Isle of Man Lawyers
Our team of 30 Isle of Man solicitors and lawyers advise clients on a wide range of legal matters, including corporate and commercial law, dispute resolution, private client and trust services, and regulatory matters. Further, they are also experts across growing sectors of prominence such as transport and logistics, eGaming and fintech.
The Appleby Isle of Man office is also able to offer on-the-ground legal advice in relation to British Virgin Islands (BVI) law with BVI-qualified lawyers practising from the jurisdiction – ensuring we have the ability to offer BVI legal advice across UK, European and US time zones.
In addition, our Isle of Man lawyers are well placed, given Appleby’s global presence, to facilitate the provision of legal advice in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
Isle of Man law firm
Appleby’s Isle of Man office, Appleby (Isle of Man) LLC, is the largest and one of the longest established Isle of Man law firms.
Led by 10 partners and employing more than 50 staff, Appleby is consistently ranked in the top tier of legal directories for our corporate and finance, dispute resolution, employment, eGaming, property, and shipping and aviation advice. As one of the leading international law firms in the Isle of Man, Appleby is praised for its capacity to handle “big ticket cases” (Chambers and Partners) and for its “ability to quickly grasp complex scenarios and to quickly and effectively identify workable and effective solutions to often unique problems” (The Legal 500).
Further solidifying our standing among the top Isle of Man law firms is recent award success which includes Appleby being named ‘Isle of Man Law Firm of the Year’ for three straight years (2020, 2021 and 2022) at the annual Who’s Who Legal Awards.
About the Isle of Man
The Isle of Man is a UK Crown Dependency located in the heart of the British Isles. As a jurisdiction, the Isle of Man has developed a reputation as a premier international finance centre in terms of innovation and regulation whilst retaining the delicate balance between providing a business-friendly environment and meeting international standards of financial supervision.
The island has a rich history dating back to before 6500 BC and has its own democratically elected Parliament called Tynwald, which dates back more than 1,000 years to be the world’s oldest continuous parliament.
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 Isle of Man lawyers have the ability to work closely with colleagues in Guernsey 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 Isle of Man is committed to supporting local charities and organisations. At the heart of our corporate responsibility strategy in the Isle of Man is a series of programmes that support the environment and ecosystem.
