Announcements Maples and Calder Recruits Senior BVI Litigation Partner
09 Oct 2017
Maples and Calder is pleased to announce the recruitment of Adrian Francis, formerly a barrister at Three Stone in London. Adrian joins as a partner in the firm's BVI Litigation and Insolvency practice.
Adrian has extensive experience working in large cross border teams on high value, complex international disputes. He was called to the Bar in England and Wales in 1988 and has also been called to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (BVI).
Following the passage of Hurricane Irma in early September, a number of Maples and Calder's BVI team members have temporarily relocated to the firm's Cayman Islands office. Adrian will also be temporarily based in the Cayman Islands pending the approval of his BVI work permit and his permanent move to the BVI.
Aristos Galatopoulos, Maples and Calder's global head of Litigation and Insolvency, said: "We are delighted to welcome Adrian to the firm and to our growing BVI partner base. Adrian is a first class, senior lawyer and advocate with plenty of BVI experience, and who will help our top tier BVI Litigation and Insolvency team go from strength to strength. It should go without saying that Maples and Calder is committed to helping the BVI return to normal after the devastating effects of Irma last month."
