'Enormously co-operative and highly experienced in Cayman law', Maples Group's 'outstanding team provides typically excellent response times and presents the best combination between professionalism, service, reputation and cost'. In the hedge funds space, the practice reportedly recently advised seven of the world’s top ten largest single-manager hedge fund firms that use the Cayman Islands (Cayman) as a jurisdiction. In private equity matters, it represents a wide range of managers and institutional investors across North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Australia.

Andrew Keast is appreciated by clients for his focus on and experience in the Israeli market.
