Senior appointments at Maples and Calder
Maples and Calder (Ireland) LLP, the Maples Group’s law firm, has announced the promotion of six of its lawyers bringing the total number of senior appointments in the last six months to eight.
Two new partners and four new of counsel were appointed in Q1 2021 further strengthening the depth of expertise in the firm’s Irish banking, corporate, dispute resolution & insolvency and funds & investment management practice areas.
In addition to these promotions, Claire Morrissey recently joined the firm as partner and head of the data, commercial and technology practice and earlier this year, Lorna Smith joined the firm as a partner in its financial services regulatory team.
Ireland managing partner, Nicholas Butcher said: “We are very pleased to announce these senior promotions and appointments that reflect both the growth and development opportunities within the firm as well as the strong levels of activity that we anticipate in these sectors in the market, and across our domestic and international client base.”
He added: “These appointments bring the percentage of Partners who are women in our Irish practice to 36 per cent and although we are acutely aware that more needs to be done to achieve a balanced representation of women in our Partnership, we are proud that we continue to make progress in this crucial area. I want to congratulate all of our new Partners and Of Counsel and welcome back Caitriona Carty who will return from maternity leave in April.”
