Leading corporate law firm Arthur Cox has appointed three new Associates to its expanding Corporate and Commercial Department in Belfast.

The new hires include Madison Bowyer, Megan Ryans and Jordan Taggart, each of whom have successfully completed the Firm’s market leading trainee programme.

Their appointments come as the Corporate and Commercial Department experiences continued strong demand both locally and from international clients.

It provides advice to many of the Region’s best-known businesses and works on some of the most high-profile and complex deals and transactions involving Northern Ireland-based entities

Lynsey Mallon, Partner and Head of the Corporate and Commercial Department said:

“It has been another incredibly busy year for our Corporate and Commercial practice as we continue to grow our wide client base comprising organisations across the public, private and third sectors.

“As a firm, we have a reputation for providing pragmatic and trusted advice to those clients, and I am thrilled to welcome our three new Associates who I know will only strengthen that reputation.

“It is particularly pleasing that Madison, Megan and Jordan have come through our trainee programme, in which we invest a significant amount of time and resource.

“Each of them has already made a significant impact, adding real value as they work with Partners to provide outstanding service and strategic counsel.”

Arthur Cox’s Corporate and Commercial Department was among the busiest in Northern Ireland over the past year.

It was involved in a wide range of deals including working with Re-Vana Therapeutics as it successfully raised $11.9 million in a Series A funding round and advising logistics giant DFDS on its agreement to purchase McBurney Transport for a multi-million-pound sum.

Meanwhile, applications remain open until 27th October for students wishing to join the next tranche of Arthur Cox’s trainee programme in Belfast.
