Six lawyers from across Appleby’s global network have been recognised, with Partner and Head of Appleby’s Private Client & Trusts team, Carlos de Serpa Pimentel achieving Band 1 status. Also included in the Guide are Partner and Group Head for the Private Client and Trusts practice in Bermuda, Vanessa Schrum, Jersey Partners David Dorgan and Fraser Robertson and Guernsey Partner Alison MacKrill. Cayman based Senior Associate Esmond Brown is also listed in the guide as an “Associate to watch” in the sector.

Market insiders praised the firm as a “long-standing player in the industry,” and commented on the “esteemed practitioners who give the firm a leading reputation in the market.” Sources also mentioned Appleby’s “high-quality team” as being “particularly good on the dispute side.”

Appleby’s highly regarded Private Client & Trusts group provides trust and foundation services and advice to high net worth individuals, families, and fiduciary companies. They advise on all aspects of trust law, including the establishment, administration restructuring and termination of private, charitable, purpose commercial trusts and foundations. Members of the team act in a personal capacity as Protector, Enforcer and Director (of PTCs) for a number of discretionary trusts and are frequently instructed by blue-chip trust institutions.

Global Head of Private Client & Trusts, Carlos de Serpa Pimentel, commented, “This recognition is a true testament to the high level of expertise and skills across our global team, which has continually placed Appleby in the top ranks since this guide was introduced in 2016. The team was also acknowledged as one of the strongest and most responsive in the Cayman Islands.”
