New Partner to Join Maples and Calder in Dublin
Paul Dobbyn will join Maples in Dublin on 1 May 2010. Paul's appointment will bolster the funds group given his recognition as a leader in the Irish financial services and funds industry. He has been heavily involved in shaping the regulation of the industry in Ireland both at policy level and its implementation through legislation and regulation.
Paul will also lead the firm's growing insolvency practice. Since 2006 he has practised as a barrister at the Irish Commercial Bar, prior to which he was a senior partner at one of Ireland's large domestic corporate law firms, where he led both the investment funds and insolvency groups. As the firm continues to work in partnership with many of the world's other leading international law firms, Paul's appointment will be invaluable in furthering the development of Maples' Dublin office and growing its funds market share in Ireland.
