Announcements COVID-19: Working Together to Protect Us All

30 Jul 2020

Further to our earlier update on how the Maples Group is responding to COVID-191, we continue to follow all advice and guidelines issued from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local governments to protect our personnel, our clients and the members of the communities where we operate.

An updated summary of the preventative measures and steps that we are taking to keep our people safe and maintain our usual high standard of client service is detailed below. These measures are being reviewed on a continual basis.

If you have more specific enquiries relating to your business, please speak with your usual Maples Group contact.

Maintaining Client Service


All of our lawyers and professionals continue to have the necessary capabilities to enable them to effectively work remotely, with secure access to relevant internal platforms, as required.

Currently most of our global teams are working remotely however some of our teams have started to return to the office in countries where the government advice and regulations allow them to do so. We anticipate that we will operate a blended working environment across many of our locations for the foreseeable future.

International Business and Personal Travel

Our travel suspension in relation to all global business travel remains in place until further notice.

Furthermore, we have revised our global policy in relation to personal travel for any team members attending the office at this time.

Meetings and Events

We have made the decision to cancel all upcoming in-person meetings and events. Many of our meetings, seminars and events are being run virtually.

Our current guidance also restricts Maples Group personnel attending client or industry meetings, events or gatherings of any size.

Maples Group Offices

While our offices remain open, we are currently requesting that clients and vendors do not attend any of our offices at this time. We are happy to discuss alternative virtual meeting and / or delivery and collection options.
