McCann FitzGerald LLP Partners named as exclusive winners at 2022 Lexology Client Choice Awards

McCann FitzGerald LLP Partners Fiona O’Beirne and Kevin Kelly have been named as exclusive winners for Ireland at the 2022 Lexology Client Choice Awards, announced this week in London.

Established in 2005, the Lexology Client Choice awards recognise law firms and partners around the world that stand out for excellence in client care and quality of service. This year’s awards received over 2,500 nominations, with law firms and partners being nominated by corporate counsel.

Fiona was recognised for her exemplary work in litigation in Ireland, where she has practised for over 25 years in commercial litigation and dispute resolution. Fiona is a key adviser to both international and domestic clients on patent litigation and other intellectual property disputes. She also specialises in large-scale commercial litigation, with a focus on complex international, regulatory and banking disputes. Fiona and the wider McCann FitzGerald litigation team have very recently been recognised as European Litigation Team of the Year at The Lawyer European Awards, 2021.

Kevin was recognised for his work in the construction sector in Ireland. As Head of McCann FitzGerald’s Construction Group, Kevin advises a range of public and private sector clients in relation to contract structures and drafting, contract administration and disputes and entitlements, including at court, mediation, arbitration, adjudication and conciliation. 

Commenting on the awards, Stephen Holst, Managing Partner, McCann FitzGerald LLP, said: “I’m immensely proud of Fiona, Kevin and their wider teams for receiving this well-deserved recognition for the outstanding work they do in supporting our clients. The strength of our firm is our people, who work tirelessly to go above and beyond for our clients, often working in complex and challenging areas of law.  Our litigation and construction practices continue to go from strength to strength and I thank my colleagues for their continued dedication to providing excellent service.”
