New Lawyers Join Maples and Calder's Leading Funds Team

09 Aug 2012

Further to our update of 29 March 2012, we are delighted to welcome four new associates to our growing Funds team in our Cayman Islands office and our newest partner to our British Virgin Islands office. Tim Clipstone, Greg Barwick, Philip Dickinson, Patrick Head and Lucy Nicklas are each specialists in their respective fields.

"It is with great pleasure that we add these new lawyers to our firm, as we anticipate that their collective expertise will serve to add more strength in depth to our client offering," our Global Head of the Funds Group, Jon Fowler, announced. "Maples and Calder is renowned for its collegiate approach and reputation as a top tier international law firm. We feel that these hires reinforce that position and are pleased that each of these lawyers made the decision to join us."

That 'collective expertise' covers both start-up and ongoing advice in relation to all aspects of investment funds, including the creation and innovative structuring of private equity funds and provision of bespoke solutions to challenges and opportunities arising within the hedge funds space. 

Tim, Greg, Philip, Patrick and Lucy have each represented large international financial institutions and independent investment managers across the spectrum. Each has significant experience in advising on fund structuring, formation, ongoing compliance, governance, restructuring and winding-up. 

Maples and Calder is recognised for the diverse wealth of experience that each of our lawyers brings to clients, who expect the highest level of service from us. We consistently recruit first class lawyers to meet that demand.

The six remaining lawyers mentioned in our earlier update will join the firm in October, to take up their respective roles within the Funds group.

For further information please contact any of the partners listed above.
