David Bulley transferred to Appleby’s Hong Kong office in June 2020 after four and a half years in Appleby’s Cayman Islands office. David leads the Private Equity, Venture Capital and M&A practice areas as well as the office’s corporate restructuring, distressed debt and special situations practice specialising in Cayman law.  In 2020 David completed in excess of USD30bn of M&A transactions.

This year David was also named in Asian Legal Business’ “Top 40 Under 40” list with clients praising his ability to “deal with different complex Cayman PE / M&A legal issues” and commenting on his recent relocation clients “believe he can help the Hong Kong legal community to understand more about Cayman law and the evolution of Cayman Law in the future” and the global head of private equity at one US law firm calling him “by far the best Cayman counsel I have encountered in my career”.

David commented “I am delighted to be recognised for my M&A work for two years in a row and I look forward to continuing to deliver my Cayman expertise to our Asia Pacific client base.  Whilst H1 2020 was a challenging year for global M&A, the recent increase in M&A volume and value looks set to continue into 2021, with a strong transaction pipeline already forming.”

Managing Partner of the Hong Kong office, Cameron Adderley commented “David is a highly accomplished lawyer who adds tremendous value to every matter he is involved in. David combines attention to detail with a fiercely practical and unfailingly responsive approach and consequently is trusted and esteemed counsel to clients throughout USA, Europe and Asia. Congratulations David on this well-deserved recognition.”
