International corporate and finance law firm Maples and Calder has announced the creation of 75 jobs in Dublin over the next three years.
The company already employs 175 people in the city. It says the expansion is due to growing demand for both its international legal services and its fund administration services.
The move is being supported by IDA Ireland. The company's clients include many of the world's leading companies, banks and financial institutions as well as private equity funds and growth companies.
''Today's announcement that this world-leading financial and legal services provider, which only came to Ireland in 2006, is expanding its workforce with the creation of 75 jobs, is great news,' 'commented the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton.
''International financial services is a key target sector of Government as part of our plan for jobs and growth, and the Taoiseach has set the target of creating an additional 10,000 jobs in the sector by 2016,'' he added.
"Our growth has been driven by the calibre of the people who have joined Maples in Dublin over the course of the last five years,'' commented managing partner of Maples and Calder in Dublin, Andrew Doyle.
