Offshore law firm Appleby has promoted two lawyers as partners and appointed five lawyers as counsel to the firm.
The new internal appointments, which are effective from 1 April 2010, follow the announcement earlier this month that five high profile partners have joined the firm from other offshore law firms.
The new counsel and partner promotions will reinforce the firm’s capability in corporate and commercial, real estate, litigation and insolvency, trusts and family across its worldwide offices.
The two new partners are: Naomi Rive, based in Jersey, who advises on all aspects of trusts; and Charles Davies, based in the Isle of Man, who specialises in complex corporate and commercial disputes and arbitration often with a shipping focus.
The lawyers promoted as counsel to the firm are: Miriam Daugherty, based in the Isle of Man, a member of the litigation and insolvency practice group; Jeremy Leese, based in the British Virgin Islands, part of the corporate and commercial practice group; Andrew Webb and Paul Branford in the corporate and commercial practice group in the Isle of Man; and Victoria Myerson, who leads the family law practice group in Jersey.
Group managing partner Peter Bubenzer (pictured) says: “I am delighted that we have been able to promote so many talented lawyers across our offices and practice groups. With the new partners who have just joined us, they underscore our market leading position as the number one offshore law firm and the breadth and depth of experience and expertise we offer clients, combined with an unrivalled choice across the world’s major offshore financial centres.”
