McCann Fitzgerald said he had advised regulatory authorities, statutory bodies, local authorities and developers on the delivery of a wide range of local and national projects.

In recent years, he has advised on a number of projects across the State spanning the areas of energy, transport, water, wastewater and the agri-business sector. They include the Corrib gas project; the Luas Cross City; the Aviva Stadium; the incinerator at Duleek; and the redevelopment of RTÉ’s Montrose campus. Mr Slattery will take up his new role on May 1st.

McCann FitzGerald managing partner Barry Devereux said Mr Slattery would bring “vast experience and specialist knowledge in environmental and planning law”.

“Brendan’s appointment follows our recent announcement of a further six new partners and a consultant,” he said.

“Together, these appointments reflect the changes currently taking place in the legal profession that mean we must continue to improve and adapt our offering, while continuing to ensure the high levels of expertise and client service we are known for.”
