Maples and Calder grows its asset finance team


Law firm Maples and Calder has appointed Sherice Arman into the firm's finance group as counsel.

Arman, formerly a partner at Appleby, has many years finance related experience, particularly in ship and aircraft financing transactions and registrations. She will continue to focus on those areas as a member of Maples and Calder's asset finance team in the Cayman Islands.

“We are delighted to have Sherice join us," said Mark Western, partner and global head of asset finance who is based in the firm's Hong Kong office. "She is well recognised within the industry as a leading shipping expert. Bringing her on board enables Maples and Calder to further extend our asset finance reach."

Richard Smith, director general of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI), added: "Sherice is an outstanding lawyer. She has worked tirelessly with the CAACI in its efforts to market the jurisdiction and showcase our aviation finance expertise. We are delighted to hear of her return to the market after a brief absence and look forward to working with her again in our business development initiatives."
