Merger with Eugene F Collins sets a pattern

A top 20 UK law firm by size, Addleshaw Goddard (AG) arrived with a bang in Dublin this spring, extending its global footprint into Ireland through a combination with Eugene F Collins. Sharing the same core practice areas – litigation, property, corporate and banking – AG’s merger with one of Ireland’s top 20 law firms is certainly the biggest of its kind to date in the Irish market: 25 partners at the Dublin-based firm became part of the AG group, which has 300 partners across 16 offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The Dublin office continues a pattern of expansion for AG which launched in Paris in January 2021 and in Germany in June 2019. Weeks after arriving in Dublin, AG opened an office in Luxembourg to boost its funds finance practice. Announced in February and completed in March, the Irish merger had been two years in gestation.
