Announcements Maples Group Maintains Leading Position in 2020 Chambers Asia Pacific
11 Dec 2019
As one of only two law firms ranked in Band 1, the firm was described as the "strong choice for Chinese clients with multiple practitioners proficient in Mandarin" and as "standout experts on Cayman Islands and BVI law with laudable strength in investment funds work."
Remarking on the rankings, Mark Western, Managing Partner of the Group's law firm in Hong Kong said, "2019 has been a tremendous year for the Asia Pacific team and this accolade is well earned recognition on the unmatched legal expertise the teams continue to deliver to our clients across the Asia Pacific."
In addition to the law firm's Band 1 ranking, partners Ann Ng, Anthony Webster, Greg Knowles, Mark Western and Michael Gagie also received individual rankings. In particular, Anthony Webster, who leads the firm's private equity practice in Asia, was one of only two lawyers listed as an Eminent Practitioner, which Chambers notes as highly influential lawyers in their practice area who through their managerial and client relationship commitments are key players in the team.
These rankings follow a particularly successful year for the Group's Asia Pacific team who collected five "Offshore Firm of the Year" awards in addition to several awards for innovative client transactions.
