Partner Jeanne-Marie Moriarty joins firm to lead new team

International law firm, Addleshaw Goddard LLP has announced the expansion of its Dublin office with the launch of a new Financial Services and Regulation practice.

The firm has recruited Partner Jeanne-Marie Moriarty to lead the team, which will support clients operating within a rapidly changing regulatory environment.  Addleshaw Goddard advises clients on all aspects of financial regulation such as retail/consumer financial services, payments and financial markets, including many complex EU and Irish financial regulatory regimes, and the three pillars of CBI regulatory focus - authorisation, supervision and enforcement. 

The new practice area, together with the support of the wider Addleshaw Goddard UK and European Financial Regulation teams, significantly enhances Addleshaw Goddard’s expertise advising existing and prospective businesses in Ireland on the impact of evolving legislation, regulation, and market frameworks. 

Jeanne-Marie gained significant in-house experience from her previous roles leading the legal functions of Bank of Ireland Private Banking Ltd, and Bank of Ireland Insurance & Investments Ltd, and more recently as the Head of Litigation, and the Principal Lawyer, Regulation and Funds, for Bank of Ireland Group. Prior to this she was Head of Legal for Aon Consulting. 

Jeanne-Marie joins from Dublin-based law firm Beauchamps LLP, where she was a Partner in Financial Services and Regulation. A qualified Barrister and Solicitor, she specialises in the implementation, application and on-going governance of complex regulatory change initiatives within the financial services sector, whilst also having a wealth of commercial and practical experience on both the non-contentious and contentious areas of CBI regulatory focus.

"We are thrilled to welcome Jeanne-Marie to Addleshaw Goddard," said Mark Walsh, Head of Ireland, Addleshaw Goddard. "Establishing a Financial Services and Regulation practice in Dublin represents the evolution of the firm as we continue in our commitment to expanding and enhancing our offering within the financial services sector. 

Jeanne-Marie Moriarty, Head of Financial Services and Regulation, Addleshaw Goddard Ireland, said: “I am delighted to have joined Addleshaw Goddard to lead the firm’s Financial Services and Regulation practice in Ireland. The financial services sector is facing regulatory change at a faster pace than ever before and I am looking forward to providing clients with expert, practical and commercial advice on how they can understand and navigate this increasingly complex regulatory environment.” 

In addition to Jeanne-Marie in Dublin, Addleshaw Goddard have also recently added to their regulatory bench strength across the UK and Europe, with new hires in London, Paris, and Frankfurt.
