The Republic of Ireland’s lawyers are in an ebullient mood, and they are talking big. Not so long ago, the market’s capacity to house more than three or four full-service firms was limited – the same old names were dominating the deal tables and the headlines.

The biggest firms do still sit comfortably at the top of the deal tables, but there are a handful of ambitious, smaller firms knocking at the door, aided by the growth of key clients.
