Maples and Calder opens Jersey office

RELATED TOPICS​

Maples and Calder has opened a new office in Jersey, providing legal services in the corporate, finance and investment funds areas as well as listing agent services for the listing of securities on The International Stock Exchange (TISE) in the Channel Islands.

The new offering is a natural evolution for the international firm, and will complement its existing British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Irish legal services.
 
Maples and Calder has made three senior hires to support the expansion. The office is managed by leading Jersey advocate Chris Byrne (pictured), who brings over 20 years’ experience in the Jersey legal market as a senior partner at another international firm in Jersey. Byrne is joined by Simon Hopwood and Paul Burton. Hopwood is an investment funds expert who has almost 20 years’ experience specialising in private equity and real estate funds. Burton is a corporate and finance specialist and Jersey advocate who has extensive experience in public and private M&A, corporate/investment structuring, debt financing and capital markets transactions. These three senior hires will be supported by associates Anna Cochrane and Stephanie Edge and other lawyers who are due to join the Jersey team this autumn.
 
“I am delighted to join Maples and Calder to assist with establishing the firm’s presence in Jersey,” says Byrne. “Maples is a top tier international firm and I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues around the world to provide an integrated service to our clients.”
 
Global Managing Partner, Alasdair Robertson, says: “This office marks another milestone for Maples and Calder. We are excited to announce this addition to our global presence, which affirms our long term commitment to our clients, providing them with greater choice to complement our existing services.”
