Announcements Maples and Calder Extends Irish Legal Offering to London

06 Dec 2017

Leading international law firm, Maples and Calder has announced that it has extended its Irish network to London, in a move that will see three key partners providing Irish transaction advice to UK-based clients. 

The new offering will continue the law firm's drive to provide a full service solution across all its practice areas with the team being located at the same Aldersgate Street address as its existing London office. With an increased focus on the international requirements of UK based clients in light of recent EU developments, as well as a natural evolution of its intention to deliver legal advice on its clients' doorstep, this is a timely move for Maples and Calder.

Nicholas Butcher, Managing Partner of the Dublin office, said, "This is an exciting development for our Dublin and London practices as well as for the international firm as a whole.  It further extends our global Irish network and complements our existing Irish practices in the Cayman Islands and Hong Kong.  It also demonstrates our commitment to London and UK-based clients and referrers and underscores our collaborative approach to advising clients alongside their existing UK advisers with respect to Brexit and other European advice needs."

Previously based in Dublin, partners Donna Ager, head of the firm's European aviation practice, and Adam Donoghue, investment funds specialist, are now located in London on a permanent basis as part of the new structure.  Ager and Donoghue are recognised as leading authorities in these areas and will greatly enhance Maples and Calder's ability to provide Irish law advice to UK clients as well as global institutions based in London. 

They are joined in London by international corporate lawyer, Nigel Wilson, whom Maples and Calder is pleased to announce has commenced with the firm as a partner.  Formerly a partner with Davis Polk & Wardwell, Nigel brings over 20 years of multi-jurisdictional corporate and securities experience to the team, having represented corporate clients and global financial institutions in a broad range of transactions. 

London office Managing Partner, Paul Govier, said, "I am delighted with this initiative.  It will further enhance the close relationship between our BVI, Cayman Islands and Irish teams as, for the first time, we will have all three jurisdictions represented under one roof in London.  This is consistent with our long-standing approach of providing an integrated service to all clients of the international law firm and our affiliate, MaplesFS, regardless of jurisdiction.  To have three Irish partners of such high calibre join us in London is only the start."

Addressing the hire of Nigel Wilson, Butcher said, "We are thrilled Nigel has joined us.  He brings a wealth of insight and experience to our global client base and his hire evidences not only our serious approach to extending our Irish practice to London but also our commitment to broadening our international presence."

Wilson added, "It is a very exciting opportunity for me to join Maples and Calder.  I look forward to working with all my new partners globally, not only to develop the Irish practice in London, but also to add to the firm's international offering.  Maples and Calder has a tremendous referral network and from London I will be ideally placed to build upon and add to that."

In addition to BVI, Cayman Islands and Irish legal services, the Maples group also provides specialised fiduciary, corporate administration and entity formation and management services through MaplesFS, which has a global presence in 15 locations, including Dublin and London.
