Appleby has completed its merger with Isle of Man firm Dickinson Cruickshank, creating the world’s largest offshore firm.
The combined firm has 74 partners, 200 lawyers and offices in 11 countries including Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, the Seychelles, Bahrain, Mauritius, Hong Kong, London and the Isle of Man.

Group managing partner Peter Bubenzer said: “Our entry into the Isle of Man market further builds our strength and depth across multiple jurisdictions, providing greater resources and greater choice to all of our clients and their advisers.”
