In addition, the Group secured notable rankings across more than 10 practice areas in these jurisdictions, including Band 1 rankings for Corporate & Finance, Dispute Resolution, and Insurance in Bermuda; Real Estate in the Cayman Islands; and General Business Law (International Firms) in the Seychelles.
Commentary and feedback in this year’s guide includes Bermuda’s Insurance team being described as a ‘very strong practice with excellent contacts throughout Bermuda’, while the office’s Dispute Resolution practice was similarly highlighted as ‘one of the strongest teams on the island’. In the Cayman Islands, Appleby remains the only top-ranked firm for Real Estate with the team considered ‘second to none’ and ‘undoubtedly the most knowledgeable property lawyers in the Cayman Islands’. The Cayman corporate team is also a standout with feedback stating the team ‘provides an unmatched service in terms of responsiveness, always delivering a high-quality product, and on time’.
Other industry sources cited within the directory praised the BVI Corporate team for providing ‘fantastic client service’ and described the Dispute Resolution practice as ‘excellent’. The Seychelles office is noted for its ability in ‘managing the international dimension’ of matters, while in Mauritius Appleby’s ‘dedicated team’ is praised for ‘handling matters expeditiously’.
When combined with the recently published Chambers Asia-Pacific and UK rankings, a selection of which are included as part of the Global guide, it means more than 40 lawyers from across Appleby’s international network of offices have been recognised in the 2023 Global rankings.
Appleby Group Managing Partner Malcolm Moller said: “Chambers and Partners is a highly respected publication and this excellent set of rankings is testament to the quality and calibre of our global teams and their ability to deliver excellent client service across all sectors and locations. As always, we are very grateful for the ongoing support and feedback from our clients who took the time to recognise our efforts with researchers as well as the continued commitment and hard work from everyone at Appleby that contributed to such an encouraging result.”
