Maples dominates global filings

Maples and Calder provided legal services to the largest number of offshore issuers in the Bonds, ABS and Collateralized categories according to the 2006 Global Filings league tables compiled by US based Factset Research Systems published today.

‘Our position in the global rankings in part reflects the success of our integrated approach to the provision of legal advice by Maples and Calder and administration and listing services by Maples Finance,’ said Maples and Calder Partner, Graham Lockington.

‘Our goal is to offer exceptional client service in a sector which often provides a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We take a much more tailored approach and our specialist directors and staff have dedicated client relationships, which helps us to understand and anticipate our clients’ needs. In addition, our size, experience and ability to offer a multi-jurisdictional capability to our clients allows us to provide a high level integrated service whether for more standardized products or bespoke deals, including providing traditional fund type services for hybrid structured finance transactions,’ said Maples Finance Head of Structured Finance, Phillipa White.
