| 16/12/2010

(CNS): The managing partner of local law firm Maples and Calder will be moving to Hong Kong according to reports on the web. Gareth Griffiths will move to the Asian office as joint managing partner with Christine Chang, to develop the firm’s Asia Pacific practice, taking his expertise in investment funds and corporate work, including joint ventures, IPOs and mergers and acquisitions with him. Meanwhile, Paul Lumsden will replace Griffiths as the Cayman Islands new managing partner. Lumsden joined the firm in 1995 from the UK, born in the Caribbean; his areas of expertise include corporate and commercial law, investment funds, banking, project finance, regulation and capital markets. Lumsden was made a partner at the firm in 2000.

The tenants of Ugland House, Maples is one of Cayman’s largest law firms and has often been the controversial target of international critics since the US president commented on the many companies registered there.

Maples describes itself as an international law firm advising on the laws of the Cayman Islands, Ireland and the British Virgin Islands with an unsurpassed reputation for delivering legal advice of the highest possible quality, on time and on budget. “With specialists in every aspect of international and offshore law, we are proud of our reputation and strive hard to maintain it,” the firm states.
