Appleby celebrates addition of two new advocates and trainee exam success

Appleby Isle of Man is celebrating the addition of new advocates Katherine Johnson and Alexandra Watterson, as well as the exam success of two trainees.

Johnson joined the firm as a trainee advocate in 2011. She was called to the Manx Bar in November 2013 following a two-year period of articles and achieving a commendation in the Manx Bar exams.

She will be based in Appleby’s corporate and commercial team and has experience in a broad range of corporate matters, including insurance and regulatory advice, legal due diligence and corporate restructuring. Johnson has recently returned from a four-month secondment in Appleby’s Guernsey office where she strengthened her multi-jurisdictional expertise and worked on a number of banking and asset finance transactions.

Appleby’s corporate and commercial practice has also welcomed Watterson as an associate after she was called to the Manx Bar in November 2013. Watterson also joined Appleby as a trainee in 2011. During her articles, she gained experience in a range of corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, fund and financial services, legal due diligence, banking and asset finance transactions and multi-jurisdictional corporate restructuring. 

Trainee advocates Sophia Wong and Andrew Newton are also celebrating after passing the Manx Bar exams. Both joined Appleby in September 2012 as trainees and are currently completing their period of articles.
