Antony Douglas Vice President EMEA Unity Technologies
After coming highly recommended to Unity Technologies as an experienced tech lawyer with a keen commercial eye, Aoife has not disappointed. Quickly grasping the technical, geographic and operating nuances of our business (video game development software and services) Aoife was quick to solve issues, push through stagnating agreements and keep the commercial team on track for their 2014 revenue targets. Keenly aware of global tech developments and legislation, Aoife has made a huge difference to our financial and operating goals in 2014 and I would recommend her to any prospective client requiring tech legal services.

Guy Waugh, COO at Altobridge
I have had the pleasure of working with Aoife, both as a colleague and as external counsel, for 4 years now. Aoife has proved invaluable to Altobridge in all aspects of our IPR portfolio and its protection. Aoife has been instrumental in multiple software licensing deals both inwards to Altobridge and outwards towards Altobridge's customers. Aoife, because of her deep understanding of the telecommunications business, has also been intrinsic in all of our commercial dealings towards our customers be they direct customers, value added resellers of our software and hardware, consultants, contractors or OEM partners. Dealing with Aoife on a daily basis is always rewarding, valuable and cerebrally stimulating. I hope the pleasure and reward of working with Aoife continues for many years to come.

Brendan Dowling, CEO at Digital Trading
I have worked with Aoife for a number of years, her in-depth knowledge of Telecommunications, IP and Data Protection, combined with great legal and commercial skills makes her a very effective adviser when closing deals with major international Communications Service Providers. I have signed many deals with Mobile Operators, but the fastest and most cost effective contract was negotiated and closed by Aoife single handed. She is an excellent commercial and legal adviser and I continue to rely on her as key adviser in all our commercials dealings. She is great to work with, very efficient and cost effective, I would strongly recommend her work to anyone in the technology industry who needs to get the job done quickly and effectively.

I can't recommend Aoife highly enough, especially for assistance with detailed technical contracts. She is an expert in this field, she has seen it all before and knows the technical terminology - and all the pitfalls. She is efficient and reliable, and does not charge the typical high street rates. We look forward to working with Aoife for many years to come.

Desmond Keary, Director at Nasc Technologies
Aoife is the ideal legal partner for our young company - her knowledge, thoroughness, and judgement has ensured that our we are covered legally in the contracts we have entered into, while at the same time ensuring that the associated contract negotiations were pragmatic, efficient, and centered on the commercials as opposed to the legals.
Aoife brings commercial and financial abilities and experience to the table along with her legal expertise, making her a very valuable partner, one I highly recommend.

John Gilmartin, CEO at Barrcloud
We engaged Aoife to advise on numerous contractual matters for Barrcloud. Aoife's approach to advising tech companies is refreshing in an environment where it can be difficult to find a real expert. Her advice was pragmatic and backed up with years of experience. Aoife has always gone the extra mile for our company and has become a trusted advisor. I am happy to recommend Aoife to both early stage and established technology companies seeking legal advice on all technology law issues.
