The Maples Group's Asset Finance team is comprised of legal and fiduciary experts across offices in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, London and Singapore.

Global Head of the Asset Finance group, Mark Western commented on the award-wins: "We are extremely proud to be recognised once again for our work on high profile and innovative international transactions such as these. It further demonstrates our ability to provide first class legal advice and fiduciary services in this area, and the successful execution of these deals would not have been possible without the exceptional team of aviation experts at the Group, and of course the support of our loyal and trusted clients."

Other team members involved in the winning deals were: Donna Ager, Sherice Arman, Barnabas Finnigan, Shari McField, Jonathon Meloy, Anthony Philp and Mary O'Neill.
