Dublin Partner recognised as one of Law.com's Rising Stars



We're proud to announce that Elaine Traynor, Partner in our Corporate and Renewable Energy Team has been recognised in Law.com's Rising Stars: Europe's Best Up-and-Coming Female Lawyers, 2024, standing out for her expertise in Renewable Energy.

Law firms selected their best individuals, who were then compared to determine who should make the final list. After more than 100 submissions from across more than 40 firms and 16 countries were whittled down, Elaine was selected alongside 24 other female lawyers under 40, with the final list representing the best and brightest practicing in Europe, excluding the UK.

All candidates were judged against the following criteria: the quality of their client base; examples of driving forward the size or reputation of their practice area; the scale, significance, and complexity of their cases; their client feedback and general market reputation; the standing of their mentor; and any other examples of career success and innovation.

Elaine has built a focused practice advising clients in new and emerging renewable technologies, such as offshore wind, hydrogen, and wave and is actively involved in advisory groups helping shape Ireland's future energy market.

About her work with Fieldfisher's clients, Elaine said: “Our clients are at the forefront of, and contributing to and influencing, policy development.  Their positivity, passion and perseverance in this constantly evolving industry is really inspiring.”
