Appleby wins Citywealth award
International law firm Appleby has won a top prize at the annual Citywealth IFC Awards in London.
The firm, which has offices in ten jurisdictions including Bermuda, was named law firm of the year in the litigation category.
It finished runner-up for the law firm of the year award for Hong Kong and Singapore.
Appleby was nominated for law firm of the year for the combined location of Bahamas, Bermuda and Cayman.
The firm said the Citywealth awards aim to highlight the excellence of advisers and managers in the private wealth sector in major international financial centres. Entrants are judged by an international panel of highly respected practitioners from all private wealth sectors covering all the jurisdictions.
Citywealth winners are those judged to have excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service, the firm said.
