Marina is one of two new partners joining one of Ireland’s leading law firms alongside Laois native Caroline Meaney who is now based in Newport.
With over twenty years legal experience, Marina is an experienced litigator with extensive knowledge advising clients across a broad spectrum of contentious and non‐contentious matters. Her focus areas include public administrative law, judicial review, and regulatory law.
In 2018, she was appointed associate partner to Michael Houlihan & Partners.

Caroline is a seasoned solicitor with 23 years of experience and now leads the Commercial Department at MHP Sellors. She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in commercial law, commercial property transactions, and banking to clients.
Both appointments come on the back of a successful merger between two of the longest established and award-winning law firms in counties Clare and Limerick, Michael Houlihan & Partners (MHP), Ennis, Co. Clare and Sellors LLP, Limerick, in July 2022. The merger positions MHP Sellors as the largest law firm in Co. Clare and the largest dual-county legal team in the Mid-West region.
In addition to these appointments, MHP Sellors is committed to further expansion as it strengthens its legal service offering in Clare and Limerick. Currently, the firm has open positions for four roles, including a commercial property lawyer. This growth initiative is particularly geared towards enhancing services for local authority clients, lending institutions, insurance companies, privately owned companies, and private clients in the region.
Speaking about the appointments and the firm’s continuous growth, Managing Partner Stephen Keogh said, “MHP Sellors is proud to welcome Caroline Meaney and Marina Keane as partners. Their expertise and experience further strengthen our commitment to providing exceptional legal services in Clare and Limerick. As we continue to grow, we are excited about the opportunities ahead and the value we bring to our clients”.
