A&L Goodbody LLP 

May, 2011 - Dublin, Ireland


Appointment - New York Resident Partner


I am delighted to announce the expansion of our practice in the United States with the appointment of Cian McCourt as resident partner in New York. Cian will, along with other members of the Firm's US Group based in Ireland further develop the Firm's service to US clients.

US corporations and the wider US business community have been key clients for many years and play an important role in the Irish economy. We were the first Irish law firm to open an office in the US and since the 1970's have acted for more than 500 US corporations.

Through our New York office we look forward to further developing our close relationships with this important market and highlighting the opportunities that Ireland offers to the international business community.

A&L Goodbody's US Inward Investment Group also includes John Coman, Aidan Browne (Inward Investment); David Widger, John Given (Corporate); Peter Maher, James Somerville (Tax); Catherine Duffy, Séamus Ó'Cróinín (Financial Services); David Baxter, Mark Traynor (Restructuring); John Whelan, John Cahir (Technology & Pharma); Brian McDermott, Michael Barr (Investment Funds); and James Grennan, Margaret Stack (Insurance).

Cian is a very highly regarded Corporate Partner and we believe that this announcement further demonstrates our commitment to our US and other international clients. Cian specialises in public and private M&A, securities laws, equity capital markets and he is also experienced in the financial services, pharma and renewable energy sectors.

His experience includes acting on transactions for Elan Corporation plc, Ryanair, Trintech Group plc, Bord Gais, Abbott Medical Optics, Allergan, Bank of Ireland, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, UBS, Citi, Morgan Stanley, Barclays and Irish Life & Permanent.

Cian was based in the Firm's London office from 2004 - 2007 where he advised international clients on their activities in Ireland and international law firms, investment banks and other advisors on multi-jurisdictional transactions with an Irish dimension.

For further information contact Cian McCourt, myself or your usual A&L Goodbody Partner.
