In brief: Pastures new for McCann Fitzgerald

Irish firm McCann Fitzgerald has opened a new office in the City, 10 years after becoming the first Irish law firm to open an office in London. The office, in Lombard Street, has two full-time resident partners, John Cronin and Barbara Judge. “Our success is principally due to the success of Irish corporates and banks in doing business in the UK,” said Cronin.
