Legal 500, one of the leading international legal directories which provide rankings of law firms based purely on client feedback recently published their UK results. The rankings are based on feedback from 250,000 in-house peers, client feedback and independent assessment of law firms’ deals and confidential matters.

As the only offshore law firm with a presence in all three Crown Dependencies, Appleby have received notable rankings across their offices and have continued to hold top tier ranking in many sectors, including, Banking and Finance, Corporate and Commercial, Gambling, Insurance and Pensions, Employment, Dispute Resolution and Commercial Property.

In addition, the directory also recognised 27 Appleby lawyers as either “leading individuals”, “next generation partners” or “rising stars” across their Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Private Client and Trusts and Property practice groups from their Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey offices.

Valuable client feedback continued to provide the directory with praise across the board. Client feedback this year stated the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey firms are “organised and responsive and it’s a pleasure working with them” and that “because all the offshore offices are connected, they are able to deliver a seamless service which some other firms cannot”.
