An interesting piece in the Guardian yesterday about the increasing numbers of UK solicitors seeking to be admitted in Ireland as an insurance policy against Brexit.  Such a step retains their ability to continue to practice in the European Court.

I was in Dublin a few weeks ago to take part in a workshop on Ireland's Legal Services Regulation Act which is not yet in force.   The Act provides for a limited liberalisation of the Irish legal market.  It allows the introduction of LLPs and MDPs.   It is an interesting thought as to whether a liberalisation of the legal market in Ireland coupled with Brexit might make Ireland a much more attractive place to set up offices in future.
