Maples and Calder Announces Partner Relocations
International law firm, Maples and Calder continues to strengthen its global presence and capabilities with a number of recent internal transfers.
Shaun Denton, previously the Managing Partner of the firm's London office, has relocated to Asia to head up the Hong Kong office. He joined Maples and Calder in 1995 and has extensive experience in all types of capital markets and structured finance transactions, including securitisations, repackagings and derivatives.
Maples and Calder's Hong Kong office has experienced substantial growth and success since opening in 1995. The office principally practises the laws of the Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands and focuses on corporate and financial legal services.
In addition, the firm's London office will benefit from the collective expertise of partners, Nick Evans and Heidi de Vries, who recently relocated from its Cayman Islands office. Heidi specialises in the structuring, formation and ongoing maintenance of investment funds, including hedge funds and private equity funds. Her experience includes the establishment of Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands companies and partnerships and advising on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters.
Nick advises on the formation and maintenance of all types of investment funds, including hedge funds and private equity funds. Nick also has experience of a very wide range of corporate transactions, with particular expertise in M&A transactions, together with restructurings, joint venture arrangements, financing transactions and structured finance deals.
London office Managing Partner, Paul Govier, commented, "Nick and Heidi's knowledge and expertise will serve to strengthen our presence in London, furthering our commitment to delivering the high levels of service expected by our clients."
Maples and Calder's London office provides Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands legal advice, specialising in the investment funds, finance, company commercial and trusts practice areas. London serves as a key base for the firm, enabling clients to seamlessly access the Maples group's global network from a European time zone.
"These strategic transfers align with Maples and Calder's commitment to these regions, enabling us to continue to meet our clients' needs on a global level," said Global Managing Partner, Henry Smith.
