About Conor

Conor works in our Banking & Finance Department, specialising in all areas of Banking & Financial Services.  He has gained unique legal and commercial experience working with various financial institutions during the most turbulent period for the banking sector in the history of the State.

Conor spent a number of years in the Banking and Financial Services Department of an international Law Firm in Dublin.  He has dealt with issues from the recession – such as enforcement actions and loan sales for lenders exiting the market – but also new lending for pillar banks and acting for new lenders entering the market.

Conor obtained a Degree in Commerce for UCD and worked in banking before completing his training contract with a busy general practice in Dublin. Post qualification, he worked as an in-house solicitor in a number of financial institutions, gaining excellent commercial experience before transferring back into private practice.
