Clark Hill mentioned in Fairfax Associates 2019 Recap
Clark Hill was mentioned by Fairfax Associates in its 2019 review article, “A Robust Year for Law Firm Mergers in 2019.”
The article mentions Clark Hill’s combination with Irish firm O’Gradys in 2019, which expanded the firm’s Dublin office and increased the number of solicitors to 19.
“Ireland is the logical choice for our first expansion into Europe”, Clark Hill CEO John Hern said at the time of the merger in February 2019. “It has the fastest growing economy in the EU, while the EU itself is the second largest economy in the world. It is a very attractive destination for large numbers of the world’s leading businesses, and so developing a significant presence there is an obvious step for us.”
