Sorry, we had a problem.
Led by Joanne Finn, our EU, competition and regulated markets team sits in our corporate and commercial department and is supported by Elaine Davis at senior associate level.
WHAT WE DO
Our team is experienced in advising clients across a broad range of sectors on all aspects of EU and Irish competition law. We work closely with clients in regulated markets including insurance, renewable energy, telecoms, health, construction and have increasingly found ourselves providing advice on trade matters arising from Brexit. The team also works with corporate colleagues in Ireland and the UK advising on mergers, joint ventures and asset acquisitions, from inception to completion.
Given the broad nature of our client base, we frequently work with colleagues in other areas of the firm in Ireland and internationally, fostering close relationships with DAC Beachcroft’s corporate, litigation/dispute resolution and projects/construction teams. Joanne Finn frequently advises on high value, complex litigation strategy, most recently in the financial services, health and technology sectors.
The team values long-term relationships with clients and advises a range of public sector clients on antitrust and State aid matters including on the complex balancing of market structure, State intervention and dominance. A key skill is advising clients on devising and implementing strategies which take into account wider economic and legal considerations and policy drivers.
Among the team's assets is its ability to deliver high-value strategic advices at board level in increasingly complex regulatory environments by finding practical and commercially-minded solutions tailored to each client's needs.
The team’s recent experience includes:
Joanne Finn joined DAC Beachcroft LLP to lead the firm's Dublin competition law team. She attracts attention for her experience in merger control, public procurement and state aid mandates. She also earns praise for her litigation skills. Clients say that she is "brilliant at grasping the complex nature of our situation." Chambers Europe, 2020
The team is "courteous, responsive and very knowledgeable." Chambers Europe, 2019
"They are interested in their clients. They want to provide the best solutions and they do go the extra mile in ensuring that you are happy." Chambers Europe, 2019

‘Joanne Finn is a "very smart, knowledgeable and well-rounded partner" Chambers Europe, 2018
"What sets Joanne Finn apart from many of her peers is her ability to build trusted relationships by getting to know and understand her clients and their businesses. She has a reputation for being able to advise strategically on how the competition piece fits into the wider picture of a client's business, rather than looking at competition law issues in isolation." Chambers Europe, 2018
