Maples Advises Brigade-M3 European Acquisition Corp. on $250 Million SPAC IPO

10 Feb 2022

Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, was pleased to advise Brigade-M3 European Acquisition Corp. ("Brigade-M3") on its successful US$250 million listing on Euronext Amsterdam as a Special Purpose Acquisition Company ("SPAC"). The company was incorporated for purpose of effecting a business combination with an operating company with significant operations in Europe, which has positively benefited from a structural shift caused by the COVID-19 pandemic or has been negatively impacted by a temporary dislocation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team led by Jack Marriott, Partner and head of the London Corporate practice, along with Of Counsel Christopher Oliver, acted as Cayman Islands counsel for Brigade-M3 and continue to be selected to act as counsel on SPAC IPOs as a result of the firm's market-leading experience and comprehensive capabilities in this area.  

For over a decade, the law firm has led on the majority of all Cayman Islands SPAC IPOs, having acted on the first-ever Cayman Islands SPAC listing on Euronext in 2008.  

The Group's unique ability to provide British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Jersey, Irish and Luxembourg legal advice in addition to its capacity to provide accountancy services, independent director services as well as ancillary governance and administrative services to SPAC-related entities, makes the Group the perfect choice for international businesses considering SPAC IPOs and business combinations in Asia, the US and Europe.
