Island law firms recognised by Chambers
A number of lawyers from Appleby Bermuda and Carey Olsen Bermuda have been recognised in the 2018 Chambers Global Rankings.
Keith Robinson, a partner of Carey Olsen Bermuda is recognised for his particular emphasis on Bermudian trust disputes and hailed as “a fine trusts lawyer”, while managing partner Michael Hanson is recognised as “very knowledgeable”.
Mr Hanson said: “Carey Olsen Bermuda is a brand new entrant in Bermuda so it's very encouraging to see prominent recognition from a respected publication like Chambers Global so quickly. It reflects the calibre and strength of our offering in Bermuda even at this very early stage.”
Appleby's Bermuda office maintains its Band 1 rankings in insurance and dispute resolution.
Partners Brad Adderley and Alan Bossin are ranked Band 1 in insurance, a distinction they have held for many years. Mr Adderley is noted for his “deep knowledge and great relationship network”, while Mr Bossin is described by clients as “commercial and pragmatic”.
Tim Faries, Bermuda managing partner and global head of insurance, is ranked as an Eminent Practitioner for his leadership and influence in the practice area.
Partner John Wasty, head of the Bermuda dispute resolution department continues to be ranked Band 1 for his expertise, and John Riihiluoma is ranked as a Senior Statesman for his wealth of knowledge.
Appleby's corporate department is noted as “incredibly responsive, commercial and business-thoughtful”. Clive Langley is described as a highly esteemed practitioner with a particular focus on asset finance transactions, while Steven Rees Davies is said to be “very approachable” and being “commercial and business-driven in his advice”.
Mr Faries, said: “We continue to be very pleased with our Chambers rankings, and most importantly, we are delighted with the superb feedback from our esteemed clients, referrers and peers. Our team is comprised of highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioners who are committed to doing first-rate work for our clients and Bermuda.”
Last week it was reported that the dispute resolution team at another island firm, MJM Limited, had been Band 1 ranked by Chambers.
Chambers and Partners has been ranking the best lawyers since 1990, and now covers 185 jurisdictions.
