About Shayne


Shayne is a consultant in the Commercial Property Department. Having graduated in Law and French from the University of Limerick, he trained and qualified in London, spending 8 hectic years with Pinsent Masons specialising in brownfield urban regeneration projects such as the 2,000 unit redevelopment of the historic Royal Arsenal Woolwich site for a listed house-builder.

Shayne transported that experience to Keystone Law, an innovative technology platform-based law firm, which has grown from 25 to 300+ lawyers in the space of a transformative decade for the legal and business industries.

Whilst retaining a wide-ranging practice in the UK, advising clients from SMEs to well-known sports, entertainment, financial and retail operators, Shayne is busy bringing his commercial and agile-working skills to the Irish legal market, offering an experienced hand to clients from both sides of the Irish Sea seeking calm, clear and decisive advice.

About Shayne Foley

Shayne has recently joined Leman Solicitors. He advises on all aspects of commercial property with a focus on investment, development, disposals, acquisitions and foreign direct investment and setting up in Ireland. He recently advised an offshore entity on relocating its entire operation to Ireland. He is dual qualified and actively advises in both jurisdictions.

Having trained and qualified in London, Shayne spent 8 years with the City firm, Pinsent Masons, he then left to join Keystone Law.

Although he has been practising since before the Dotcom boom, and has survived the banking crash and is now marvelling at Ireland’s economic renaissance, Shayne is a thoroughly modern lawyer, embracing technology and agile working to enable him to consistently deliver quality advice efficiently and with humour.  He enjoys the journey with clients, growing with them, getting to know them and their businesses.

Shayne can be frequently (well maybe once a week) spotted in a semi-exhausted state jogging towards Poolbeg Lighthouse, dapping a fly on the Corrib or travelling to support the Ireland rugby team well before the days of shiny jerseys. When not engaged in sporting endeavours, he is partial to Dublin’s many social and cultural delights. He’s still searching for a decent farmer’s market in Dublin for those all-important native ingredients.
