The Maples Group has announced new leadership appointments to its Irish management team.
Colm Rafferty has been named co-head of the Dublin corporate team, while Karen Killalea is head of the Dublin employment team.
Nicholas Butcher, meanwhile, has been appointed to a second term as local office managing partner in Dublin.
In the past year, the Maples Group has exceeded a total headcount of 2,000, and also rebranded Maples and Calder and Maples FS under a single brand, now called the Maples Group.
The opening of several new offices brings the group's global presence to 18.
Jonathan Green has also been appointed global managing partner, taking effect this month.
