Announcements Maples Group Strengthens its Finance Practice in Asia
27 Feb 2019
James Kinsley, a finance partner in the Maples Group's legal services team, has recently relocated to the Singapore office, further strengthening its service offering in Asia.
Previously based in the Maples Group's Dubai office for the past five years, James has experience in international capital markets and finance transactions across Asia, Europe and the Middle East. In particular he advises on structured finance, aircraft finance, fund finance, Islamic finance, general banking and corporate transactions, including private equity co-investment platforms. James also advises leading financial institutions on complex netting and collateral structures for both conventional and Islamic derivatives. Before joining the legal services team at the Maples Group, James worked at Clifford Chance in London, Allen & Overy in London and Hong Kong and Morgan Stanley in Hong Kong.
Managing Partner of the Singapore office's legal services division, Michael Gagie, said, "We are delighted to welcome James to Singapore as a significant addition to our leading finance practice. Singapore is both a regional and international hub for cross border corporate, M&A, finance and funds activity and expanding our capabilities enables us to further pursue the growing opportunities throughout the Asia Pacific region."
James added, "I am delighted to return to Asia with valuable experience gained in the Middle East. I look forward to working with the rest of the team to provide innovative solutions to our clients in this dynamic market."
James is admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales (not a practising English solicitor) and an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands.
