Announcements Maples and Calder wins Whos Who Legal Private Funds Award

21 Jun 2013

In its annual awards, Who’s Who Legal has selected Maples and Calder as Firm of the Year for Private Funds. 
 
This is the first time the firm has been selected for this honour. The awards are based on a number of factors, including general feedback received in the research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour.  

Maples and Calder is represented by 15 lawyers from six different jurisdictions, demonstrating the strength of the firm’s practice in this field. Seven practitioners from the firm’s office in the Cayman Islands are included in this chapter, with Iain McMurdo, head of the global private equity group, garnering particular praise for his expertise in private equity fund formation and financing to financial institutions and investment managers. Jon Fowler, the global head of the investment funds group, is also singled out for his skills in this field. At the London office, the “simply brilliant” Paul Govier is considered a fund formation expert and in Ireland, Peter Stapleton and Barry McGrath come highly recommended. Individuals from the British Virgin Islands and Hong Kong are also featured, alongside Tahir Jawed in the United Arab Emirates. A full listing of Maples and Calder's recognised lawyers can be found here.
 
The winners are formally announced in The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers 2013, a compendium edition of all the individual Who’s Who Legal publications, which is released in June and covers 32 practice areas and over 100 countries.

 

Who’s Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients and other experts in the sector. It is impossible to buy entry into this publication; only lawyers who score most highly according to our independent international research criteria are listed.
Who’s Who Legal is official research partner of the International Bar Association and strategic research partner of the ABA Section of International Law. In 2012, Who’s Who Legal’s parent company, Law Business Research, was recognised for the second time by The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the area of international trade. These awards are the most prestigious a British company can receive.
