History of Noel Smyth & Partners
The firm was established by Noel Smyth in 1978 and has always been based in the centre of Dublin, firstly in Fitzwilliam Street and now in Fitzwilliam Square.
Noel Smyth was educated at University College Dublin and at the Law Society in Dublin and qualified in 1973. Noel became a Consultant to the firm in 1997 when he became full time Executive Chairman of an Irish and UK publicly quoted Company, Dunloe Ewart PLC. Noel has in the past advised on all aspects of commercial law corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions in the United Kingdom and Ireland, both for quoted or private companies and has an exceptionally large amount of legal and commercial experience at the highest levels. Noel sits on the Boards of a large number of companies and institutions as well as a number of registered charities, where he is well known for his charity work.
The firm from the very outset was a business based practice acting in all aspects of commercial law in the heart of Dublin’s business district. As the business community developed, so did the firm and it soon became a leading player in the property and commercial market, advising Banks, financial institutions, property developers, multinational companies and various corporations about all aspects of business and commercial dealings, with particular emphasis on property development, finance, tax and dispute resolution. The firm moved to its current location at 12 Ely Place, Dublin 2 in 1986 where its main office is still based.
The firm has acted in some of the largest developments in the country including many of Ireland’s leading shopping centres, retail parks, office parks and large commercial and residential developments. The firm also established a reputation for dealing with very substantial litigation and disputes and was involved in many of the largest and high profile cases in the 1980’s, 1990’s and has continued to act in very large commercial disputes and has always maintained considerable expertise in litigation and dispute resolution.
