New Look, Same Firm!

September 2017

Whitney Moore has been in practice for over 135 years and has continued to display the adaptability, quality and focus that has ensured its relevance over that time.  The firm’s recent rebranding reflects the traditional heritage of such a long-established law firm and its on-going drive towards expansion and development.  In the past year Whitney Moore has increased its workforce by 15% to anticipate the needs of its clients and consolidate its position as a leading Irish law firm.  Two recent partner appointments, Emma Richmond and Robin Hayes bring the number of partners to 17 and reflect our confidence in the Irish economy and our desire to continually improve the expertise we offer to our clients.   Emma is a partner in our Employment, Pensions and Immigration team and Robin is a partner in our Intellectual Property and Dispute Resolution teams. With effect from 1 July 2017, John Lynch, partner in our Dispute Resolution  and Employment, Pensions and Immigration teams became the firm’s new managing partner, taking over from Stephen Walker who finished two consecutive terms.

Whitney Moore is highly regarded by clients and peers alike as a law firm with a culture of providing consistently high quality legal advice promptly, efficiently and cost-effectively.  It is consistently recommended by international legal journals such as The Legal 500 EMEA, Chambers Europe and Chambers Global.  Clients like that the lawyers “have a personal touch, work quickly together and offer broad, in-depth knowledge.”  Clients also say that the lawyers are “very responsive, pragmatic and solution-driven.”  (Chambers Europe 2017).
