Fragomen today announced the opening of its new office in Ireland, based in Dublin's city centre in order to service its portfolio of multinational clients in market.
The firm invested significant resources into the launch of the Dublin office, taking city centre office space and recruiting a specialist team of immigration professionals at all levels.The team will expand to include 20 specialists within the next six months.
Welcoming the announcement by the IDA Ireland client company, An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald TD said “I'm delighted to welcome a company of Fragomen's calibre to Ireland. Known globally for its expertise in providing immigration services to companies, Fragomen's establishment here will assist FDI companies who are either relocating existing staff from abroad or sourcing new staff, in circumstances where immigration requirements apply. Just recently Ireland was named as the best country in the world for attracting high-value FDI for the sixth year in a row. These high tech companies sometimes need to bring in specialist expertise from abroad for their Irish operations and the services to be provided by Fragomen will make that process easier and more streamlined for their clients.”
The Dublin office is led by Bill Foster, a Fragomen partner previously based in London who has relocated to Dublin. He will be joined by a team of Irish immigration specialists and supported by Pauline Mathewson, Fragomen's EMEA managing partner.
The Dublin office will manage immigration queries, applications and compliance from an Irish perspective, for the company’s global client base located outside Ireland.
Bill Foster, commented, “The new office opening is driven by the need to service our clients' rapid growth in Ireland. We can best serve their needs from an office on the ground in Dublin. We have seen a significant increase in client confidence across Ireland and anticipate this will continue as the deadline for Britain leaving the EU draws closer.”
Pauline Mathewson, commented, “We are delighted to now have an office in Dublin, a thriving market of diverse companies. From Dublin, we can meet the growing demands of our Ireland based clients and leading international businesses that are increasingly deciding to make Ireland their European home.”
