The Isle of Man has developed a reputation as a premier financial jurisdiction in terms of regulation whilst retaining the delicate balance between providing a business friendly environment and meeting international standards of financial supervision.

Appleby’s Isle of Man office, Appleby (Isle of Man) LLC, is one of the longest established legal practices in the island, with nine partners and over 70 staff. Our lawyers are consistently ranked in the top tier of legal directories for our corporate and dispute resolution advice.

Our team of over 30 lawyers advise clients in relation to Isle of Man and British Virgin Islands law and facilitate the provision of legal advice in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey, Mauritius and the Seychelles.

In 2016 we were named “Isle of Man Law Firm of the Year” at the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards.

Appleby Projects in the Isle of Man


Appleby Isle of Man has been a proud sponsor of the Ellan Vannin Cycling Club for six years running. As part of this sponsorship we also sponsor the challenging 'Appleby Sportive' and the 'Appleby Youth Circuit Championships' which is a fast and exciting race for 6 to 16 year olds.

To keep abreast of key dates and information regarding the Sportive and/or the Appleby Youth Championships, please follow Appleby on Facebook or refer to the Ellan Vannin Cycling Club website.

Looking to grow and develop what is a relatively new sport on the island, the Triskelion Polo Club partnership is the latest initiative Appleby is backing as part of its ongoing commitment to support the island through its pillars of sport, education and youth.

Appleby Bursary Scheme


Launched in April 2018, the Appleby Bursary Scheme is the island’s first and only scheme, which supports students interested in pursuing a career in law. The scheme offers two bursaries annually, with financial assistance either for undergraduates entering the final year of their law degree and then continuing towards the Legal Practice Course (LPC), or for non-law graduates studying the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and then the LPC.
