The firm has acted for more than 600 of the world’s leading corporations and advisors interacting with Ireland. This includes investment into and out of Ireland, cross border transactions, and a range of other complex international assignments.

With over 800 people, led by 109 Partners, A&L Goodbody has a long-standing history of working closely with the international legal and business community. This is supported by offices in London, New York, San Francisco and Palo Alto. The lawyers based in these offices provide Irish legal advice to multi-national corporations and the international business community. We also have initiatives in place with China and other international jurisdictions.

At ALG we offer four programmes, all of which give you the opportunity to experience life in a corporate law firm - whether you’re curious to know if a career in corporate law is for you or you’ve made your mind up that it is!

Did you know that you do not need to have studied law to become a lawyer at ALG.  We welcome applications from candidates of all degree disciplines.  We provide all of the training you need through our three year trainee development programme.  If you are interested in becoming a lawyer we would love to hear from you.
