STEP noted that this year saw a record breaking number of nominations, with a total 319 submissions across 27 countries, making for an intense competition.

Carlos de Serpa Pimentel, Partner and Global Head of the Private Client & Trusts team, said, “Attaining this type of recognition for the work that our Private Client & Trusts team carries out is always excellent, and is certainly a testament to the quality of the lawyers in our team and their commitment to delivering market-leading advice and services to our clients.”

Appleby is one of five firms shortlisted for the award. Winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on 9 December 2020 and will be chosen by a panel of experts selected by the judges consisting of internationally renowned solicitors, lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, barristers and trust companies.  Appleby previously won the prestigious International Legal Team of the Year award in 2014/15.
