Appleby’s Bermuda office continues to be ranked Band 1 in Insurance and is the only firm on the island with two partners in Band 1 for Insurance. Partners Brad Adderley and Alan Bossin have held this distinction for numerous, consecutive years. Tim Faries, Bermuda Managing Partner and Global Head of Insurance, is ranked as an Eminent Practitioner and regarded as a “highly influential lawyer”. The “pre-eminent practice” has considerable experience and is described by clients as “very responsive and knowledgeable” with one client highlighting the team’s “practical advice,” stating that as a result, “we knew what to expect and could anticipate and meet our deadlines.”

Appleby’s “impressive” Dispute Resolution practice is recognised by Chambers with John Wasty, Head of the Dispute Resolution practice in Bermuda continuing to be ranked Band 1, and John Riihiluoma ranked as a Senior Statesman for his wealth of knowledge. Counsel Steven White who joined the firm last year is also ranked as Band 3. Clients praise the team with one client saying: “I was impressed with the speed of response, the sound advice and willingness to discuss options, as well as the reasoning of that advice in a clear, concise way.”

Appleby’s “esteemed” corporate practice is recognised by Chambers for its capabilities in a range of transactional work, with partner Clive Langley ranked Band 2. The firm is noted by one client for its “quick turnaround,” while another source said: “They were great – helpful and responsive. They were very knowledgeable about the relevant Bermuda law.”

Chambers and Partners has been ranking the best lawyers since 1990, and now covers 190 countries across the world.
