

Confident growth

Our Dublin office is at an early stage in our plans for a robust Ireland-based business. Led by Country Managing Partner David Carthy, we offer experience and local know-how backed by DLA Piper’s global resources and network.

Global hub

Dublin is an important legal market and a key global hub for the financial services and technology sectors. In addition to being well located to support our global tax practice, we expect more institutions to have or develop a presence in the country – which will contribute to our growth.

Long-term growth

DLA Piper is the largest employer of graduate lawyers in the United Kingdom and we intend to begin hiring trainee lawyers in Ireland soon. We have rapidly appointed and continue to build a substantial team of partners, fee earners and business professionals.
