Appleby, one of the world’s largest providers of offshore legal, administrative and fiduciary services, has been shortlisted in the “Offshore Firm of the Year” category for the 2014 The Lawyer Awards.
Now in its 20th year, The Lawyer Awards recognise firm excellence across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar. In determining finalists, The Lawyer’s editorial team conducts a comprehensive research process, interviewing hundreds of lawyers and their clients to supplement nominations.
As part of its global network, Appleby is the only offshore group able to offer advice across the Crown Dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
Sean Dowling, Managing Partner of Appleby (Isle of Man) LLC, said: ‘Being shortlisted for this respected and prestigious award further underlines the exceptional quality of our work and excellent service we deliver to clients.
‘There are many reasons why we are in contention for this award, notably because Appleby offers an unparalleled offshore presence through its international network of offices. This means clients don’t have to manage a large group of advisers for complex, multi-jurisdictional matters and projects.
‘We develop local, regional and international relationships in the Isle of Man and further afield through a one firm approach – our clients get relevant advice in their time-zone and benefit from our ability to access the skills and expertise of our global network of people to deliver advice and services in the most efficient way.’
Mr Dowling added: ‘Appleby is committed to expanding the availability of our award-winning services, as the opening of our office in Shanghai in 2012 and the recent confirmation that we have become the first offshore legal group licensed to provide offshore legal advice in Mainland China demonstrate.’
Winners will be announced at a ceremony in the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Wednesday 25 June 2014.
