Dominic Carman recently met with Maples’ Jersey Head of Office, Nick Evans, and local partners – Simon Hopwood, Paul Burton, Mark Crichton, Tim Morgan and David Allen – to discuss the current Jersey market and the firm’s plans for future growth.

Since September 2018, the office has (together with the complementary Jersey fiduciary services business) grown from two to a team of 45 lawyers and professionals, who advise on corporate, finance and investment funds work. The team also offers Jersey entity formation and corporate / administration service solutions and provides listing agent services for the listing of securities on The International Stock Exchange (TISE) in the Channel Islands.
Part of Maples’ growth in Jersey includes a newly created Jersey Trainee Solicitor Programme for which the first trainees – Emily Garton and Jacob Shenkin, who are both from Jersey – joined in October 2023.
