Maples and Calder Hong Kong Recruitments Bolster Capabilities
The Hong Kong office of international law firm, Maples and Calder, continues to expand its service offering in Asia with the recent recruitment of six experienced individuals.
The recruitment of Everton Robertson, Stacey Yuan, David Wang, Jaron Jiao and Sarena Gong brings an unrivalled range of expertise and reinforces Maples and Calder's position as a premier service provider in the region.
Everton, who returns to the firm's Hong Kong office, is recognised by his peers and respected industry directories and journals. He has extensive experience and expertise in finance and private equity law, advising major Asian corporations, financial institutions and private equity firms on a wide range of legal matters.
Earlier this year, Maples and Calder also welcomed back Matt Roberts as a partner in the Corporate team. Specialising in corporate and funds matters, Matt has considerable industry experience advising on the life cycle of corporate structures and offshore investment funds.
"These recruitments represent a significant expansion of our Hong Kong office; enhancing our Mandarin speaking capabilities and ability to service clients in the PRC," said Mark Western, Managing Partner of the firm's Hong Kong office. "We are also very pleased to welcome Everton and Matt back to the Maples group, which has experienced substantial growth since they were first with us many years ago. Their return highlights our appeal within the industry as an organisation with a full service offering of legal, fiduciary and fund administration services provided by the collective Maples group, which includes Maples and Calder and MaplesFS."
With over 20 years in the region, the Maples group also expanded into Singapore within the last five years, establishing its law offices in 2012 and a year later, opening the doors of Maples Fiduciary and Maples Fund Services (operating divisions of MaplesFS).
The expansion of office locations and strategic hires within the Asia region reflects the group's ongoing commitment to providing clients with the highest standards of legal advice, company formation and administration services.
