Ius Laboris UK Lewis Silkin to launch Dublin office with the hire of local employment lawyers

The new office launches with the hire of leading Irish employment law specialists Siobhra Rush, who joins as Partner, and Linda Hynes, who joins as Managing Associate. Supported by London-based colleagues Sean Dempsey, Catherine Hayes and David Hopper, the Dublin office will focus on the provision of Irish and international employment law services as well as supporting clients with business immigration needs in addition to workplace data protection compliance.

Michael Burd, Chair and employment law partner at Lewis Silkin, commented:

“Launching in Dublin capitalises on a real opportunity for Lewis Silkin to not only further build on the existing scale and breadth of our employment practice, but also to expand our role within Ius Laboris. We look forward to contributing to and participating in the local business community in Dublin, while continuing to develop the world’s leading global HR law offering through both Ius Laboris and our wider network of offices in the UK and Hong Kong.”

James Davies, Divisional Managing Partner of Lewis Silkin’s Employment, Immigration and Reward Division, added:

“Ireland has become an important jurisdiction for our clients across many different sectors in the wake of Brexit - in particular with regard to employment and data privacy. We are therefore pleased to be able to offer our clients Irish employment advice going forward.”
