Announcements Maples Group Luxembourg Expands to New Location
12 Mar 2020
The Group has been firmly established and prominent in Luxembourg since 2007, offering fund and fiduciary services initially and later adding legal services to its offering. Today, it has become widely regarded as an organisation of choice with an experienced and highly capable team.
The beautifully refurbished offices will combine all of the Group's Luxembourg services under one roof. Conveniently located less than five minutes from the main motorways leading to bordering countries, France, Germany and Belgium, the new location will greatly enhance cross-border commuting for employees, as well as allowing easier access for clients. A dedicated Client Business Centre will also be available to the Group's fiduciary clients, with 23 individual offices available to lease from June 2020.
With a global footprint of 18 locations worldwide, cross-jurisdictional referrals are inevitably driving business growth for the Group in Luxembourg however its team has also taken on a number of new clients, which is a testament to the calibre of lawyers and professionals focused on providing exceptional service in the region.
Commenting on the new offices, Johan Terblanche, Managing Partner of Maples and Calder (Luxembourg) Sarl, the Maples Group's law firm said, "We are delighted to have found a new office location in the Cloche d'Or business district. As clients examine how best to maintain and enhance their European operations, we continue to experience an increasing demand for our local and global services here in Luxembourg, driving the need for additional space to grow our teams to continue to service those clients efficiently. The Maples Group is proud to employ over 100 lawyers and professionals in Luxembourg and we are committed to growing our business here."
Speaking to the Maples Group's offering in Luxembourg, Tom Davies, Regional Head of Maples Group's Fiduciary Services in Europe added, "Luxembourg and our European offices which include Dublin, Jersey, London and The Netherlands, continue to be a strategic priority for the Maples Group and enable us to provide seamless, time sensitive services to our global client base. Having all of our offerings based in the same location in Luxembourg will foster even better collaboration and enable us to continue to provide innovative solutions to our clients."
