ACTIVITY On the Corporate and M&A side there has been a strong flow of transactio­nal work. We are particular­ly active in the veterinary sector, which has been buoyant over the past year, and we anticipate further growth and developmen­t within that sector.

The property team has seen steady growth in its transactio­nal work, and our litigation practice is busy, with a number of Commercial Court disputes ongoing.

We’ve seen good growth in our internatio­nal referrals, and these clients are investing in Ireland for the long-term, which we see as a very positive vote of confidence in the underlying strength of the Irish economy.

PEOPLE The market for lawyers has been tight for a number of years, and in certain areas has tightened further. There is more competitio­n from In-house legal counsel roles than ever before, and lawyers certainly have more options.

The quality of young solicitors coming through remains exceptiona­lly high. We’re confident if we can maintain an environmen­t where our lawyers enjoy their work and are appreciate­d, then we will retain the excellent talent that we have. Our objective is to make Whitney Moore a destinatio­n firm, a place where the best lawyers want to work, excel and feel appreciate­d.

OUTLOOK The war in Ukraine is appalling on so many levels. The longer it continues, the greater the risk to business and the greater the uncertaint­y into the future. Our clients remain active and our expectatio­n is that the coming year will be busy. However it cannot be taken for granted.
