Appleby was commended for its “seven-partner team [which] continues its upward trajectory in the region, and has the critical mass to handle an increasingly diverse array of matters across the transactional and litigation spectrum.”. In particular, Legal 500 highlighted the firm for its ability to advise on Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermudian law from its Hong Kong office, jurisdictions which are widely used in Asia.

Several lawyers received positive client testimonial with Partner Nicholas Davies, who joined Appleby Hong Kong in February 2017, recognised as ‘a very astute hire’ and Counsel Vincent Chan described as ‘very impressive’ and praised for his ‘ability to provide timely and practical Cayman law advice’.

Co-Managing Partner Cameron Adderley provides Appleby Hong Kong with a strong Bermudian centre following his relocation from Appleby’s Bermuda office in 2016 and co-Managing Partner Judy Lee remains at the forefront of equity listings which continues to be the firm’s strength.

Commenting on the recognition Judy observed “We have acted on a number of high profile matters and it is pleasing to see this recognised by Legal 500 who highlighted our involvement acting as Cayman counsel for BGMC International on its listing on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and our M&A expertise with Vincent Chan acting for Shandong Gold on its acquisition of a 50% stake in Minera Argentina Gold (MAG), through the acquisition of both MAG and its majority shareholder Argentina Gold (Bermuda) II.”

Cameron added “Our office in Hong Kong continues to grow and with that we have a team of lawyers who are able to advise in relation to Cayman, Bermuda and BVI laws and with specialisms in a diverse range of matters. This has been a strong year for the firm and we look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the astute professional advice they look for when choosing their offshore counsel.”
