Sector - Investing in Ireland


Establishing and running a company in Ireland is relatively straightforward, due to the government’s appetite for encouraging foreign direct investment and a recently introduced Companies Act (2014) that is fit for purpose.

Our Corporate Department is central to the business philosophy of the firm and provides expert and comprehensive advice to those thinking about investing in Ireland.

With commercial focus and technical ability in all aspects of corporate transactions, we advise private and public companies across a range of business sectors. We aim to provide solution-driven advice to achieve the objectives of our clients.

BHSM represent a broad spectrum of business sectors and advise on a full range of domestic and international transactions, including mergers and acquisitions; joint ventures; private equity investments; fundraisings and corporate restructures. In particular, our Department provides specialist advice in the area of technology, innovation and intellectual property and deals extensively with businesses in the healthcare and life sciences sector.

We provide corporate governance advice to directors and shareholders regarding company law and regulatory matters.

We advise both commercial entities and not-for-profit organisations on governance and compliance obligations. We endeavour to understand our clients’ businesses, while our flexible and accessible approach ensures results for our clients.

Our Corporate Department collaborates closely with our Firm’s other Departments, providing support and advice on corporate issues that arise across property, litigation and insolvency matters.
