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.

Clients praised Fiona as “A pleasure to work with. She is efficient, commercial-minded and proactive. We are happy to know that our offshore legal work is in good hands.”

Fiona leads the office’s banking & finance, private client & trust, technology & innovation and insurance teams, advising clients on 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.

ALB also highlighted Fiona as a strong advocate for women in law, acknowledging that Fiona is also a member of Women in Law Hong Kong, as well as leading Appleby’s female leaders networking events.

Commenting on the recognition, Fiona said “I feel honoured to have been recognised for the third year in a row and to have received such positive feedback from clients. At Appleby we always strive to provide the best service in the region and this recognition acts as testimony to this dedication.”
