Welcome from our Managing Partner and Senior Partner.

Our people make a difference. We have over 180 people working in our Belfast and Dublin offices advising some of the largest, most commercially sophisticated clients as well as “blue-chip” industrial, service and financial companies, emerging enterprises, public bodies and international clients doing business in Northern Ireland. We are a creative law firm that prides itself on finding the best bespoke solutions for our client's transactions. If the obvious doesn’t work, we always look for other ways of getting a result; it’s a natural aspect of how our people work.

Welcome from Roger McMillan, Managing Partner and Neasa Quigley, Senior Partner

We are recognised as market leaders and receive major recommendations across many practice areas. We have a huge amount of heritage yet we’re passionate about building a modern law firm with leading edge technology and stellar client service at the forefront of our offering. Chambers and Partners UK have named us Northern Ireland's top ranked law firm in their 2021 guide.

We are currently ranked number one across more areas of expertise than any other law firm locally. Our “preferred partnering” approach means we are able to work with the best global law firms on behalf of our clients as well as deliver local advice to international law firms looking for a “best friend” relationship on behalf of their clients requiring local advice.

With many of Northern Ireland’s Top 100 companies choosing Carson McDowell as their legal advisors, our solicitors are proud to serve the needs of some of Northern Ireland’s largest companies whilst also advising many SMEs and local start-ups particularly across the technology, food and drink, energy and renewables, retail, construction, healthcare and transport sectors.

Simply put we believe we do more. Better.
