Overview

  • Appleby Guernsey’s Corporate and Finance group continues to develop and consolidate its market position as one of the strongest offerings in Guernsey, particularly for banking transactions.
  • The experience of the group continues to grow, not only through the volume of matters completed, but through the addition of many new and passionate lawyers who have joined the team.
  • Our group regularly takes cross-border corporate & commercial work involving Appleby offices in one of the eight jurisdictions in which we operate. Our clients appreciate our ability to provide one point of contact, which enables them to reduce their exposure and involvement to numerous offshore firms and, as such, reduce inconsistencies in the advice given and control their costs.
