Lewis Silkin to launch Dublin branch, following trend
Lewis Silkin has become the latest firm to launch a branch in Dublin, a move that has become a trend as firms prepare for Brexit.
In support of the launch, Lewis Silkin has hired as a partner Siobhra Rush, who is currently a senior associate at Leman Solicitors. Joining the firm as a managing associate is Linda Hynes.
Lewis Silkin follows behind Simmons & Simmons, whose new Dublin office opened just months ago. The latter firm announced its plan to expand to Dublin in the wake of Covington & Burling’s confirmation of its investment in Ireland.
Other firms launching or strengthening their Dublin practices in the last year include Pinsent Masons, Kennedys, and Dechert.
