Offshore giant Appleby is to target work coming out of the African, Asian and Indian markets with a new office in the Seychelles.
It comes weeks after Appleby merged with Isle of Man firm Dickinson Cruickshank (The Lawyer, 15 June).
The firm has appointed Conrad Benoiton, chairman of the Seychelles International Business Authority, as managing director of Appleby Corporate Services. Malcolm Moller, currently managing partner of Appleby’s Mauritius office, will also become managing partner of the Seychelles office.
He said: “Our presence will complement our Mauritius office and we will be well positioned to offer clients offshore services for Africa, Asia and India.”
