Garry received the highest award in the category and is the only Isle of Man lawyer recognised at this year’s awards.  This is the second time Garry has been recognised by Citywealth, having received the Silver award at last year’s awards.

Faye Moffett, Managing Partner for Appleby Isle of Man, said: “Congratulations to Garry on receiving this prestigious award. Garry is a renowned M&A lawyer with a level of onshore M&A experience that is unmatched in the local market.  He has led on many of the largest and most high-profile Isle of Man M&A transactions since his return to the Isle of Man five years ago and is a very worthy winner of this accolade.

“On top of a full client workload, Garry finds time to contribute to the firm’s development programme by mentoring and supporting fee earners of all levels.  His personality and genuine interest in developing colleagues across the business makes him a popular mentor and supervisor.

“Garry’s involvement in all aspects of client work and people development inspires and motivates all who work with him.”

Some of Garry’s key instructions in the past 12 months have seen him lead Appleby’s corporate team on the establishment of a $1 billion litigation financing vehicle, the £467.9 million take-private of London-listed RDI REIT P.L.C., and Monument Re Group’s acquisition of LCLI International Life Assurance Company Limited and Charles Taylor Group’s other Isle of Man operations.

In addition to his client-facing work, Garry frequently provides input into legislative developments across a broad range of topics.  He was closely involved in the development of the Isle of Man’s new merger control regime, and he was also consulted about legislative developments in the areas of company law, cannabis regulation, economic substance and beneficial ownership.

Garry, who was educated in the Isle of Man and holds a first-class law degree from Oxford University, is passionate about giving back to the Isle of Man and mentoring the future generation.  He has mentored several students from underprivileged backgrounds, and he has returned to his former secondary school on numerous occasions to speak about career options and university applications.  He also participates in the Isle of Man Oxbridge Group, an informal voluntary group organised by a local high school teacher to encourage more state school pupils to apply to Oxbridge.
