CKT announces the appointment of two new partners

We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new Partners to our Corporate and Healthcare practices. Despite the challenging economic climate over the past decade in Ireland, the practice has experienced continuous growth across our Cork and Dublin offices.


The appointment of new partners, Alison Kelleher and Hilda O’Keeffe, comes at a time when our Dublin office relocates to larger offices in the  Ormond Building, Ormond Quay, having opened new offices on George’s Quay, Cork in March 2016.


Alison Kelleher has been promoted to Partner in the Healthcare Department. Having joined CKT in 2015, she previously practiced in Dublin and London with leading firm Weightmans LLP. Alison is a CEDR Accredited Mediator, with extensive experience in resolving complex health and social care disputes on behalf of leading indemnifiers and public bodies.


Hilda O’Keeffe has joined the firm as Partner, having previously held the position of University Solicitor with University College Cork.  Hilda managed the team of legal advisors to the University for eight years. She provided strategic advice and practical legal solutions on commercial, corporate, intellectual property and collaborative projects involving State and multinational partners, in addition to litigation and administrative law matters. Hilda brings a wealth of experience having previously worked in a large commercial practice in Dublin.
