Maurice has played a major role in the growth of a number of magic circle and major US law firms, most recently having co-founded the London office of Ropes & Gray.


For many years he was a market-leading finance lawyer who in 1995 was one of the pioneering partners to leave the security of a Magic Circle firm to set up the London office of then new entrant to the London market, Weil Gotshal & Manges. Maurice moved to White & Case in 2000 where he played a pivotal role in the major expansion of the firm in London during the noughties.


Throughout his career, Maurice has seen first hand the positive impact that diversity has within law firms. He continues to promote diversity in its broadest possible sense with every client he works with. As a result these firms see wide-ranging benefits, from fresh and innovative thinking through to greater financial success.


He has always enjoyed the challenge of building and developing large teams and in a new phase  of his career has decided to put this vast experience to good use, providing his services and skills to law firms and working with talented partners looking for their next role. 

Maurice is married with 3 daughters and when not working enjoys spending time with his wife's St Kittian family and despite everything, keeping the faith with his beloved Manchester United. Our brand colour may have something to do with this passion...

Lawyer Talent Network is a proud supporter of Dallaglio RugbyWorks.
