It has been a very busy quarter at Quintas and we have had some very exciting news over the summer including the appointment of Dave O’Brien as Tax Partner.  Another highlight was the safe arrival of baby Caoilian to our colleague Joan Bourke and her husband Kevin in late August.


We welcomed two new staff members Catherine Caplice and Carla Jesus, who have joined our team and we are also due to welcome four new graduates into the firm over the coming weeks.  It gives us great pleasure at Quintas to have new staff members on board and particularly to have the opportunity to encourage and support new graduates to progress their training pathways and careers.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single person on the team at Quintas for their constant commitment to the firm. Covid-19 brings many challenges for everyone and as we continue to live through unprecedented times, our priority at Quintas remains the safety of our staff and the continued high levels of service and supports we provide to our clients.


As always if you have any questions in relation to the articles below or on any matter please contact any member of our team.
