The Legal 500 EMEA 2020 Recognises Maples Lawyers and Practices

27 Jul 2020

Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, is pleased to share that The Legal 500 EMEA 2020 has recognised its lawyers and practices across its Dublin, Luxembourg and Dubai offices.

The law firm received 20 practice group placements and remarkably, 40 of its lawyers received individual recognition in this year’s edition.  11 partners received the ‘Leading Individual’ distinction within their practice area while six partners were listed as ‘Next Generation Partners’, an accolade which acknowledges newer partners who received exceptional client feedback and who had a prominent role in several significant matters. Three associates were also commended for their outstanding expertise in the fields of litigation, corporate and banking and were listed in the ‘Rising Star’ category.

Throughout this edition, clients endorsed the firm as a "responsive, progressive and commercially minded law firm".   Clients also praised lawyers for their "commercial, superb and top-notch" legal advice. 

Commenting on the rankings, Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Green, said, "This achievement is a testament to the expertise of our lawyers in the EMEA region and to their commitment to delivering excellent client service, no matter the circumstances.  We are particularly pleased to see our Luxembourg colleagues recognised in the rankings this year, reflecting the significant impact that they have made in the marketplace over the last two years.”

For over 30 years, The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world, with a comprehensive research programme revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market.  Their research is based on submissions from law firms, interviews with leading private practice lawyers and feedback from over 300,000 clients worldwide.
