RDJ LLP‘s banking and finance team is largely located in Cork, though it is building its presence in Dublin where it hired Brian Quinn as a partner from Arthur Cox in January 2021; financial services regulatory partner Brian Hunt had previously joined the Dublin team from Zurich insurance. Along with a small team in Galway, the firm has developed strong connections to Ireland’s pillar banks and alternative lenders, particularly in the construction, technology and hospitality sectors, and in real estate development and acquisition financing. Cork partners Brendan Cunningham and Tom Fox are hugely experienced, particularly in property and development finance, as is Cian Fenton, who now leads many of the team’s headline engagements.
