Corporate titan A&L Goodbody has long been respected for its IP capabilities. The trademark team is well integrated within the firm’s wider commercial practice and demonstrates a refined understanding of the business of brands. High-profile disputes and transactional projects fall squarely within the remit of the Dublin unit, whose central pillars are John Whelan and John Cahir. As head of the commercial and technology group, Whelan has been involved in some of the most significant IP cases which have come before the Irish courts; he also established the firm’s offices in San Francisco and Palo Alto. Cahir’s deft handling of contentious and commercial IP matters has made him a favourite of domestic companies and multinational corporations alike. Both are also noted authorities on data privacy law and technology.
