Appleby (or the firm) staff had the unique and exciting opportunity of getting up close to the iconic America’s Cup trophy on Friday 15 May during a VIP visit to the firm’s office by the America’s Cup Event Authority. Appleby is the Official Law Firm of the 2017 America’s Cup.
Chief of Development at the America’s Cup Event Authority, Steven Roberts, talked to Appleby employees about the exciting 2017 America’s Cup event taking place in Bermuda, while Golden Gate Yacht Club Commodore Norbert Bajurin provided a brief history on the event and the trophy.
Appleby staff took part in a group photo and many took their own “selfies” with the trophy, spreading their excitement at seeing the Cup via social media using the hashtag #thecupstopshere by posting their photos online.

“I’d like to thank Steven Roberts and Commodore Norbert Bajurin for their time and bringing us this special and unforgettable experience.”
