Appelby raids competitors for talent
Appleby has augmented its partnership with the appointment of five new partners. Three of the new partners – Richard Addlestone, Julian Black and James Gaudin – join the firm from Walkers, a competitor in offshore legal, fiduciary and administration services.
Matthew Stocker was previously a partner at Maples and Calder, and Matthew Feargrieve was previously a partner at Mourant.
Group managing partner Peter Bubenzer said: “The strategic hire of these leading practitioners represents a significant addition to the firm’s strong corporate and commercial practice group, further enhancing our offering in Cayman and Jersey.
“One of our key strategic goals for 2010 is to continue our substantial investment in the right partners to underscore our market leading position and our ability to offer clients a range of jurisdictions and services unequalled by any other offshore firm.”
