The directory recognises 23 Appleby lawyers from our Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey offices

Legal 500, one of the leading international legal directories, published their UK results earlier this week. 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 gained notable rankings across their offices and continued to hold their top tier ranking in many sectors, including, Banking and Finance, Corporate and Commercial, Investment Funds and Capital markets, Shipping, Aviation and Space, Insurance and Pensions, Employment and Dispute Resolution.

In addition to these rankings, the directory also recognised 24 Appleby lawyers as either “leading individuals” or “next generation lawyers”
