A&L Goodbody Sees Good Prospects in Construction Sector as it Hires New Partner

Irish law firm A&L Goodbody is adding to its construction team in Dublin with the appointment of Conor Owens as a new partner. The construction industry has seen a surge in activity over the last two years. This is mainly due to more favourable economic conditions in Ireland.

International construction consultant, Aecom, has predicted that the Irish construction industry will grow by 14% in 2018. Furthermore, the Irish government recently announced a ten year, €115 billion infrastructure upgrade programme as part of the 2018-2027 National Development Plan.

Commenting on the appointment, Julian Yarr, Managing Partner at A&L Goodbody, said: “We continue to develop our market leading construction team and I’m delighted to welcome Conor who brings a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. We see good prospects for the construction sector as the Irish economy continues to improve. This economic growth has a positive impact on investment in national infrastructure projects as well as increased activity in residential land development and commercial construction.”

Conor Owens specialises in contentious construction law, resolving disputes between construction parties through litigation, arbitration and mediation. He also provides non-contentious legal advice to construction firms such as the negotiation of building contracts, consultant appointments and sub-contracts.

A&L Goodbody’s specialist Construction team works very closely with other market leading teams in Projects & Infrastructure, Environmental & Planning and Commercial Property. Notable clients include:

AIB on the development funding of the Exo Building at the 3Arena, the new 17 storey office block in the Dublin Docklands.

* Target Investment Opportunities ICAV on the development of new headquarters for Grant Thornton in Dublin 2.

* BAM Building Ltd on the construction contract for the New Children’s Hospital.
