Law firm ByrneWallace has said it plans to hire 100 professional staff members over the next two years.

The company said it is experiencing strong growth cross the board.

Managing partner, Feargal Brennan said while demand for its advisory and transaction services remains strong, it also expects many of the new roles will be needed to meet increased demand in areas such as information and data management, cybercrime, tax, and infrastructural development.

Mr Brennan said that the firm's medium-term plan would see ByrneWallace double in size in the next five years.

"I expect our current headcount of 300 to increase to over 600 in the next five years.

"Given the depth of our service lines we believe we are well positioned across the markets we serve, and the macro-economic position is likely to remain broadly supportive," Mr Brennan said.

"We’re very positive about the future," he added.

Mr Brennan also announced that the firm has recently agreed terms to remain in its current offices on Dublin's Harcourt Street, on the basis the firm will need the entirety of its office space to meet its growth plans.

"The opportunity to stay or go came at an interesting time," he said.

"With digitization and new hybrid working arrangements, law firms now need less office space than before so our plans for growth can be accommodated within the 50,000 square feet we now occupy on Harcourt Street.

"Given local city centre amenities we believe it still makes sense for us to maintain a substantial city centre office location and this location will continue to be an asset when it comes to recruiting new staff and serving our clients," he added.

ByrneWallace employs more than 180 lawyers and other professionals with a total headcount of over 300.

In recent months the firm has advised on transactions which include the €1 billion exit of Mainstream Renewable Power, the €45m sale of AdaptiveMobile Security to listed Swedish telecoms software firm Inea and the US$200m investment round led by BOND in BrowserStack.
