Law firm expands by relocating Ireland office

The move is part of a strategic plan, with a focus on patents.

HGF has announced its office relocation in Dublin and the opening of a new office in Belfast.

Both offices opened their doors this month to accommodate new growth within the business.

The move is part of a strategic business plan, as HGF Dublin relocates to Ireland’s largest global entrepreneurial superhub, the Guinness Enterprise Centre (GEC).

This will encourage new business opportunities, while continuing to build a strong sense of community and innovation at HGF, said the firm.

The offices will be led by partner and patent attorney Craig Thomson. In Dublin, Thomson’s leadership of the team will be supported by patent director Marie Walsh.

Thomson said: “We are delighted to move our team in Dublin to work alongside the vibrant Health Cluster, where our values align well with the teamwork and innovation energy of the GEC.

“As always, our aim is to create real impact for our clients through our team’s focus on providing commercially relevant and integrated intellectual property advice.”

The announcement comes as the firm also opened a new office in Belfast. The new hub will be part of the workspace, Catalyst, in the Titanic Quarter on Queens Road.

Thomson said: “We are delighted to be moving our established Belfast-based team into the Catalyst in the Titanic quarter, and creating this as a hub for supporting our clients both in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.”
