Legal Market Overview
The most prominent names in the Isle of Man market include multi-jurisdictional offshore firm Appleby and long-standing independent firm Cains. New model law firm Keystone Law has also built a strong presence in the Manx market since launching in 2016. DQ and Simcocks are other key firms in the market, alongside independents Long & Humphrey and MannBenham Advocates Limited. The Isle of Man’s regulatory environment is somewhat different, leading to those who would be referred to as “partners” in most markets being styled as “directors” at some firms, although this does not make any substantive difference to the client’s experience of instructing the firm.
