We are pleased to announce that Maitland has acquired Gowling WLG (Monaco) S.A.R.L., a successful Monaco-based legal advisory firm, which will be rebranded to Maitland Advisory (Monaco).
In purchasing this entity, we have reinforced our existing legal advisory expertise in Monaco under the Maitland banner. We will now formally be licenced to provide international legal advice from our Monaco office.
Our legal services offering in Monaco will be headed by Peter Walford, who brings to Maitland a large network of high net worth clients and intermediaries based in Monaco and elsewhere. Peter is a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales, and has been established in Monaco for many years. He will work with Cécile Schlub and other members of the Maitland team in Monaco.
Herman Troskie, MD of Private Clients at Maitland, commented as follows: “The wealthy are rapidly becoming “global citizens” and require a truly international service, delivered seamlessly across borders. Maitland is one of the few that can offer a seamless multi-disciplinary service through a worldwide network. We are delighted to strengthen our network with this acquisition, which is an ideal bolt-on to our multi-family office offering. We look forward to continuing to bolster and enlarge our private client platform, while retaining our focus on client service excellence.”
Peter Walford said: “I am truly excited about Maitland’s multi-family office offering, and look forward to building out our legal services offering in Monaco. Our existing clients will benefit from Maitland’s experience of more than 40 years in looking after ultra-high net worth individuals, families and entrepreneurs.
