Annoucements Maples Group Celebrates 2000 Employee Milestone
14 Nov 2019
Maples Group, a leading global service provider offering clients a comprehensive range of legal, fiduciary, fund, regulatory and compliance, and entity formation and management services, marked a very important milestone in its more than 50 year history, having recently welcomed its two thousandth member of staff.
Reaching the 2000 employee milestone is a testament to the Group in how it continues to evolve as a leader in the legal and professional services industry, providing top tier expertise and advice with deep sectoral and industry knowledge across its worldwide offices. In addition to comprising the largest law firm among its peers and market-leading fiduciary and fund services, Maples Group is widely recognised for its legacy of excellence and consistently holds leading standings in international directories and leading industry ranking tables.
Alasdair Robertson, Global Managing Partner of Maples and Calder, the Group's law firm, commented: "2019 has certainly been a memorable year for us. In addition to reaching this milestone, opening our Shanghai and Jersey offices following the successful launch of our Luxembourg legal practice, we also rolled out a complex rebrand."
In January 2019, Maples and Calder and MaplesFS consolidated their offerings under a single brand, now called Maples Group, bringing together their internationally recognised services to address demand from clients for a complete and seamless service unique to the industry.
Speaking to the rebrand, he added, "Our journey has taken considerable time, dedication and hard work by all of our colleagues and I am very proud to be a part of this remarkable evolution. This rebrand reflects our clients' desire to use us across multiple business lines and time zones with the assurance of a seamless service. Otherwise, there has been no change in the management or ownership structure and we continue to be one of the largest independently owned organisations of our kind."
Over the last twelve months, Maples Group has opened new offices in Abu Dhabi, Bermuda, China, Jersey and Luxembourg, demonstrating its strong commitment to servicing a multinational client base and choosing locations that facilitate time zone efficiencies and enable a seamless, multilingual service. The Group strives to foster a culture that values diverse perspectives and currently employs 76 nationalities globally, affording clients multilingual and culturally tailored capabilities. Furthermore, the Group demonstrates this commitment by creating inclusive and supporting working environments that foster the conditions necessary for employees to thrive.
"We thank all of our clients and colleagues around the globe for helping us to achieve this momentous occasion. As the Group continues to expand, we are always looking for new talent to join our global teams," said Scott Somerville, CEO of MaplesFS, the fiduciary, fund, entity formation and management, and regulatory services businesses of Maples Group. "We recognise that our people are our greatest assets and we are committed to providing the resources and support necessary to ensure both personal and professional fulfillment. We expect to continue to experience significant growth across many of the markets in which we operate and are excited to see our global offering continue to expand as our clients' needs evolve.”
