Dillon Eustace is again recognised as no.1 adviser for Irish domiciled funds in 2018 by Monterey Insights Ireland Fund Report 2018.

Dillon Eustace, one of Ireland’s leading law firms, has been named as the top legal adviser to Irish domiciled funds in 2018, continuing its unbroken record since the Ireland Fund Reports began.
