Law firm Holmes O’Malley Sexton creates 10 jobs in Cork
HOLMES O’Malley Sexton is set to create 10 jobs with the opening of its new office in Cork.
The roles are being established in the areas of administration and legal and will be created over the next 18 months by the law firm.
The expansion of offices is expected to further strengthen the firm’s position across the various legal sectors in Ireland.
Managing Partner Harry Fehily said Holmes O’Malley Sexton has “a strong footprint of indigenous and multinational clients”.
“As Ireland’s fastestgrowing city and region, Cork is an important base for our firm and where we already have a significant client base,” he said.
The new office at the city’s South Mall will be headed up by partner John Ringrose.
Holmes O’Malley Sexton has offices in Dublin, Limerick and London and employs more than 150 people in Ireland.
Welcoming the jobs announcement yesterday, Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney said: “Holmes O’Malley Sexton have a very strong reputation in Ireland and their presence in Cork will undoubtedly lead to more professional opportunities for graduates in the years ahead.”
Established in 1970, the company last year extended its reach outside Ireland for the first time when it set up an office in London.
The firm uses its London office to offer advice to UK businesses considering opening an office in Ireland, as well as better serving its current Irish and UK clients located there.
