They are probably still trying to sell MaplesFS but are finding very few buyers around. It’s hypocrisy for them now to talk about the benefits of a ‘one-stop-shop’. Clearly these hires are an attempt to gain an advantage before Walkers and Intertrust come after their clients. Reply Link Anonymous 19 April 2012 at 00:02 Walkers selling the registered offices of their clients is unprecedented. There are no reports of any other offshore firm even considering a sale of registered offices. As the above writer points out, MaplesFS is a fund services business. I am not sure how an offshore law firm can survive without the annuity income from its registered offices. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
