The Maples Group is pleased to announce the recruitment of Hugo Lodge as a partner in its Regulatory & Compliance legal practice. Hugo joins the Group's Cayman Islands office from the UK Financial Conduct Authority, where he led the new team responsible for the oversight of AML supervision in the UK legal sector, prior to which he worked in the Retail Banking, Enforcement and Market Oversight division. 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."
The addition of Hugo to the Regulatory & Compliance group follows the recent hire of Sarah Farquhar, who joined the Cayman Islands office as an associate, and Anna Whaley, who joined the London office as an associate.
