Appleby

Able to advise on Cayman and BVI law, as well as on Bermudan matters following the relocation of Cameron Adderley to Hong Kong, Appleby's seven-partner team continues its upward trajectory in the region, and has the critical mass to handle an increasingly diverse array of matters across the transactional and litigation spectrum. The firm's strength, however, remains on the capital markets front; it continues to handle a raft of Hong Kong IPOs. Judy Lee has been at the forefront of many of these equity listings, including her work as Cayman counsel for BGMC International on its listing on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. 'Very impressive' counsel Vincent Chan is also a key equity capital markets practitioner, and is praised for his 'ability to provide timely and practical Cayman law advice'. Chan also handles a significant amount of M&A mandates, recently assisting Adderley with advising Shandong Gold on its acquisition of a 50% stake in Minera Argentina Gold (MAG), through the acquisition of both MAG and its majority shareholder Argentina Gold (Bermuda) II. The addition in February 2017 of Nicholas Davies was recognised as 'a very astute hire', strengthening and broadening the office's finance offering to include funds finance and structured finance capabilities.
