Leadership

Each transaction or assignment is led by one leader, who is fully involved on a day-today basis in all aspects. This provides a simplified approach to updating and advising clients, generating an efficient and co-ordinated reporting system.

Bernard McEvoy, Managing Partner

What our
clients say

Bernard McEvoy has been the principal corporate lawyer for 30 years for the group of companies set up in 162 Clontarf Road in Dublin. We have grown together in experience and knowledge. The range of activities covered has stretched far and wide reflecting the diverse nature of our mineral and hydrocarbon exploration ventures and a growing whiskey distillery business. Bernard has advised and led the legal team on over 12 AIM listings in London, takeovers and acquisitions and corporate control battles.

His counsel and advise, not always what we want to hear, had been very valuable. We are very happy and comfortable working with him. 

John Teeling, Chairman, Great Northern Distillery

We are an Irish Public Company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. I am consistently impressed with the practical approach and commercial sense brought by the team at McEvoy Corporate Law to all of the transactions we have been party to over the last number of years. Their teamwork and speed of response has been essential in enabling us to execute complex and detailed documents and agreements. I think that it has been their commercial minded attitude backed by strong professional legal advice that impressed me most.

Gerry Madden, CEO, EQTEC PLC

I have worked with Bernard both on national and international transactions over the last ten years.  At all times I have found him to be practical and commercial with an unique ability to identify the key elements of transactions and to negotiate these in a no-nonsense client friendly manner.

McEvoy Corporate Law was recommended to us to assist in the legal provision for a new joint venture. Their professionalism and legal skill set complimented by strong communication and personal service resulted in successful completion of a complicated contract and since then have worked with us in company acquisitions in the UK and Ireland. Their client focus and practical approach make McEvoy Corporate Law our chosen legal service partner.
