Data Centres

Data centres have become strategically important for a rapidly growing number of businesses, as reliance on technology and the ongoing need to access information has now become a necessity for most companies.

Combining industry leading expertise, our team of advisors are fully immersed in the sector, not only understanding the legal issues across multi-jurisdictions but also having a deep understanding of the environment in which our data centre clients operate in.

Our Data Centres team comprises specialists from multiple practice groups including Projects & Infrastructure, Environmental & Planning, Commercial Property, Construction and Commercial & Technology. They have extensive experience advising international clients on the development, acquisition, financing and operation of data centres in Ireland.

Our in-depth market knowledge enables us to advise across multi-faceted aspects of data centre development, from energy regulatory matters, grid connections and electricity supply arrangements to advising multi-national corporations on the management of European data through Ireland and Irish subsidiaries, including the legal and regulatory advantages of doing so.
