Special Areas:

Judith has broad experience in general banking & financial services and has developed particular specialisms in relation to derivatives, structured finance and related collateral arrangements, treasury services and banking and financial regulation. She advises financial institutions and various other market participants (including corporates, investment funds, insurance companies and pension funds), both dealers and end-users. She also advises clearing houses and exchanges on Irish-specific issues relating to their services. Her work as Irish counsel in respect of many industry-standard derivatives, collateral, repo and securities lending transaction documents enhances her position as an adviser in those markets.

Judith is a former President and Secretary of the Irish Association of Corporate Treasurers and was a member of the European Commission's Legal Certainty Group. Judith has written and lectured widely on areas of relevance to her practice.
