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.
