Maples Group now has 2,000 staff

The Maples Group recently surpassed 2,000 employees in its offshore law firm and fiduciary and fund services.

Alasdair Robertson, global managing partner of Maples and Calder, the group’s law firm, said in a press release: “2019 has certainly been a memorable year for us. In addition to reaching this milestone, opening our Shanghai and Jersey offices following the successful launch of our Luxembourg legal practice, we also rolled out a complex rebrand.”

In January 2019, Maples and Calder and MaplesFS consolidated under a single brand, called the Maples Group.

“Our journey has taken considerable time, dedication and hard work by all of our colleagues and I am very proud to be a part of this remarkable evolution,” Robertson said.

“This rebrand reflects our clients’ desire to use us across multiple business lines and time zones with the assurance of a seamless service. Otherwise, there has been no change in the management or ownership structure and we continue to be one of the largest independently owned organisations of our kind.”

Over the last 12 months, the Maples Group has opened new offices in Abu Dhabi, Bermuda, China, Jersey and Luxembourg. The group currently employs 76 nationalities globally.

“We thank all of our clients and colleagues around the globe for helping us to achieve this momentous occasion. As the group continues to expand, we are always looking for new talent to join our global teams,” said Scott Somerville, CEO of MaplesFS, the fiduciary, fund, entity formation and management, and regulatory services business of the Maples Group.
