Richard Marron, Associate, Corporate & M&A

I trained at a Magic Circle firm in London and qualified into the Corporate team there. When I decided to move back to Ireland, I was looking for a firm that provides top quality work, has a supportive culture and encourages development as a lawyer. I met with a number of A&L Goodbody partners and was impressed by their dynamic and outward focus and their determination to continuously strengthen the firm's leading market position.

There is a genuine commitment to being at the cutting edge of the profession, both in terms of legal expertise and the management of the firm and its people. Ideas and initiatives, whether relating to legal work, business development, practice management or CSR, are encouraged and fully supported. In particular, the firm invests heavily in training and developing its people. The work has been interesting and varied and almost every transaction I've been involved in has had an international element.
