The Bermuda office of international law firm Appleby has the most lawyers on-island ranked in the insurance and dispute resolution categories in the 2020 edition of Chambers Global, the firm said.

Chambers is a leading reference and ranking guide for law firms and lawyers based purely on client feedback.

The firm said two additional lawyers are ranked this year, partner Tammy Richardson-Augustus and counsel Hannah Tildesley.

Appleby’s insurance practice is “a cut above the rest”, and ranked in Band 1, the firm said. The “renowned” practice includes partners Brad Adderley, Band 1, and Alan Bossin, Band 2.

Mr Adderley is “one of the most notable insurance lawyers, both in Bermuda and internationally”. One source explained: “Brad is very sensitive to commercial realities in the insurance industry and he has given us actionable advice.”

Tim Faries, Bermuda managing partner and global head of insurance, is an “eminent practitioner” and regarded as “very eloquent and knowledgeable of the law”. One commentator said the team is “responsive and very client-oriented”.

Appleby’s dispute resolution practice has a “deep bench of experienced practitioners” with John Wasty, global co-head of dispute resolution and head of Bermuda’s dispute resolution practice ranked Band 1 for his “ability to balance his legal expertise with the commercial aspects of rendering advice to clients”.

John Riihiluoma is a “senior statesman”, while partner Steven White is ranked Band 3 and described as a “very effective” advocate, and Ms Tildesley is an “up and coming” lawyer. Sources say: “They have a very strong dispute resolution and insolvency team. They have the respect of their peers and good rapport with the Bermudian judges.”

Appleby’s “prominent” corporate practice is recognised for a range of transactional work, with partner Clive Langley ranked Band 2, and partners Steven Rees Davies and Tammy Richardson-Augustus ranked Band 3, the firm said. Clients say the firm “inspires confidence in their knowledge and expertise”.

Mr Langley has a “very strong aircraft financing practice”, while Mr Rees Davies is noted for his “very good, intelligent” counsel on corporate mandates.

Ms Richardson-Augustus is highly recommended for her “analytical” approach to complex international transactions, the firm said. Clients say: “She understands our needs and it makes communication very easy.”
