London, 25 June 2013 | Maples and Calder once again affirmed its position as the leading offshore law firm, securing the prestigious award, "Offshore Firm of the Year", at The Lawyer Awards held in London on 25 June 2013.

The award, collected by London Managing Partner, Shaun Denton and BVI Managing Partner, Arabella di Iorio, recognised the firm’s achievements over the past 12 months. Maples and Calder faced competition from six other firms to win the award in a year that has seen a number of significant changes within the offshore market.

The Lawyer Awards are very well respected and we were delighted that the achievements of our lawyers and staff over the last year have been recognised in this way."
