There are many reasons to invest in Northern Ireland, from our highly skilled workforce, our advanced infrastructure, our competitive costs, our access to markets, our business supportive environment and our developed legal system.  Northern Ireland is one of the most cost-efficient business environments in Europe, with our capital city Belfast being named as Europe’s most business-friendly city of its size in 2016.

Our firm has unrivalled knowledge covering all the legal aspects of foreign direct investment into Northern Ireland, having worked alongside international businesses investing in the region for over 30 years. We offer a full service to meet your specific legal requirements including advice on employment law, real estate, commercial agreements, corporate structuring, government funding and corporate finance.

We also work beyond Northern Ireland through strategic alliances with international law firms, carefully managing the process to ensure continuity of client care, as well as delivering local expertise at every stage of the transaction. 

We recognise that most businesses find it helpful to have an overview of the legal landscape before finalising their investment plan.  Many businesses have similar initial queries relating to corporate, real estate and employment law issues.  In response, we have compiled a guide to provide a high-level introduction to some of the key legal topics of interest to companies doing business in Northern Ireland.  If you have any specific queries please get in contact with one of our team.
