Financial and corporate

Appleby is the only offshore firm with offices in all three crown dependencies, with bases in Guernsey and Jersey in addition to the Isle of Man. The firm also has offices in the Caribbean, in Africa in Mauritius and the Seychelles and in Asia in China and Hong Kong. The firm even offers BVI advice out of its Douglas office. 

The firm acts on a variety of banking, capital markets and M&A matters and is particularly active in the insurance and real estate sectors. 

Highlights from the research period include advising Nomura International on a loan to GVC Holdings; advising Latham & Watkins as it advised Blackstone and CVC Capital Partners on the acquisition of the Paysafe Group; and acting for NEPI Rockcastle in relation to the establishment of a MTN programme and the first issue of notes under it. 

The only staffing change at the firm was the departure of corporate partner Simon Cain.
