Corporate and finance firm in Dublin to create 75 jobs over next three years
AN international corporate and finance law firm has announced plans to create 75 jobs over the next three years.
Maples and Calder said there has been growing demand for both its international legal services and the fiduciary and fund administration services provided by its affiliate, MaplesFS.
Managing partner Andrew Doyle said the firm was expanding its business in Dublin to better serve its clients who have business in and through Ireland.
"Our growth has been driven by the calibre of the people who have joined Maples in Dublin over the course of the last five years," he added.
Maples opened in Ireland in 2006 and employs 175 people.
Clients include many of the world's foremost corporates, banks and financial institutions as well as private equity funds and growth companies.
Founded more than 50 years ago, Maples and Calder has grown to become a market-leading international corporate and finance firm.
Its latest expansion was supported by the Irish Government, through IDA Ireland.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said: "International financial services is a key target sector of Government as part of our plan for jobs and growth, and the Taoiseach has set the target of creating an additional 10,000 jobs in the sector by 2016.
"Today's announcement that this world-leading financial and legal services provider, which only came to Ireland in 2006, is expanding its workforce with the creation of 75 jobs, is great news.
"The success of the Maples Group in Ireland demonstrates the potential for future growth in this sector, and through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs we are determined to build on this and create the jobs we need."
