Appleby attains licence to provide offshore legal advice in mainland China
Appleby has become the first offshore law firm licensed to provide offshore legal advice in mainland China where it has had a Shanghai base since 2012.
To date, the offshore fiduciary and legal advisory firm has been delivering fiduciary services only from Shanghai. The formal announcement of a legal practice certificate opens up the opportunity in China for Appleby significantly.
Partner Malcolm Moller will lead the development of Appleby’s offering in China, supported in Shanghai by associate Kate Li and fiduciary head of business development in China Scott Reid, as well as the firm’s Greater China team, which includes more than 15 partners and fee earners based on Hong Kong.
