The Maples Group, a leading service provider offering clients a comprehensive range of legal, fiduciary, fund, regulatory and compliance, and entity formation and management services, has announced the appointment of Olena Mykhailenko as a Vice President in Dubai.

Ms. Mykhailenko brings more than a decade of experience working in the legal and corporate services industry and has vast experience in offshore and onshore company formation, domiciliation, tax residency, corporate secretarial and fiduciary services across DIFC and ADGM regulated financial entities, as well as Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Singapore fund structures.

She was most recently working for a global trust, fund administration and corporate services provider and, prior to that, held various roles with local Middle Eastern and international law firms. She received a Masters of Laws from East Ukrainian Volodymyr Dahl National University.

The Maples Group offers a comprehensive suite of legal, fiduciary and fund services to clients based in or doing business in the Middle East. Since 2005, the Dubai office has prided itself on having a finger on the pulse of the region and has realised significant growth by catering to the needs of the local market. Furthermore, the Maples Group leverages its collective expertise and extensive global network to provide a high-quality service that can be customised to address clients’ specific needs. As a result of this approach, the Maples Group’s business in the Middle East continues to thrive and now counts more than 50 on-the-ground staff members and is the market leader in terms of DIFC entities under administration. Ms. Mykhailenko will be based in Dubai and will work closely with Norbert Neijzen, Regional Head of Fiduciary – Middle East to support existing clients and facilitate opportunities for future growth.

"An ever evolving regulatory landscape is putting more pressure than ever before on our clients who are demanding on the ground support of the highest standards," said Neijzen. "We continue to see significant demand for our fiduciary and corporate services offering in the Middle East and are confident that our broad capabilities, coupled with Olena’s experience and expertise will be highly advantageous to our ongoing efforts."
