John Turley LL. B

John joined the team at Macaulay Wray Solicitors as partner at the beginning of 2017. His specialism is corporate and commercial law and includes all manner of advice in relation to mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments, group reorganisations, hotel sales and purchases and commercial contracts. He is regularly instructed on general corporate/commercial advisory matters, and has particular experience in advising on the legal aspects of the delivery of domestic sporting events. He also advises sports bodies, sports clubs and sports people in an individual capacity.

A finalist at the Insider’s Dealmaker Awards in the category of Young Dealmaker of the Year in 2016, John’s clients have described him as being ‘commercially minded and practical’ (Legal 500) and he has been praised by clients for his ‘timeliness of delivery and attention to detail’ (Chambers & Partners).

Gareth Quinn

Gareth Quinn may be the co-founder of Digital DNA and Kairos – two very successful tech businesses from Northern Ireland – but he claims his road to success was unplanned and somewhat unexpected.

‘Scraping’ his way through school, Gareth grew up working in factories, bars and call centres before eventually landing a job with Belfast City Council.

After quickly rising through the ranks of the Lord Mayor’s Office, Quinn got to know Belfast intimately, resulting in a pride for where he lives and a desire to bring more opportunity into our city.

Eddie Irvine Sports

As the business world looks for new, less conventional ways to network and showcase their business, we are excited to have the team from Eddie Irvine Sports join us with their 6 F1 Curve Simulators.
