During her career Judy has won numerous awards and has been repeatedly recognised by the legal directories as one of Asia’s leading lawyers, with a strong corporate finance, capital markets and investment fund experience. Judy commented, “It’s an honour to win the Offshore Award for the second time, and to be recognised for my part in the continuing success of the Appleby Hong Kong team, as we continue to raise our profile in the offshore corporate advisory space across Asia. I’m proud to be associated to the Asia Women in Business Law Awards and the charities that they support and hope that they continue to encourage future generations of women to join our industry”.

In addition to Judy’s success, Partner, Fiona Chan, was also recognised in the Rising Star – Finance category. Fiona advises on a full spectrum of banking and finance, non-contentious insurance, and private client and trust matters, relating to the laws of Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.
