The progressive firm, which has just been named Munster Law Firm of the Year and Connaught Law Firm of the Year at the Danske Bank Irish Law Awards 2013, has already appointed five new solicitors in Cork within the last six months.
By the end of 2014, RDJ will employ 170 people between its Cork and Galway offices.
The firm’s growth to date has necessitated a move, on 20th May, from 12 South Mall to larger, more bespoke premises at City Gate Park, Mahon, Cork to accommodate the expanding practice, as Richard Martin recently appointed Managing Partner explained:
“With 150 staff, including 21 partners, we have outgrown our existing offices and need to prepare for future development and expansion. By laying the foundations now we can maximise further job creation opportunities and continue to grow the business.”
Despite a challenging economy, RDJ continues to develop a thriving national and international client-base across four principal area of expertise: Corporate & Commercial (including Tax, IT and IP); Commercial Litigation (including media, professional indemnity and product liability); Property & Banking and General Litigation.
“Innovation has been key to our success to date,” said Richard Martin. “We are a solutions-driven firm, always anticipating opportunities and challenges for our clients so we view the recruitment of experienced solicitors in specialist areas as essential to our on-going success and strategic development.”
The new offices at City Gate Park will provide the firm with 7,000 additional square feet of office space, as well as a theatre-style conference and training room to facilitate hosting of in-house client seminars. The firm also has an option to take additional space within the building at a later date.
In addition to its Cork corporate headquarters, RDJ has an office in Galway where the firm employs 30 people.
