The recognition for 2021 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. It is Fiona’s fifth year in a row to be recognised, and Vincent’s second year to be named in the Offshore Client Choice List.
Fiona leads the office’s Banking & Finance, private client and technology practice 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 fifth year in a row. It is particularly gratifying to have received such positive feedback from clients. Covid-19 has created an environment where it is more important than ever to ensure our clients receive timely legal insights and pragmatic advice to help their business accomplish its goals under any circumstances, and this recognition acts as testimony to this.”
Vincent has over 13 years of offshore law experience in the areas of capital markets, mergers & acquisition and private client & trusts. He has been involved in a number of significant transactions, such as global offering and listing of Cheshi Holdings Limited on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and the privatisation of China Baofeng (International) Limited by way of scheme of arrangement.
Vincent commented on his recognition and said “I am delighted to be chosen again among other top offshore lawyers in Asia. As a firm, our strength and success rests on understanding and delivering our client’s needs in line with developments in the market which makes this recognition particularly satisfying to receive.”
