History

Eugene F Collins was founded in November 1893 by Eugene F. Collins and has the benefit of being long established with a distinguished heritage and dynamic approach.

Eugene was joined by his son Desmond in 1924 and the Firm became known as Eugene F Collins & Son. Anthony Collins, Desmond’s son joined the Firm in 1964 and was a partner in the Firm for over forty years. In 2003 the firm expanded further by way of merger with G.D. Fotrell, another long established firm.

On 1 March 2022, Eugene F Collins merged with international law firm Addleshaw Goddard. This merger brings benefits of wider legal coverage across the globe, increased practice and sector strength and more flexible resourcing for our clients.

While the firm has once again evolved to now be part of Addleshaw Goddard, we are proud of our heritage and values and continue to uphold the principles which have been part of our success.
