Appleby 'one to watch' in the Chambers Global High Net Worth Guide
Appleby has been recognised for the second year running in the Chambers Global 2017 High Net Worth Guide for the work it undertakes in the Private Client & Trusts sector.
Six lawyers from across our global network have been notably recognised, with Partners Carlos de Serpa Pimentel and Keith Robinson both achieving Band 1 status. Also included in the Guide are Partner and Group Head for the Private Client and Trusts practice in Bermuda, Vanessa Schrum, Jersey Partners David Dorgan and Fraser Robertson and Bermuda based Counsel Ashley Fife.
The Guide, which is collated by undertaking independent research by a team of private wealth researchers over a 12 month period, describes them as "technically sound, providing great customer service and an immaculate turnaround period” as well as stating “I would say you can completely trust and rely on them – both their legal skills and their judgement."
Speaking on the recognition, Carlos, who was described as the “go-to Cayman trusts person” and is the Head of Appleby’s Private Client & Trusts team commented: “We are delighted to be recognised across our multi-jurisdictional Private Client & Trusts practice. We believe this demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best possible outcome for our clients, as well as the dynamic and comprehensive knowledge we share as a global team.”
Appleby's highly regarded Private Client & Trusts group provides trust and foundation services to high net worth individuals, families, and fiduciary companies. They advise on all aspects of trust law, including the establishment, administration, restructuring and termination of private, charitable, commercial trusts and foundations. Members of the global team act in a personal capacity as Protector, Enforcer and Director (of PTCs) for a number of discretionary trusts.
