The IFLR1000 Women Leaders list recognises a group of around 300 lawyers who are the best female lawyers working in their areas nationally. The highly respected international legal directory selects lawyers who are working at the top of their professions in their jurisdictions. They have impressive track records and are consistently recommended by clients and peers for the quality of their advice and service.

Appleby champions diversity across the organisation and has recently announced its global Female Leaders Network which aims to bring together a group of senior women in business, to meet on a regular basis to discuss a variety of topics including how to develop talented women within an organisation.

On receiving the recognition Judy commented “I am proud to have been recognised amongst this list of global leaders and in particular to be the only offshore lawyer to have been ranked in the Asia Pacific region. As a firm that has a global network which spans 10 jurisdictions, we are a naturally diverse organisation. Females account for more than half of the business as a whole, which is similarly reflected across our senior lawyers and other leaders.”
