Corporate Partner Fiona Chan and Managing Partner Judy Lee have both been named among the top offshore lawyers in Asia by ALB for the second year in a row.
The recognition marked the culmination of extensive research conducted by ALB which involved collating hundreds of questionnaires in their annual client survey with leading in-house counsel, lawyers in the onshore space and referees from financial institutes.
Judy Lee, Hong Kong Managing Partner and Head of Corporate, leads the office’s capital markets and investment funds teams and was recognised in the Special Mentions section of the survey. Her clients applauded her saying “we were very impressed with her professional service and excellent communication skills” and “she is very professional and talented. She knows Chinese clients well and she always provides great advice.
Fiona Chan continues to be recognised as one of the top 10 offshore lawyers across Asia in successive years. She leads the office’s banking & finance, private client & trust and insurance teams, advising clients on laws of Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands. Her practice spans banking and finance transactions including acquisitions, leveraged and project financing, shipping and aircraft financing, and bond issuance.
Commenting on the win, Judy Lee said “This serves as a testimony to our unfailing devotion to provide clients with the best service in the region. Appleby takes pride in being recognised by our loyal clients and continues to strive to maintain our position as a leading law firm in the offshore world.”
