Guernsey has attracted a range of financial services businesses focusing on banking, investment funds, fiduciary services, insurance and asset management. In April 2009, the OECD placed Guernsey on its “White List” of approved jurisdictions, stating that it adhered to the internationally agreed principles of transparency and co-operation for the exchange of tax related information. Guernsey has signed numerous tax information exchange agreements (TIEAs) and will continue to do so with a view to reinforcing its commitment to international cooperation and recognition.
Appleby (Guernsey) LLP was established over a decade ago and focuses on the three core areas of Corporate, Dispute Resolution and Private Client & Trusts.
We advise clients in relation to Guernsey law and are able to facilitate the provision of legal advice in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius and the Seychelles under the Appleby umbrella.
The Crown Dependencies law firm
Appleby is the only international law firm with a presence in all three of the British Crown Dependencies – Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey. It means our Guernsey lawyers have the ability to work closely with colleagues in the Isle of Man and Jersey to provide clients with a seamless and consistent pan-jurisdictional service from the same firm.
Our Crown Dependencies capability statements highlight the firm’s combined multi-jurisdictional offshore offering in further detail across our Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Regulatory, and Private Client & Trusts practice areas.
Appleby projects in Guernsey
At the heart of our corporate responsibility strategy in Guernsey is a series of programmes that support the environment, education and local charities.
