Announcements Maples Group Appoints Stephen McLoughlin as Head of Finance Practice in Ireland

03 Sep 2020

Maples and Calder LLP, the Maples Group's law firm in Ireland, is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen McLoughlin to head of its Finance practice in Ireland, effective 1 July 2020.  Stephen succeeds Nicholas Butcher, Managing Partner of the law firm in Ireland who has been acting as head of the practice for the last 18 months. Nicholas continues in his role as Managing Partner

The Dublin Finance practice is currently comprised of seven Partners and 13 Associates who specialise in structured finance, asset finance and banking transactions.

Stephen has been with the firm for nearly nine years, initially joining as an Associate before being promoted to Partner in 2015. A highly regarded finance lawyer, Stephen is consistently recommended by leading industry directories including Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500 and IFLR1000.  He works primarily with international clients and advises on a wide range of capital markets and structured finance products, including CLOs, RMBS and other securitisation structures, fund-linked structured products, ETC platforms, repackagings and debt issuance programmes.  He also advises regulatory issues impacting on structured finance vehicles including those in relation to the Prospectus Regulation, Market Abuse Regulation, AIFMD, EMIR as well as risk retention, disclosure and transparency requirements arising under the Securitisation Regulation. 

Commenting on his appointment, Stephen said: "I am delighted to take up the role and I look forward to continuing to work with our team of exceptionally talented finance Partners and lawyers.  We have been busy supporting clients as they navigate the current uncertain market conditions and the wider challenges posed by the current international pandemic and I, along with my team, will ensure our clients continue to receive the best quality legal advice."

"I congratulate Stephen on his appointment to head of the Finance practice in Ireland which is a reflection of his dedication, talent and commitment and a further example of our ability to provide exciting opportunities for our people at all levels of our business," commented Nicholas Butcher, Managing Partner of the Group’s law firm in Ireland. He added:  "I have no doubt that the Finance practice will continue to thrive under Stephen’s leadership, providing our global client base with the highest levels of service expected from an international law firm."

This appointment follows a number of internal promotions at the Irish office earlier this year and further demonstrates the number of career-progressing opportunities available at the growing firm.  In January, Niamh O'Shea and Ronan Cremin were both promoted to Partner in the Funds & Investment Management practice while Aisling Burke was promoted to Of Counsel in the Commercial Property team.
