Announcements Maples Group Announces Strategic Appointments at Six Offices
05 Mar 2020
The newly elected Partners, Niamh O'Shea and Ronan Cremin are members of the Group's Dublin Fund & Investment Management team that were recently recognised as the leading Irish legal advisers to Irish-serviced funds.
The Group's new Of Counsel include Aisling Burke in Dublin, Maxine Bodden and Stephen Watler in the Cayman Islands, Gurminder Sanghera in Dubai, Karen Zhang Pallaras in Hong Kong and Christian La-Roda Thomas in London. These appointments further strengthen a number of the firm's global core practice areas including Corporate, Dispute Resolution & Insolvency, Finance, Funds & Investment Management and Trusts & Private Clients.
Over the last twelve months, the Group has made a number of strategic internal appointments and tactical secondments demonstrating the range of career-progressing opportunities available within its global network. Among the recent secondments is James Kinsley, a Partner in the Group's Singapore office, who has been seconded to its Dublin office to work as part of the Irish Aviation team over the next six months. James’ secondment is part of the continued global expansion of the Group's Irish law aviation practice, which will enable its Singapore office to offer Irish legal aviation capabilities to clients in Asia, together with its existing Cayman Islands and BVI law offering. Other notable moves include Anna Whaley, an Associate previously based in London who has now relocated to its Cayman office to join the Group’s expanding Regulatory team.
"I would like to congratulate our new Partners and Of Counsel on their appointments which is a reflection of their dedication to provide exceptional client service and exemplary expertise within their specialist practice areas," commented Jonathan Green, Global Managing Partner. He added, "These recent promotions along with other strategic appointments enhance the Group's mandate to deliver the highest level of service that our clients can continue to expect and trust from an international group of our calibre."
