Tully Rinckey this week held an inaugural reception at Stephens Green Hibernian Club to celebrate the first step in their international expansion plans with the opening of their Dublin office.
As of July 4, 2018, Tully Rinckey has been approved to commence the practice of law by the Law Society of Ireland. This is the first step of a long-term investment focused on the international diversification of the firm’s markets and practice areas.
Dublin is the stepping stone to 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, IDA Ireland, Tully Rinckey’s Dublin office will serve as the platform for the global expansion of the firm throughout the European Union, and beyond.
Tully Rinckey Ireland has committed to hire 38 employees over the next three years. The firm plans to open offices in Galway, Limerick and Cork, 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.
Tully Rinckey’s Dublin office will focus primarily on international business matters including labor and employment regulations, intellectual property prosecution and licensing, international trade, international tax laws, corporate real estate, mergers and acquisitions, and more.
Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I am delighted to welcome Tully Rinckey as they formally launch their presence here in Dublin. This illustrates Ireland’s growing status as an international legal centre. It also demonstrates that Ireland’s common law English-speaking jurisdiction, allied with our well-respected courts system, is helping to attract international legal services providers in what is a rapidly evolving global marketplace. They will be a welcome addition for both indigenous and multinational clients based in Ireland."
