A lawyer from Clyde & Co’s Dublin office will be taking advantage of a pioneering global exchange initiative, after successfully applying to go on a placement with the firm’s New York-based litigation team.

Clyde & Co’s Global Associate Programme provides an opportunity for the firm’s lawyers to spend time in another office, to foster lasting relationships with international colleagues and solidify connections with contacts and clients outside of their usual jurisdiction.

Bernadette Raleigh, a Dublin-based senior associate, successfully applied for a place on this year’s programme, and will be travelling to New York in mid-June.

Situated in the iconic Chrysler Building, Clyde & Co's New York team is one of the largest insurance focused litigation groups in the US and one of 15 US offices.

By spending time working in New York, Ms Raleigh will be given an unrivalled opportunity to immerse herself in a legal and cultural exchange.

On hearing the news, Ms Raleigh said: “The Global Associate Programme offers a unique opportunity to share knowledge, experience and strategies with colleagues in a different jurisdiction. The New York office is home to some of the most experienced litigators in the US and I am delighted to have the opportunity to build immediate and lasting relationships with them. I am looking forward to exploring business development opportunities between our respective offices and experiencing work life in NYC.”

Sinead Connolly, Partner at Clyde & Co in Dublin, said: “The Global Associate Programme is a great platform for our lawyers to form long-term international relationships within the business and strengthen US/Irish relations.”

Sinead wished Bernadette the very best saying, “It’s an invaluable experience for Bernadette in joining the team in New York and one which I am sure will help nurture her progression as a legal professional. With more than 60 offices across five continents, Clyde & Co is a truly global firm where the tremendous strength of our worldwide network is a key driver of our success.”

Bernadette is one of fifty lawyers to secure a place on this year’s exchange programme, with 18 Clyde & Co offices including Calgary, Dubai, Dusseldorf, Hong Kong, London, Miami, Shanghai and Singapore hosting associates.
