Helen Dooley, Group General Counsel at AIB, leads one of the largest in-house legal teams in the country with approximately 134 lawyers. AIB is a leading Irish consumer and commercial bank, known as one of Ireland`s top four banks, with a strong presence in Northern Ireland through affiliated partner banks. Dooley held this position during a significant transformation phase in AIB`s history and led the team very well during this time and was a member of the bank`s senior management group for many years. As one proponent put it, „AIB has gone beyond many of the important issues it has addressed during this period. As a result, Dooley has restructured the legal team to focus on the bank`s core business areas and is well positioned to advise the bank on the complex regulatory challenges it faces and to take into account technological developments in the legal profession. The latter have the potential to be of significant value to AIB and Dooley, and their team is at the forefront in this area. 3.

If you already have a mortgage with us and would like to upgrade to a lower LTV band rate, you may need to provide us with an updated full appraisal report and contact an appraiser from our resident mortgage appraiser committee yourself to arrange this appraisal. Please note that while COVID19 restrictions apply and access to properties is not allowed, we accept a „drive-by” assessment from the bank`s rating panel so that we can process your LTV rate requests. „The number of employees in the legal department has declined in recent years as the bank and the Irish economy have improved performance.” The large number of lawyers employed by the bank partly reflects the legal paperwork associated with much of its day-to-day lending and investment activities. 9.
