Related Topics

Walkers, the legal and management services provider, says it will be creating a significant number of jobs in Ireland as the firm further expands its Dublin office which opened in October.

Approximately 25 new positions will be created by the end of 2010, rising to around 50 new jobs by the end of 2011.

"We are committed to developing a strong presence in Dublin with experienced top tier Irish lawyers and professionals, providing them with the opportunity to grow the Irish corporate business through our global network," says Vicki Hazelden, managing partner of Walkers’ Dublin office.

"We are excited about our expansion in Ireland which is a very desirable location for international financial services. The International Financial Services Centre has been a beacon of strength for the economy and has benefited from a very broad network of global tax treaties and the maintenance of the 12.5 per cent corporation tax rate which we are pleased to see is part of the Government’s four year national recovery plan."

Initially opening in Dublin in October 2010 with capability in investment funds, asset finance, structured finance and corporate administration, Walkers has since added a taxation practice to its suite of services, which will be followed in early 2011 with a series of recruits in corporate, insurance, regulatory and listing services, as its expansion continues.
