Anne Freeman joins Appleby’s corporate and commercial team as senior associate
Appleby has appointed Anne Freeman as a senior associate (solicitor, England and Wales) in its corporate and commercial team. Freeman previously worked in the corporate and banking practice at Conyers Dill & Pearman.
Freeman has provided legal advice on corporate borrowing and security, share sales and mergers and acquisitions, in addition to restructuring, insolvency and corporate reorganisation.
Her experience includes the application of purpose trust structures using Bermuda purpose trusts and exempted companies in the creation of bankruptcy remote vehicles to support the financing and operation of moveable assets and supporting directors in meeting legislative, compliance and fiduciary requirements in regards to offshore structures and their interaction with onshore corporate entities.
When practising on shore, Freeman’s particular experience was asset finance based with a specialisation in the representation of European lending syndicates and ECAs in the aviation markets of the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China.
She is co-author of the Bermuda chapter of Sweet and Maxwell’s Air Finance, Registration, Security and Enforcement 2011 and 2012.
Freeman, who has a full range of commercial, practical and legal experience, came to pursue a career in law following an earlier government and NGO strategic communications management consulting career based in North America. Following completion of a law degree in England in 1997, she trained with the London offices of LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & McRae before qualifying into its banking and finance team in 2001.
This was followed by a move to Norton Rose in 2002, where she participated in the asset finance practice of the firm from its London and then Paris offices. In 2007, Freeman relocated to Bermuda to take up a corporate and banking position with Conyers.
