Announcements Maples Group Jersey Expands to New Office Location
21 Aug 2019
The Maples Group is pleased to announce that due to the growth of its business in Jersey, it has relocated its law firm, Maples and Calder (Jersey) LLP and its fiduciary and corporate services teams, Maples Fiduciary Services (Jersey) Limited, to a new office location at Sir Walter Raleigh House in St.Helier.
The new five storey offices at Sir Walter Raleigh are bright and modern and occupy a prominent landmark position at the western end of the Esplanade, the prime office address in St.Helier, overlooking the Esplanade and waterfront beyond. Jersey International Finance Centre is located a short walk away and neighbouring offices include a wide range of financial and professional services firms.
The Maples Group, a global service provider offering clients a comprehensive range of legal, fiduciary, fund, regulatory and compliance, and entity formation and management services has 18 offices worldwide and added Jersey to the map in the latter half of 2018.
Having leased its current space a little more than a year ago, the Group's new Jersey base is nearly 5,000 square feet which compared to its current office location is over double the size leaving room for further expansion.
Commenting on the new office, Chris Byrne, Managing Partner of the Maples Group's law firm, Maples and Calder (Jersey) LLP, said: "We are very grateful to our staff and clients who have helped us reach this milestone so quickly. The expansion to a new space will serve to facilitate expected future growth in Jersey."
Senior Vice President, Cleveland Stewart who relocated to Jersey from the Group's Cayman Islands office added, "Our collaborative approach to combined legal and fiduciary services offering continues to enable us to create best-in-class solutions for our clients. The move to our new office location also further demonstrates the Maples Group's ongoing dedication to having a solid and enduring presence in Jersey."
The Maples Group employs over 2000 employees globally and has doubled its resources in Jersey since opening late last year, the Jersey office expects to add further positions to their teams by 2020.
Maples and Calder (Jersey) LLP provides full service Jersey legal advice in the corporate, finance and funds and investment management areas. Regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission, Maples Fiduciary Services (Jersey) Limited provides full fiduciary, entity formation, corporate administration services to corporate investment holding companies, limited partnerships and other types of entities.
The team have been involved in a number of landmark private equity transactions this year for both new and existing sponsor clients of the Group, in addition to financing and asset manager instructions.
In January 2019, Maples and Calder and MaplesFS consolidated their offerings under a single brand, now called the Maples Group, bringing together their internationally recognised offerings to address demand from clients for a complete and seamless service to the industry.
