Bedell Cristin appoints Partner in Singapore office


Bedell Cristin has appointed Joanne Verbiesen, an experienced senior private client and offshore litigation lawyer, as a Partner in its Singapore office.

Verbiesen, who has substantial offshore experience working for top tier firms in the Cayman Islands and Hong Kong, joins from HSBC in Hong Kong where she was a Senior Legal Counsel in the trust and fiduciary services business. Previously she has worked in senior positions in offshore firms in the Cayman Islands and in Hong Kong where she was a Partner.

A New Zealand qualified attorney with 16 years’ post qualification experience, she specialises in commercial litigation, contentious and non-contentious trusts and estates work, offshore corporate law, insolvency and re-structuring. She has been admitted in both New Zealand and Cayman and is a Registered Foreign Lawyer in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, Bedell Cristin, says: “Joanne’s recruitment to our Singapore office strengthens our capabilities in key overseas markets, enhances our client service proposition and supports our wider international ambitions. She will work closely with our other office teams, especially in the Cayman Islands and the BVI. Her wide-ranging experience in both the Far East and the Caribbean makes her a welcome addition to the Partnership.”
