Matheson opens Cork office

Matheson Cork 100x90

Matheson has opened a new office in Cork, Ireland to expand its reach to clients based in the Munster region. This is a break with convention for major Irish law firms, which are traditionally concentrated in Dublin.

Gráinne Callanan, a senior lawyer in the firm’s corporate division, will lead the Cork office. She specialises in corporate governance and financial services. Callanan has more than 14 years of experience, in which time she also worked for health insurance company Aviva. Regulatory compliance and insurance products remain one of her strong points.

The firm’s strategy is to target domestic and international clients based in Cork, spanning such sectors as life sciences, biotechnology, finance and cybersecurity. The American Chamber of Commerce has a large number of companies operating in Cork, and Matheson acts on behalf of more than 60% of those businesses.

Matheson expects the Cork office to play an important role in the future. Not only is Cork projected to be Ireland’s fastest growing city over the next 20 years, but the prospects of Brexit may also make the city a more attractive location for UK-based businesses seeking a presence in the European Union.
