Leading Irish law firm, Comyn Kelleher Tobin (CKT), has announced the appointment of two new partners to their corporate and healthcare practices. Despite the challenging economic climate over the past decade in Ireland, the practice has experienced continuous growth across its Cork and Dublin offices.
The appointment of new partners, Alison Kelleher and Hilda O’Keeffe, comes as the Dublin office looks to relocate to larger offices in Ormond Quay later in 2017. CKT opened new offices on George’s Quay, Cork in March 2016.
Alison Kelleher has been promoted to Partner in the Healthcare Department. Having joined CKT in 2015, she previously practiced in Dublin and London with leading firm Weightmans LLP. Alison is a CEDR Accredited Mediator, with extensive experience in resolving complex health and social care disputes on behalf of leading indemnifiers and public bodies.
Hilda O’Keeffe has joined the firm as Partner, having previously held the position of University Solicitor with University College Cork. Hilda managed the team of legal advisors to the University for eight years. She provided strategic advice and practical legal solutions on commercial, corporate, intellectual property and collaborative projects involving State and multinational partners, in addition to litigation and administrative law matters. Hilda brings a wealth of experience having previously worked in a large commercial practice in Dublin.
Commenting on the announcement, Debbie Moore, Managing Partner, CKT, said:
“I’m delighted to announce these senior appointments at the CKT partnership. We continue to invest strongly in our people to support the delivery of the best service possible to our clients. Our firm continues to grow, particularly across our Corporate and Healthcare practice areas, in order to meet the developing needs of our client base throughout Ireland.”
