Tara will continue the long tradition of Matheson partners contributing to the work of the Law Society of Ireland. I am confident that the Council and our profession will benefit from Tara’s commitment to the issues on which she campaigned - including diversity and inclusion, wellbeing and the international competitiveness of the Irish legal profession.”
