Arthur Cox’s Belfast office was established in 1996 for the purpose of providing a unique and high quality service for clients carrying on business in Northern Ireland. The practice provides a full-service offering and is recognized by all major listings as one of the foremost corporate and commercial practices in Northern Ireland, and the firm of choice for multinationals and inward investors to the region. With 13 partners and about 100 staff in total, the Belfast office has grown rapidly in recent years to meet the requirements of its national and international client base.
One of Northern Ireland’s largest firms in its own right, Arthur Cox’s Belfast practice also has the full backup of the firm’s broader resources across Dublin, London, New York and Silicon Valley, and is accordingly in a position to draw upon the widest range of specialist services. The principal practice areas of the firm are: corporate/commercial; banking and financial services; litigation and dispute resolution; real estate; competition and European Union law; employment law; projects and project finance; and telecommunications.
For 2015, The Legal 500 awarded Arthur Cox’s Belfast office more top-tier recommendations than any other firm in the jurisdiction.
