Griffiths joined Powerscourt from Citigate Dewe Rogerson in 2012 and has overseen a period of substantial growth for the financial services and real estate team.

The team has recently won key clients including Bank of Cyprus, Cairn Homes, McCarthy & Stone, Piraeus Bank and Towergate. It also advised on transactions including the Nets IPO and Tatton Asset Management’s AIM admission.

Ogden joined the agency from Maitland in 2015, taking over its industrials and energy team, which manages clients including Airbus, BP, Capita, CRH, DCC, Nordgold and Volvo.

The team advised DONG Energy on its £11 bn IPO, Europe’s largest IPO in 2016, as well as Amec Foster Wheeler during its acquisition by Wood Group.

Rory Godson, Powerscourt’s CEO and founder, said: “Justin and Peter have played a key part in strengthening our specialist sectoral knowledge and providing a relentless focus on first class service.

“Their expertise will be crucial in continuing to protect the reputation of clients in an ever more complex economic and political environment.”
