Barry Walsh, Partner, Employment, Pensions and Incentives
I am Head of Fieldfisher Irelands’ Employment Department. I have considerable employment law experience, having previously served as a partner with a large Dublin law firm for a number of years.
I have advised on a wide range of Irish and multinational corporate, public and institutional clients on all aspects of Irish employment law from recruitment to retirement including contentious, advisory and transactional work. I also advise on industrial relations issues arising from mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing and redundancy situations.
In advising clients, I always seek to communicate the salient issues succinctly and accurately, always offering outcome-focused solutions.
Chambers Europe 2019 - Clients admire his “pragmatism” and “good advice,” adding that “everything was dealt with on a timely basis and he was always available.”
Chambers Europe 2018 - Barry Walsh is described by a client as “a pleasure to deal with,” further explaining: “He is commercially astute and will look to provide solutions.” Another client appreciates his “superb ability to explain and simplify complex issues.”
I advise a wide range of Irish and multinational corporate, public, commercial semi-state and institutional clients, partnerships and senior executives on all aspects of Irish employment law from recruitment to retirement including contentious, advisory and transactional work.
I have lectured and presented widely on employment law issues with bodies such as the Law Society of Ireland, International Bar Association, Employment Law Alliance, Legal Island and CIPD, and have published various articles on HR law issues in mainstream media and specialist publications.
