Law firm ByrneWallace has announced plans to recruit 100 tax professionals and lawyers over the next two years.
The group's managing partner, Feargal Brennan, said that the firm was experiencing strong growth across the board.
While demand for its advisory and transaction services “remains strong”, Mr Brennan said many of the new roles would be needed to meet increased demand in areas such as information and data management, cybercrime, tax and infrastructural development.
He said the firm’s medium-term plan would see ByrneWallace double in size in the next five years. “I expect our current headcount of about 300 to increase to over 600 in the next five years,” he said.
“Given the depth of our service lines we believe we are well positioned across the markets we serve, and the macro-economic position is likely to remain broadly supportive. We’re very positive about the future.”
Mr Brennan also announced that the firm had recently agreed terms to remain in its current offices in the heart of Dublin’s central business district on Harcourt Street.
“With digitisation and new hybrid working arrangements, law firms now need less office space than before, so our plans for growth can be accommodated within the 50,000sq ft we now occupy on Harcourt Street,” he said.
“Given local city-centre amenities we believe it still makes sense for us to maintain a substantial city-centre office location, and this location will continue to be an asset when it comes to recruiting new staff and serving our clients.”
In recent months the group has advised on the €1 billion exit of Mainstream Renewable Power, the €45 million sale of AdaptiveMobile Security to listed Swedish telecoms software firm Inea, and the $200 million investment round led by Bond in BrowserStack.
