Brexit

Our dedicated microsite can help you keep abreast of the latest legal and regulatory developments.

Maples and Calder and MaplesFS (together the "Maples group") are uniquely placed to provide legal, corporate, specialised fiduciary and fund administration services to clients considering the impact of Brexit on their business and operations. It is widely anticipated that Brexit will have a substantial impact on EU cross-border activity and we have assembled a multi-disciplinary team to work with our clients and their international advisers on key legal, regulatory and tax issues, arising from the recent United Kingdom referendum on EU membership.

How the Maples Group Can Help

The Maples group combines extensive knowledge and experience of EU law and specialist fiduciary and administrative expertise with the in-depth strength of a global team to deliver the highest quality services to our clients.

For EU cross-border advice we have assembled a multi-disciplinary team to work with our clients and their international advisers on EU legal, regulatory and tax issues, including those arising from the recent United Kingdom referendum on EU membership.

Our team has been advising financial, institutional, business and private clients around the world on all aspects of carrying out business in the EU or on accessing key EU markets from third countries. In a post-Brexit environment this experience is now being harnessed for contingency planning or for immediate restructuring.

Key projects have included advising on:

  • fund and management company passporting and distribution options in the areas of AIFMD, UCITS and MiFID
  • dealing with the impact on aviation finance, structured finance and cross-border banking activity
  • advising on Irish and EU company law requirements, relocations, foreign direct investment, FinTech, employment, governing laws and dispute resolution issues
  • advising on property funds and traditional purchase and leasing projects for international clients setting up operations in Ireland
  • advice on optimal tax structuring while ensuring compliance with applicable tax

Additional advice is provided by our regulatory colleagues on key EU requirements including Solvency II, capital adequacy, remuneration rules and the EU Commission's Capital Markets Union initiative.

The experts located in our Dublin office work closely with other Maples European and global offices to ensure that your business and transactions are structured for optimal efficiency, flexibility and performance.
