McCann FitzGerald Wins Three Major Awards at Benchmark Litigation Awards 2019

McCann FitzGerald was delighted to win three awards at the Benchmark Litigation Europe Awards in London last night, including “Irish Firm of the Year” and “Commercial & Transactions Firm of the Year”, beating off competition from across Europe.   The firm was recognised in the “Impact Disputes Case of the Year” category for its important role advising the US Government on the ground-breaking litigation involving the Data Protection Commission, Facebook and Austrian privacy campaigner Max Schrems. 

Speaking on the award win, Barry Devereux, Managing Partner of McCann FitzGerald said;

“This is a fantastic achievement for the firm, and evidence of our market-leading litigation practice. Our firm continues to grow strongly internationally, this week announcing the appointment of partners in our New York, London and Brussels offices as well as Dublin. These awards show the scale and complexity of the work we are doing and the results we are achieving for clients.”
