Commercial Law

Lavelle Partners is one of Dublin’s most dynamic and established law firms, and we have been advising Irish and international businesses for many decades. 

We are a leading European Legal 500 firm and have received awards for our experience, knowledge, and client service from Finance Monthly and Corporate INTL.

Gríana O’Kelly leads our corporate and commercial team.  She has extensive corporate and commercial law experience, including successfully advising buyers and sellers in M&A transactions in the healthcare and technology sectors, and advising international clients who wish to base their headquarters or entities in Ireland.  The European Legal 500 states that she shows “great attention to detail”, which can be seen through her strong track record of advising clients on matters such as deriving investment funding, share capital restructuring, acquisition and disposal of businesses, and intellectual property.

As a team, we are focused on our client’s success and take the time to understand what this means for them.  We don’t do “off the shelf law”, instead, we work to discover your ambitions and tailor the strategies required to achieve them, on time and on budget.

As a full service corporate and commercial law firm, our departments closely collaborate to ensure all transactions are successfully completed while meeting all corporate requirements.  Gríana and her team work with our employment, banking, intellectual property and data protection departments, meaning we can advise you across every aspect of your business as it grows and evolves.

Our corporate and commercial team advise on a wide range of matters and transactions including:

  • Commercial Contracts
  • Corporate Governance
  • Investment and funding for business
  • Intellectual property
  • Data protection
  • Foreign direct investment.

What our clients say

‘Lavelle Partners bring a very partner led and hands on approach to transactions which is why I like using them.’

The Legal 500, 2022

‘Direct and prompt access to the “right” person in the practice was a major feature of the process, particularly as we did not have any internal experience of the process. Lavelle Partners provided us with the advice and comfort we needed to complete the same.’

The Legal 500, 2022

‘Great breadth of expertise. If a particular partner doesn’t have the expertise then effective handover to the appropriate partner who does. Very much a can-do attitude.’

The Legal 500, 2022

‘The process was lead by Griana O’Kelly who led her team at all times. It was also very comforting to see that Griana had full oversight of the complete process and her five colleagues who complemented each other in delivering a comprehensive and complete conclusion to the process.’

The Legal 500, 2022

‘Griana O’Kelly is very good to deal with and she is very efficient in getting transactions closed.’

The Legal 500, 2022

‘Griana O’Kelly has great listening skills, really makes sure she understands the brief before launching into the work … also very open to client input at the drafting stage so that legals reflect the nuances of the commercial arrangements agreed.’
