PARTNER MOVES - DWF builds real estate expertise in Dublin with new partner

22 Sep 2022

DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has appointed partner Órlaith Molloy to the expanding real estate team in Dublin. 

Órlaith's arrival into the global real estate team at DWF, which has offices across many international locations, follows an eight-year role at Arthur Cox where she was also a partner. She specialises in high value commercial real estate acting for investors, developers and lending institutions as well landlord and tenant matters. 

Órlaith delivers tailored advice to high-profile clients, including foreign investors, lending institutions, private companies and State-owned bodies, on a wide range of property-related matters, including acquisitions & disposals, pre-lets, forward purchases, high profile lease transactions, surrender negotiations and re-gearing, loan sales, corporate and finance transactions, and other property management issues.

Órlaith Molloy said: I am delighted to join DWF. The business has a very open-minded culture of innovation and a unique integrated approach, which creates an opportunity to offer a bespoke service to real estate businesses, and anyone involved in the real estate sector. I look forward to collaborating with colleagues across the business to develop our real estate offering in Ireland and beyond.

Órlaith's arrival also follows the recent promotion of insurance lawyer Sinéad Ryan to partner in the Dublin office, alongside several other promotions across the team.

Eimear Collins, managing partner of DWF in Dublin, said: I am thrilled to welcome Órlaith to the business, following so closely after the recent partner promotion of Sinéad Ryan.

Along with our two new partners, the Dublin office is growing and expanding in other progressive ways; we’ve introduced our Costs service in Ireland which is part of our Connected Services division, and we have recently launched our global ESG strategy which has ambitious carbon reduction targets and priorities to further improve the Group's diversity and inclusion.

Toby Askin, Global Head of Real Estate at DWF, said: Órlaith has exceptional experience and a broad network across Ireland's real estate sector. She is an outstanding addition to the business. As well as focussing on the Irish market, Órlaith will play a strong role in both our pan-European investment and our finance and restructuring teams.
