Banking, Insurance & Financial Services


Market trauma and continuing transformation; national and international regulatory reforms; unique economic uncertainties and impediments, this has been the daily panorama for the Irish banking, insurance and broader financial services industry since 2009 or so. The environment has presented multiple strategic and operational challenges and opportunities for the sector.

During this time we have been working with most of Ireland's national and international banks, insurance corporations and financial institutions as they examine their business models, face up to State aid issues, manage their balance sheets, undertake complex acquisitions or disposals, raise capital, manage liquidity, face down litigation, seize market opportunities and adapt to the new regulatory regime. In many cases, we have delivered innovative structures or advice to facilitate urgent and unprecedented change.

We continue to be at the epicentre of Ireland's banking and financial markets and are working with many market participants as they shape their future.

There are few Irish firms that can match the quality of our people, the market breadth of our clients, our national and international track record, our integrated all island offering and the top tier position we hold across all of the key financial institutional sectors. Our expertise in the finance sector goes well beyond advising financial institutions as they adjust to the market challenges. We continuously lead the market with our expertise in financial products, transactions and structures, particularly those with an international aspect.

The breadth of our services includes:

  • syndicated lending
  • structured finance
  • debt and equity capital markets
  • project finance
  • asset finance (and in particular aircraft finance)
  • insolvency and restructuring
  • enforcement
  • dispute resolution
  • financial regulatory advice

Our Mergers & Acquisitions & Corporate team tops the table in terms of the number of financial institution deals over the last decade while our market leading Insurance & Reinsurance and Asset Management & Investment Funds teams have each led their markets since the 1980s.

We believe that our track record, the latitude of our network and our unique breadth of knowledge and experience right across the financial institution sector brings our clients significant competitive advantage.

“A&L Goodbody continues to lead the way......with a team that is praised as being at the very top in every way - service, experience, flexibility, innovation.”
