Ireland office is the first step for legal firm’s expansion into Irish and international business
A Tully Rinckey Dublin office is the first step in Founding Partner Mathew B. Tully’s vision of becoming the go-to legal services firm for Irish and international businesses. With the help of Ireland’s inward investment promotion agency, the IDA, Tully Rinckey’s Dublin office will serve as the platform for the global expansion of the firm throughout the European Union and beyond. The firm plans to eventually open several additional offices, in Galway, Cork and Limerick, to specifically service the legal needs of Ireland’s regional enterprises. This will be followed by the opening of other offices throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
The Dublin office will offer business clients, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, a gateway to establishing themselves in Europe and the United States. The Dublin office will be connected to Tully Rinckey’s international network, through a high-tech voice and video conferencing system that produces instant communication capabilities from Dublin to San Diego.
Speaking of the move to Ireland, Tully said:
The initial concept was to put a 1-2 solicitor operation in Dublin to service our existing American clients looking to open or expand to Ireland. This soon morphed, based on market research, into creating a separate law firm in Dublin with service operations based in Cork and Galway. The goal is to expand into other markets in Ireland and service not only American clients setting up in Ireland but Irish clients looking to expand into the US.
