The prestigious directory identifies the premier trusts and private client lawyers around the world and has recognised members of the Maples Group since the directory re-launched in 2017, including partner and head of the law firm's Trusts & Private Client team, Morven McMillan, who was honoured in 2017, 2018 and 2019. This continued inclusion endorses the Group's ability to provide unmatched legal advice within the industry.
"I am delighted to have been included in such an esteemed publication that recognises some of the world's highly regarded trusts and private client professionals," commented Maxine Bodden. "I want to extend congratulations to all nominees on this great achievement."
