Announcing the appointments, Managing Partner Brian O’Gorman said “the promotions are from a broad spectrum of practice areas and reflect the depth of talent in Arthur Cox. I am delighted to welcome the new partners, who will each play a role in the development of the firm and ensure that we continue to evolve and deliver the highest quality advice to our clients.

We have appointed 17 new partners since 2016, ten of whom are women. Gender diversity is a core business issue for us. Today, 33% of the firm’s partners are women. We are making real progress but we are not complacent. Diversity continues to be a key focus for the firm.
