Maples and Calder strengthens Singapore presence

International law firm Maples and Calder has appointed Michael Gagie to the role of managing partner of the firm's Singapore office and has promoted associate Jess Stock to of counsel.

Gagie will relocate to Singapore when all necessary regulatory approvals are obtained.
Gagie joined Maples and Calder in 2010. He has developed an in-depth understanding of the Asian market and business culture during the eight years in which he has worked in Hong Kong, which included a period as managing partner of the Hong Kong office of another international law firm.
Gagie practises both BVI and Cayman Islands law and is ranked by Chambers Global and IFLR1000 as a leader in his field. He has extensive experience in corporate, private equity and finance work. He is also global head of the BVI law practice of Maples and Calder.
Stock has been an associate in the Singapore office for almost two years, previously working in the firm's London office for eight years. Her areas of expertise include corporate, finance and investment funds.
Established in 2012, Maples and Calder's Singapore office was the firm's second Asia-focused offering, following the 1995 opening of its office in Hong Kong, and, along with the establishment of the Singapore office of MaplesFS in 2013, which provides fiduciary and fund administration services to Cayman, BVI and Singapore entities.
"We are very pleased to make this announcement and look forward to Michael taking up the position in due course," says Shaun Denton, managing partner of Maples and Calder in Hong Kong. "Michael's contributions to the Hong Kong office have been outstanding and, in line with our long-term commitment to the region, we anticipate continued success in the Singapore office. Michael will be ably supported by Jess, partner Tom Katsaros and associate Grace Teo."
