Cork-based law firm Ronan Daly Jermyn will look to add 25 new staff by the end of next year.

Managing partner Richard Martin said the company - which currently employs more than 230 - wants to position itself as a specialist in areas including tech and commercial property.

"There's a serious tech cluster in Cork, there's a cyber-security cluster of companies, we are physically right in the middle of them and we are gaining quite a lot of traction with those companies," managing partner Richard Martin told the Sunday Independent.

"I want to see the firm continuing to develop greater sectoral specialities... in some of the sectors in which we are particularly strong we will become the go-to firm. That's where we want to end up," he added.

Martin said his firm is considering trialling artificial intelligence (AI) technology to help process data more quickly. McCann FitzGerald has recently invested in AI.

"The success of any law firm over the next five years and their ability to develop and grow their business is going to be absolutely contingent on their ability and preparedness to embrace technology," Martin said.
