Home / Expertise / Technology And Innovation

We have a large body of domestic and international clients who share a common purpose – they expect highly commercial, responsive and solution-focused advice from a team of partners and associates offering a premier level of experience and expertise within the Irish market.

Lawyers from our Technology and Innovation Group are especially active in our international practice where we enjoy a particularly rich heritage. We have been privileged to advise many US technology companies establishing and scaling their businesses from a base within Ireland. We also advise these clients in relation to ongoing legal compliance in key areas such as data protection and export control.  Our client base also includes some of Ireland’s largest and fastest growing domestic technology companies.
