Maples Group Expands Global Dispute Resolution & Insolvency Footprint in Key Markets

25 Apr 2024

Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, is pleased to announce some significant developments in its global Dispute Resolution & Insolvency practice.  Luke Stockdale, a Partner who has been with the firm for 12 years, relocated from the Cayman Islands office to London this month. Additionally, Cherrin Wong, an Of Counsel with the firm for over six years, transitioned from Hong Kong to Singapore, becoming the firm's first Singapore-based litigator.

With these strategic relocations, the global practice now boasts dedicated lawyers in six key locations worldwide (British Virgin Islands ("BVI"), Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, Ireland, London and Singapore), enhancing its ability to provide top-tier restructuring, litigation and insolvency expertise to clients across its international network.

As a senior dispute resolution lawyer with extensive experience in the Cayman Islands and the BVI, Luke will continue to work closely with the firm's global Cayman and BVI practices and will also collaborate with the firm's London and European Corporate, Funds & Investment Management, Finance and Trusts practices. Recommended in Chambers Global and as a 'Leading Individual' by The Legal 500, Luke has experience across a wide range of commercial litigation, arbitration and contentious restructuring and insolvency matters, with a particular emphasis on complex multi-jurisdictional cases.  He also has considerable experience in fraud and asset-tracing, shareholder disputes and investment fund disputes and regularly advises boards, investors, high-net-worth parties and insolvency practitioners on contentious matters and insolvencies. His relocation to London will support with providing time zone sensitive advice to clients and contacts in London, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

Commenting on the developments, James Eldridge and Caroline Moran co-global heads of the practice said, "These moves mark a positive step forward for our practice and demonstrate our commitment to providing dedicated restructuring, litigation and insolvency expertise in multiple key locations across the Maples Group's extensive network.  With dedicated lawyers now based in six strategic locations, we are better equipped than ever to serve our clients with fast, accurate and pragmatic advice on a global scale."

Maples and Calder has a market leading global Dispute Resolution & Insolvency practice and continues to act as counsel on a number of the largest and most complex litigation and global restructuring matters. Recent matters include a complex multi-jurisdiction asset-tracing and recovery matter, the US$30 billion restructuring of China Evergrande and the landmark restructuring of Sunac China Holdings Ltd. Impressively, the practice was the top ranked offshore firm in Global Restructuring Review's top 100 global restructuring and insolvency firms. The latest news follows the addition of Kat Burke to the firm's Dublin Dispute Resolution & Insolvency practice.
