William Fry to launch new London office


Irish corporate law firm William Fry is set to open a new London office.

The company previously held an office in the capital, however, it was closed back in 1998; the new offices will be located at Heron Tower, Bishopsgate.

Stephen Keogh, senior corporate partner at William Fry will head up the office. He stated that having an office in the UK made sense for the company as its representatives regularly travel to the UK, the has reported.

“I am looking forward to strengthening our existing relationships in the UK and developing new ones. We will continue to work closely with companies doing business in Ireland and with UK advisors who have clients with Irish projects,” Mr Keogh stated.

He concluded by adding: “Many sections of the Irish economy are well-posed to make a strong recovery or indeed are already thriving. Our goal is to provide quality, business-focused, Irish legal and tax advice to international businesses who wish to capitalise on these opportunities.”

Additionally managing partner, Myra Garrett, commented: “This is a very exciting move for us. We have been active on the ground in London for a decade and the volume of business particularly from international companies and firms looking to do business in Ireland is such that it makes sense for us to have a permanent base in the UK.”
