Julian Yarr, Managing Partner at ALG, said: "What makes this award so special is that it reflects the outstanding work we've done for our clients on some of Ireland's most important and complex mandates. The last 18 months have been unprecedented with the challenges of the pandemic combined with a buoyant market. But our business has shown resilience and adaptability to support our clients through this time and into the future. That's down to the brilliant people we have and the extraordinary commitment they made to our clients and each other.
