Hugo was called to the Bar in England and Wales in 1998 and practised as a barrister at 7BR in London where he specialised in financial crime and regulation.
Global Managing Partner, Alasdair Robertson said: "We are delighted to welcome Hugo to the firm and to our growing regulatory practice. Hugo is a first class, senior lawyer and advocate with experience that will enable our Cayman Islands practice to go from strength to strength. Hugo's recruitment is another step in demonstrating the Maples Group's commitment to helping clients understand and comply with the regulatory initiatives being introduced, which ensures that, as a financial centre, the Cayman Islands remain in step with global standards."
