Gavin Smith, Ireland's Head of Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice commented "To be recognised by Who's Who Legal for the 4th consecutive year is a testament to the hard work and quality of our outstanding team", adding "We have invested considerably in our insolvency and dispute resolution teams across our offices by a series of strategic hires and promotions, which enables us to continue to provide top quality legal advice for our clients."

London Insolvency & Dispute Resolution partner John O'Driscoll added: "Walkers' unique global footprint of London, Dublin, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, in addition to our offshore offices, positions us perfectly to advise global clients on contentious and strategic matters which relate to the six laws that we practice. We are delighted that Who's Who Legal continues to recognise this strength."
