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.

Fiona leads the office’s banking & finance, private client & trust, technology & innovation and insurance teams, advising clients on the laws of Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands. She is also the editor of the Appleby Asia Alert, a quarterly newsletter for Asian clients on the latest legal and regulatory developments in the offshore jurisdictions.

Fiona commented “I feel honoured to have been recognised for the fourth year in a row and to have received such positive feedback from clients. At Appleby we always strive to provide our clients with the latest legal insights and pragmatic advice to help their business accomplish its goals under any circumstances, such as the challenges posed by COVID-19, and this recognition acts as testimony to this.”

Vincent has over 12 years of offshore law experience in the areas of equity and debt capital markets, mergers & acquisition, private equity, banking & asset finance, and private client and trusts & foundations. He is a key member of the M&A team and has been involved in a number of significant M&A and private equity transactions, such as the recent GLP’s strategic investment partnership with China Merchants Group by way of acquisition of a 50 percent stake in its private equity investment vehicle, China Merchants Capital. He was also recently listed in ALB’s 2019 “Top 40 under 40” list recognising the 40 most accomplished lawyers in Asia under 40 years of age.

Vincent commented on his recognition and said “I am delighted to be chosen among other top offshore lawyers in Asia. As a firm, we believe that understanding client’s needs and being proactive and conscious of the developments in the market, industry and trends is the key to for us to stand out as a go-to offshore law firm.”
