Announcements New Arrivals at All Levels as Maples Expands BVI Litigation Practice
25 May 2018
Maples and Calder welcomes senior lawyer Alex Hall Taylor to its growing British Virgin Islands office. Formerly a barrister at leading English Chambers 4 New Square, Alex joins as a Partner in Maples and Calder's BVI litigation practice, teaming up with Partner Adrian Francis, who joined the firm from Three Stone Chambers in October 2017.
Richard May, Managing Partner of Maples and Calder's BVI office said: "It is a real testament to the BVI and to our firm, that lawyers of the calibre of Alex and Adrian have joined our BVI litigation practice as the BVI continues its recovery from last year's hurricanes.
Alex and Adrian have the experience and expertise inside and outside the courtroom to take our litigation practice from strength to strength." It is not just at partner level that the firm has been recruiting. Litigation Associate Carl Moran has just completed a permanent transfer to the BVI from Maples and Calder's Dublin-based litigation team after a successful secondment to the BVI in 2017. BVIslanders and law graduates Andrea Walters and Lenore Faulkner have also recently joined the litigation team as Paralegals, with Ms Walters being admitted as a barrister of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (British Virgin Islands) on 3 May 2018.
Adrian Francis added: "The recent hires reflect the increasing volume of disputes work in the BVI. With a nine-strong team of litigation fee earners based in the BVI, we are well positioned to service this work to the highest standard."
